Photographer's Note

In Saigon, in a quiet alley I saw this gentleman, possibly a scholar once, in deep concentration, maybe calculating the meagre takings at the end of the day. Still up at a late hour, illuminated by the naked light bulb, he seemed to embody so much that makes us human: determination, self-secrifice, hope. I didn't use the flash in order not to arouse him from his task. I remember thinking that at a very low shutter speed I was being most optimistic and I had to act quickly before the moment was lost. I am happy with the effect, helped along with some contrasting and highlighting of the scanned image.
