taking stock

street stall old man counting stocks early morning at kuala lumpur

kuala lumpur, malaysia | 2012


after an early sunday morning visit to a local market in kuala lumpur, i walked out and was walking around the by-lanes to catch some more of the morning action where everyone is setting themselves up for the day. that’s where i saw this old man who was furiously counting away … taking stock of his baked sweet food – breads and pastries. he didn’t notice me till i got pretty close, and finally when he glanced at me before i could take away the camera and utter the first word he was back to his counting… he probably could see through that this one’s not buying anything and went back to his work immediately
