When you go to meet your girlfriend's Family and her Dad looks like this.

So my girlfriend and I arrived in Shenzhen on the 4th of February 2016. After a forty-five minute taxi ride and eight flights of stairs with our suitcases (containing our overweight lives) we were in her brother's apartment and I was having dumpling with her dad. So here I am an American, with very limited chinese, eating with my girlfriend's father, a traditional man and a spendthrift.
Thankfully he seems to have taken a liking to me (especially after I lost some change to him playing cards) and has even taken my photo to show his friends. I've returned the favor of course and have captured several Images of him which I really enjoy. He has very soulful eyes. Every time he is in the room I want to take his photo. Can you blame me?

I shot this on my Em5 Mark II with a speedboosted Canon FL 85mm F1.8 that is 3 times my age. This was wide open at f1.2 (after speedboosting). I cross processed it in lightroom and liked both the color and b&w versions. I'll be posting up a full review of this lens eventually. Leave a comment below about which version you like more.

  1. I like the black and white photo. It seems to be more nostalgic.
