Photo of the Day (1/23/08)

This shot by Kevinlin034 brought to mind a few of my encounters with children when I’ve traveled. Doesn’t this child’s face make you want to make the same face back? Watching kids haul stools and serve food is quite common in family run businesses in Asia. I don’t know if this is a young child who is pulling up a stool for himself, or if he’s been put to work. Someone has just finished lunch. Considering this was taken in Taiwan, I bet it was delicious.

One of the composition qualities I like here is the repetition of red. Notice the line that goes from the stacked stools in the back to the red of the stool in the foreground. The adults in the background aren’t even noticing this scene.
