Beijing Street Scene

I hesitated posting this shot for quite some time as I do not feel that it represents what we saw in China. However, poverty is everywhere, even in China. (Heck, I see more beggers every day on my way to work in Chicago than anything I saw in China.) Still, this poor soul put himself right on a busy walkway and I took the shot. What I really remember in China is the aggressive street sellers at all the tourist stops. Any chance at all, you got swamped with dozens of street hawkers looking to sell anything they could to you. Very aggressive. Anyway, I think this turned out to be an interesting shot.
