Daily Photo – Adorable Chinese Girl

So, maybe the full title of this photo should be what I realized after I took the photo: “Adorable Chinese Girl OMG I Think She’s About To Pee On The Street”. But she didn’t. She was just in that position. And her pants are kinda funky. Or maybe those are leg-warmers or something. I don’t know… it’s all confusing. Her mom was right by her, sitting on a set and eating rice. She smiled at me, and was very excited when I was taking a photo. Or maybe she was laughing because she thought it was funny I was trying to take a photo while her daughter was about to go to the bathroom. I really can’t say!

But I did see lots of kids go to the bathroom in the street, on sidewalks, and this sort of thing. Not all the time, mind you, but they would just drop their business right there in the middle of a busy sidewalk.

    Cute kid – At first I thought that orange thing in the back was distracting, then realized it was point to the little girls jacket with a matching orange color. Interesting.

    They do have special trousers so that they just can sit like that when needed. She’s a beautiful little girl.

    Ah yes, the old trousers with a split down the middle allowing anyone to crouch and unload. So many kids in China have these.. Must be freezing in winter!

    Amigo, te acabo de conocer gracias a http://www.carolinadoug.com/index.html.

    Ya leí tu turotial de HDR en español, me acabo de aficionar a esta tecnica, ya estoy practicando aunque me hubiera gustado mas que para la practica usaras una foto a la luz del dia. He aprendido mucho con el ultimo paso en P. Shop.

    Esta foto de la niña es genial.

    Estaré por aquí vijilandote, ja ja ja…..

    Nothing like a person squating on the sidewalk to bring us back to earth after talking about clouds yesterday.

    Interesting photo though.

    Kinda lens did you use, your DoF seems to be super shallow, I mean, the building in the background is relatively close. Or was this blur PP’d this way?

    That’s really funny, I visited China in 1992 and I had completely forgotten about the children funky pants and the Peeing on the street, at the time thought it was really funny, the other really amusing thing was that if you pointed a camera on a child the parents would instantly whip out combs and make up so that their kid would be perfect in the picture

    Oh! Very cute and sweet Trey! Love the expression on her face. Reminds me of my own three years old child!

    Come see my photos on http://www.fredbeaupre.com and “Like” me on http://www.facebook.com/fredbeaupre if you will!

    That, is what we Asian Americans refer to as The Asian Squat. It’s just the way people sit when there’s no chair available and you don’t want to sit on the ground. Yes, you can relieve yourself when in that position, but most often it’s just sitting.

    hehe thanks all.

    Trevor – this is a 50 prime

    Hi Trey.
    The pictures you taken in Beijing are nice.
    Perhaps a journey to Shanghai would also be a smart move.
    Instead the culture in Beijing, Shanghai is the center of economy.
    And definitely more English speaking people in Shanghai, therefore you might not need to show the Ipad all the time.

  • Nero Zhang

    Oh by the way, you really should see the Shanghai Pudong Airport

  • Shane Porter

    I can’t tell if she is wearing them (she looks a little old) but most
    kids here in Shanghai don’t wear diapers. Instead they wear “split
    pants” that puts their junk on display and allows the to go to the
    bathroom freely when squatting.

    From my experience this picture is more the exception than the rule.
    Most times your thought “Oh my god she is about to pee” would be spot
    on.
