Self Promotion

This photograph was taken in Beijing last week. It’s of an elder man playing a traditional Chinese instrument, which I haven’t been able to properly identify. It’s played like a violin, but has only one or two strings. He was playing up against a temporary fence made by construction workers in the city. The colors of the rusting blue metal were a beautiful and almost metaphoric background for the musician.
For those who haven’t visited my main site in a while I just wanted to shamelessly ask that you have a look and let me know what you think about the approach to the organization of content. I’ll be posting a portfolio section soon with single images. Any ideas for the title of this category? They will be images that stand alone. Thanks for having a look.

    According to a musically inclined friend of mine, “the picture is an erhu.”

    This photo reminds me of the two guys playing checkers in Rabat. Weren’t the colors similar somehow? The lighting, the contemplation, the indifference to the camera? I like this a lot.
