Sometimes a particular gallery in our Flickr pool catches our attention – like this intriguing and adorable photo set from user cmar55. When asked what the toy was, and what he was doing, cmar responded:
I don’t have any particular inspiration, aside from it just being a fun and memorable way for me to capture Shanghai. I also find the perspective unique and I like the thoughtfulness the character brings to the image and location.
The character himself is named “Billy Bronze” and was created by the graffiti artist Sam Flores in SF.
