Photographer's Note

I met the old man at a bread stand. I showed him a slip of paper that asked in Chinese if I could take his photo. He waved his hand no. I ended up paying for his bread anyway. He was so taken aback by my goodwill gesture that he waved me to follow him around the corner and into a small, dark room, about the size of a closet. His wife joined us and brought me a beer and an orange. Neither of us spoke each other's language. He kept giving me a thumbs up sign and I did the same to him. After about 20 minutes, he pointed to my camera and motioned that I could take the photo. It was truly one of my most memorable experiences of my life.
