Grabbing Dinner in Beijing

I had decided to eat out on the streets, since there seemed to be such a variety. The real reason might have been there was this guy with a giant vat of fresh unagi (eel) which happens to be my favorite. I bought enough to feed a small family and ate it while I marched around with my camera, looking for a good spot for the shot.

The second shot below is of a famous Chinese dancer warming up for the Olympic ceremonies by launching himself into the air, just beside the official flag.

  • Wow, that second shot is incredible Trey! Mega detail!

  • I loved the nightmarket in Beijing. Had some crispy scorpion, yummy!
    In Beijing there are no street vendors allowed, so the gov. created this night market which is surveillanced by autorities in a hygenic way.

    IMHO it’s a must for visitors
