Old boy writer, hits the spot

Old boy writer.jpgBegging is not an uncommon activity in China and, I’d seen this old boy before. But, I didn’t make the connection between his doing calligraphy and, him asking for money. He was obviously going about it the right way, as I watched someone search through his wallet for ‘small change’* and put it into the old boy’s collection bucket.

I felt moved. I’d always intended to pay my ‘models’ for the posing they’d done. I gave him some small change too.

* Small change in Guangzhou, usually comes in the form of notes of small denominations as coins are seldom circulated in this province.
