Clash of Cultures

[REPOST]  At first I posted this image as an example of 'almost' a good image.  I was disappointed that the woman walking had her eyes closed.  However, I have been overwhelmed with the response to this image.  I recently posted this image on Flickr where it made Explore and now has almost 4,000 views, 100+ favorites and numerous comments.  Most have commented that the woman is looking away, almost with disdain, from the flashy advertisement yet, she carries a cell phone in her hand.  It's a story line I was looking for when I spotted the scene and quickly took the image.  So, I'm reposting this entry with the title I originally intended for the shot.

I caught this scene this afternoon which I would have titled 'Culture Clash' but I was disappointed that the woman's eyes were closed.  I even thought I had set the camera to shoot several frames per second to make sure I 'got the shot.'  However, it was not to be.  I like this spot and I often find interesting scenes like this quite often.  I just need to hang out here rather than walk by.
