Twenty four in Explore

After a bit of a dry spell, I just scored my 24th shot in Flickr's Explore lists, the 500 most interesting shots of the day. I did not post about the 23d incidentally, as I had already used that image in my imaginary albums game here. This image, which I entitled Shadowplay, dates back to my April visit to Shanghai. I shot it whilst waiting for my wife to finish negotiations with a qipao store owner - always good to have a camera with you. Given the subject, the choice for a black and white version was almost mandatory.
