On Keefer Street Market in Chinatown Vancouver BC, a soothsayer helps a client investigate his future.

For this shot, I took a close-up reading of the table cloth which seemed to have luckily been an 18% grey. I got a f/1.8 at 1/60th on tri-X film. I waited for the kid to move out of the way long enough for me to steady myself.

This image is being used for an article at Madatoms (a division of FOX TV on the web) LIVING THE DREAM:
PSYCHICS ARE BETTER THAN THERAPISTS at madatoms.com/site/blog/psychic…

Thanks for everyone who is checking it out. For your perusal, I have other shots from this era in my gallery benoitaubry.deviantart.com/gal…

Thank you for checking out my page after seeing it as a DD. This image in particular is special to me and I'm glad others see it in the same way. A HUGE thank you to everyone who faved the page.

I can see why this is one of your favorites! Gritty and grounded, yet sort of surreal. Love it.
