When we say that eyes are the reflection of the soul, this is really meaningful.
“We are arriving at Suzhou station”. Some people get off, some other get on. And my neighbor arrives.
– Hello, this is my seat.
– Hello, mine is just right there, do you mind if we trade ?
-Ok, no problem.
I had a very little doubt, but deep inside I knew it : I took a picture of this guy already. On a street photography session we had performed my friend and fellow photographer, almost two years ago.

I was working on my computer, finalizing pictures. Once done, I looked up the pictures from that street photography session. Here we are. I got the portrait of this man on the screen.
– Is that you?
He looks at the screen, and his reaction was interesting to observe. During this instant I could read :
“What ? Hey, but it’s me ! On somebody’s computer that I do not know ! Hum…. wait…”
*Rings a bell
-Yes, it’s me !
Finally he remembered me ! That was fun. Then we had a chat about projects, life and so on.
Triggering the calculation of probabilities…
What are the chances that I met this guy on the street two years ago ?
That I took a picture of him ?
That I met him that day, and we were on the same train, same car,
close seats ?!
Above all, in a country like China, populated by a billion and a half of people ?
