I saw this couple on the street, and the lighting on the umbrella was just too amazing to ignore.

What a wonderful shot to be so spontaneous. :]

I love the light designs on the umbrella
as well as the contrast and the couple's positions.

Yea, I speak some Chinese, though I've totally been losing it since the start of university - nobody to speak Chinese to, and too little time to study it
