Shenzen – China

Street scene, Shenzen, China

I was accompanying some friends who were on a business trip to Shenzen with my wife. It’s modern, relatively clean and expensive. Just another big Chinese city that does not have much history. As I was wandering the streets I spotted this household broom seller who appeared out of place in this modern city. Perhaps the only bit of modernity is his handphone. Talking to one of his esteemed customers?

    I love the breadth of choice in colour he has for his customers – “Fancy a purple or a pink broom? No? Well lime-green is the colour of this season, I hear!” Great picture. What are the odds that he will still be cycling around hawking his wares if you go back to Shenzen now?
