The banks of the Yodo river are a great spot to find willing subjects, it seems. Although I was later denied by a sheng player, my first attempt with this man and his dog, Taro, proved fruitful. I get more success asking directly for pictures than first striking a conversation. Although the man isn't facing me, his dog is, and I like the relationship between the two. It dawned on me later that I should have crouched a little for the picture, I think. Orange filter B/W conversation with some added blacks.
