When I exited the line 10 subway at the Huixinxijie Nankou station last Thursday on my way home from work, I saw this san lun che (with a not-unexpected crowd around it),
parked camped quite conspicuously in the crosswalk of a major intersection.
The characters on the banner translate to, “Wife, where are you?” The character written on the metal plate is for family.
You can see two pictures of what seems to be his wife and him in many of the shots.
From the look of things, I think he’s been on the road for quite awhile. I’d also guess that he was from the countryside, but don’t really know.
So, where is a long-haired guy in a South Sydney Rabbitohs shirt, white pants, black boots, and an acoustics guitar slung over his back going at 8 am on a Thursday morning?
I haven’t got a clue.
Shot yesterday with my D300/14 mm from waist-level on-board the subway going to work. There’s a back story to it, but for now I’ll just say I think it is one of the best pictures I’ve taken.
