This week the Alhambra Source introduces a new feature: [email protected] These are portraits of the City of Alhambra and the people who go about their lives here.
Hsin Tai Liu is a classical piano teacher on facutly at Pasadena Music Conservatory who was driving down Valley Boulevard when he spotted a restaurant worker and stopped his car to take this photograph.
The photo: "Well, I was driving down the street and saw this man was sitting there alone – eating frantically. Not even sure if he chewed his food. So I stopped the car, rolled down the window and started taking pictures of him. I waited for around 20 seconds or so hoping that he would turn around and look at me – and he did! He was stunned for around three seconds wondering why there is a guy stopped in the middle of the road taking pictures of him. It felt like I was being watched by a disturbed lion. Then I smiled and waved, and drove off."The photographer: "I want to specialize in street photography, and hopefully I can have the chance to take interesting photos that will age well with time."
We found Hsin Tai Liu on Flickr. Hsin was using a Nikon 50D when he took his photo.
