Shopkeeper in Beijing on Steps

I carry around two cameras so I can get things like this. I keep my main body affixed to my tripod with whatever lens fits the bill. This is either a the 14-24 or the 28-300. I keep my second camera with a prime -- either the 50 or 85 prime.

 

I was taking photos of the festive street at dusk, and I noticed this shopkeeper out taking a rest. I've always admired how people can rest in this position. I can only sit in that position for about 15 seconds before I scream in agony and my patellas pop off at a hyperspeed tangent.
