Did you ever walk around a corner expecting nothing and nobody to be there only to nearly bump into someone? Whoa! You pull up short and suck in your breath...that's this photo.
I was in a small town outside of Beijing China just walking slowly through town and photographing doorways. I saw this door and was instantly caught by the light and composition. The shiny plaque on the door, a beam of sunlight, the old bicycle, the richness of the bricks, a dark foyer and brighter courtyard could it get any better?! I was very careful to get my settings just right, compose carefully, and then this man walked out into my photo...click! Perfect! His expression is as surprised in his 'caught off guard' moment as was mine!
He seemed friendly enough but since I had lost my guide and spoke no mandarin I made 1 exposure and hustled away. His timely arrival and quizzical expression makes this photo special.
