Weekly Photo Challenge: Oppression

I took this pic of an elderly Chinese woman at street fair in San Francisco’s Chinatown. As I look at her somewhat pensive face, I cannot help but imagine her backstory. Perhaps governmental or religious oppression forced her to leave her native China at a young age, to a place that hopefully offered a better tomorrow. Perhaps she’s also thinking of the relatives and friends she left behind, long dead and buried in a place she will never again call home.
