Rice: Tasty Joy and Golden Jasmine
Cilantro: A bit past its prime
I have been informed in the comments by Ng Tom of ‘That’s how I see the world’ that this is PARSLEY!
Firm Tomatoes and a much fresher

Also PARSLEY, and most likely forty cents a bunch!
How I wish I could read Chinese! Perhaps my friend in Hong Kong will be kind enough to send a translation of these signs!
Here are a few things I worked on today:
N.B.: On these last two, after converting them to black and white images, I applied the Artistic Filter ‘Plastic Wrap’. It’s the first time I found it to be usable and effective!

In 2002, I was working about four miles west, just off of Cermak Road, for a theatrical rigging company, and would come through Chinatown every evening I could. Things have changed a bit; the entrance to the “L” is now enclosed (thank you!) and upon exiting, there is this lovely, huge piece of glazed terra-cotta construction:
This is just a tease! I’ll be posting more of Chinatown over the next week, as I took over 85 shots in just under an hour (the other half hour I spent shopping in a great little store–you’ll be seeing that, too)!
