A great story Skye, and i agree he has a fantastic face, very photogenic and full of character. He has a look that says 'OK here she goes again, pokin that camera in my face', great stuff. Good note too!
Welcome to trek lens by the way.
Thanks for sharing.

Hi and welcome to TL. Interesting note. Looks like an interesting character. There is something about the way he looks and dresses that tell you he is slow. Well captured.

This is such a nice portrait. This guy seems to be very funny. I really enjoyed your note! It's nice you managed to show the guys in the background too.

Nice portrait. I really like how casual this is. And, how your friend was nice enough to always let you take his pic (I had a friend that was the exact opposite). I like the details in the background, like that man with one shoe on and their clothing and how it differs from your friends. Good shot. And, welcome to TL!

What a wonderfully interesting portrait of this interesting person. The whole compostion is interesting, but does not take focus away from Tobi. I really like the one shoe.

You can tell that he's quite a character, and the men in the background look interesting too!
Love all the interesting details and vivid colors here! It's a comfortable shot.
wow! the glasses, the hat, the beard, that plaid shirt. i can tell this guy is really some character. shot against the natives in the background, the result is quite remarkable. one of the finer portraits i've seen in a while. natural and unpretentious. i like this one a lot. hope to see more of your encounters.

Une très belle photographie hors du temps …
Bien vu !!!
Skye, great story, and it goes along with the picture so well!! I love the lighting, and your character - we can feel immidiately that he's quite the character, which is awesome in a photo!
Where are you in China? Xingzhang?
...I must say I also like your title: Mafan, which means stupid/ridiculous in Chinese. Lovely choice of words! OOOOPPPPSSS just realised it's your nickname... **blush!!**
