This is my favorite elderly woman at the floating market. She's been selling potstickers from a boat for as long as I can remember. I bring her a photo each year and she's always very appreciative.
This green Buddha head was for sale in the market place, so I snagged a short depth of field shot which included a shopper to give the image a sense of place.
