Tour Guide

Today’s image is of our tour guide in the Chinese Garden in Vancouver last week. It was late afternoon on a very dull day, so I had to shoot wide open at a low (for a Hasselblad) shutter speed. I’m surprised it turned out at all! Given the poor treatment of Asian Canadians in British Columbia (indeed all of Canada) in recent years, it was hard not to feel some shame, in the face of this man’s quiet dignity. He was old enough that he certainly would have experienced some of this first hand.
