Chinatown #5


Photo by Elaine Layabout

The image was taken three years ago, on august 24, while i was spending my birthday in chinatown taking street pics . . . that particular alley is on the north side of 835 n. broadway, looking toward tak shing hong, which sells chinese herbs and groceries . . . it was the golden hour, and the fiery glow of late sun on the red painted bricks made the alley look like a portal to another world . . . i took an uncharacteristically long time to set up this shot and then took just one, because the moment passed very quickly . . . i have gone back to that alley several times, but it has never looked the same. – Elaine Layabout
