Street scene in New York’s Chinatown.

Would you have kept this shot? My hunch is that many photographers, seeing this on their camera’s display, would have given it the flick.

And yet, when you view it on even a tablet-size display, it really pops. The red just pops and the four figures, although not looking at each other, are all somehow connected via a kind of skewiff symmetry.

A quirky little visual treasure.
