The Silent Street Trader

I took this photo while visiting Shanghai in February 2009. This street trader was sitting alone in silence with his few colourful toys and trinkets. I never saw anyone even pass by him, let alone stop to have a look at his toys. I couldn’t help but wonder how much he would sell in a day and how he manages to make a living.

  1. does one support family with such occupations?

  2. I have no idea. It's sad to think that he will probably make less in a day than what I spend on a coffee in Brisbane.
