The Apple in the Crystal Jar

I was in Shanghai this past December and I tried to get out every evening to see if I could find some cool places to photograph.  It was mostly a bust though. One day I took a taxi to the abandoned apocalyptic mess that was once the World Expo and I ended up walking for a couple of hours in the cold, dark and rainy streets before I called it a day and went back to my hotel to lick my wounds.  On my last night in Shanghai, I went back to the popular side of town where all the super trendy people go shopping and I saw this Apple store. 

As I was looking for a good angle I noticed the security guy at the entrance to the store mad dogging me.  I gave him a goofy wave and smile and just kept taking pictures until he started to come over.  I waited until he was half way between me and the entrance to his lair before I picked up my tripod and pretend to walk away.  As soon as he tuned back, I set my tripod back down and waited for him to realized he had been bamboozled.  He made it all the way back to his post before he noticed me!  He had a look of shock as he saw me wave at him in naked defiance.  I leisurely finished taking my pictures and then walked into the same store he was guarding.  Hehe.
