Old Blue Eyes

I am not really into portraits, but every so often, I find someone who looks interesting enough for me to stop them, pay them some RMB and ask them to stand still for a tick so that I may capture their awesomeness.  I was hiking around the little mountain villages in the Longsheng rice terraces area of China, when I happened across this fine gentleman.  We did not share a common language so I proceeded to pantomime my intentions to take his picture.  He tilted his head and raised one bushy eyebrow in consideration before he accepted my offer.  I released my inner paparazzi on him for a few seconds and when he was done, he simply turned around and whent about his day as if nothing had happened.  I wonder what he thought of the whole experience?
