Hard graft, a clean sweep

Clean sweep, hard graft.jpgIn the first ever photowalks in Guangzhou, I came upon a young boy and his mother. Perfect subjects for street photography I thought. It was 5 or so minutes before I moved on, but enough to surmise a story of the pair. I’m not sure that the mother owned the store where they were sweeping up leaves in front of, but it was certainly a case of monkey see, monkey do. By all means the mother (and I guess the father as well) are hard working Guangzhou-ites more keen on money than the time to spend it. Work-life balance anyone?
