Retired Kite Vendor

  1. Me and my girlfriend at the time were walking around Tiananmen Sq. (site of the massacre of pro democracy students in 1989) and happened upon this elderly gentleman selling kites. We bought one from him and he gave me the okay to take his portrait.

    Fantastic shot, Justin. What kind of kite did you buy?
     
  4. Gordon - Thanks for the kind words.

    Leigh - It was just a small kite of a dragon with that had a few tails. I never got to fly it...instead I sent it home to my little brother.

    Great portrait... Can only imagine what he has seen in his long lifetime.
     
  6. Nice portrait, Justin! Wonder what it would look like draganized?
     
  7. Great capture Justin...I love these kinds of images. So much history that those wrinkles have witnessed.
