I haven’t seen this gentleman for weeks, but maybe he heard I had a new camera. I just came out of the underground and there he was. I composed my first shot slowly, so he would have time to shoo me away, but he didn’t. So I took it and waved a thank-you. Then he pointed to his sign in case I’d missed it.
I started to walk away when I realized that I had the camera set to ISO1600… so back again. Took this shot and got a little closer to him this time. I’m getting used to the fact that I have to be closer than I would normally like to be… but the small camera helps lessen the intimidation factor for the subject.
Two notes: I have to give this man credit for being able to hold his arm aloft so long. And the Chinese character in the upper left of the frame means "heart," or in this case "centre," referrring to the building. But I like heart here.

P.S. Already I'm forgetting to mention that this is a DP2.
