unofficial toll gate

shoti (somewhere in, China) on 1 March 2010 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

the guy trying to charge us from fees for passing by 'his' post. we told him we didn't bring enough money and already spent all paying the other 'toll passes'. nevertheless, he allowed us to pass. and I took a shot of him and his daughter.

I like this bird eyed shot a lot and his cute smile is so nice. And, see, when you are on strong contrasts yourself, it's very cool too ;) The monochrome is superb*

@k@: strong contrasts, for me at least, aren't suited to every photo. high contrasts suits this image well. glad you liked it too Karine :)
