02.21 — Waiting in the Slush


Note: I am on winter break, traveling Asia. As such, today’s Snapshot has a shorter-than-usual caption in order to save time to maximize my vacation enjoyment (and the potential for future Snapshots from places like Japan, Thailand, and Singapore).

I saw this woman waiting to cross the road and just could not resist sneaking a picture. I’m not sure who she is; I was drawn by the contrasting visual of her red hair and blue hat, and by the reflections in the snowmelt-slicked street in front of her, and how the whole scene somehow struck me as incredibly Chinese despite containing approximately zero signifiers which explicitly denote that this picture was specifically captured in the People’s Republic of China.
