Boy In The Frame

Boy standing in frame

The boy looked through the frame

Shot in Shiquang Jie in Suzhou, China.

There was a shop selling signboard in the street. And a boy was in the shop. After he noticed me, he stopped moving. And he started to stare at my SLR camera surprisingly through the frame put in the storefront.

Some Chinese characters were written on the upper part of the frame though, I couldn't understand what did it mean. It might be a kind of advertising blurb. I wondered these advertising statements didn't exist before the reform and door-opening policies started.

I thought it was unfortunate that the ways of the abbreviation of Chinese characters were different between in China and Japan. If it was same, it was much fun to travel the Chinese mainland.
