The Golden Boy (Faces of Chinatown)

I never saw the movie with that title, but for some reason that's what popped into my head when I saw this interesting little boy sitting there floors above the ground in what looked like a cage. He looks content in the first picture I took, but when I came back he was no longer happy as you can see in the middle picture.






I took more pictures of this red building I plan to post them in the future.

  1. Do you know what it says over the doorway? I think it's Chinese for Take No Pictures! Just kidding!
    When I saw the first photo I thought the little boy was in a cage.
    Love the red building!

  9. The series is interesting and the pictures have sense seen together. I can decide if he's sad or only bored... Very good shots.

  10. Great capture. I love the red! He sure does look unhappy in the 2nd photo. Must be difficult to get out and play living in that part of the city!

  12. I'm so glad i waited to comment on this until I saw it on my computer and not my iPhone. I couldn't see the difference in the little boy...I agree with you about it looking like a cage...it's like he's not allowed anywhere else. Wonderful :)

  14. Your photos are filled with human interest stories, James.
