dad's summer look

One summer afternoon, my dad is leaning on the windowsill at home. He is 60 years old. He is used to just wear a pair of pants at home every summer, just like every Shanghainese man in his generation. The fan in his hand was made of Palmetto - an old fan - this kind of fan was very popular in china back in the old days. I like the rim light on my dad and the furniture - it created a cozy, nostalgic feeling. Shanghai is not all about being modern and international, it has its local, traditional stuff too.
