Boy and Grandfather at Tiananmen Square

In China

Well now I’m deep in China. I think it is my fourth or fifth time here. This time I’m going to visit many of the old haunts as well as try some new ones. As usual, if there are suggestions, let me know! 🙂

Daily Photo – Boy and Grandfather at Tiananmen Square

I was walking through Tiananmen on a white-out cloud day taking photos of people. I had on my earphones and was kind of drifting in and among the crowd. It’s a bit like being in a movie when you do this… anyway, I’m sure you’ve heard me mention it before, so I won’t go into details. It’s often a very nice way to make things timeless… to separate people and objects from their place and time.

These two were on the ground wrestling and having fun. I squatted about 15 feet away to take a photo, and they were most delighted!

  • Hi trey ,enjoy China.

Like the pic my tittle for this one is” Happiness is” Thanks for sharing.

  • Nice capture Trey 🙂

  • Wonderful fun looking shot Trey… great angle and composition too!
    Trey – I’ve been meaning to ask you about listening to music… this might sound strange however, whilst photographing – do you listen to music with both earphones or just one? I’m curious, as I always like to know about my surroundings and what’s going on in the background… thanks! 😉

  • Amazing photograph!

    It captures happiness in such an amazing way. No need for expensive gadgets, just simple fun 🙂

    Thank you Trey!!!!!!

  • Patrick Ahles

  • Carlos (CM Ortega)

    How simple the life can be sometimes…. great pic Trey!!

  • Sergio García

    I love the angle. Interesting.

  • Maybe this is a dumb question, but isn’t that a little girl, not a little boy? P.S. I love the picture!

  • Steve

    Most wonderful image. I just love the displayed here. Thanks for sharing.

  • Steve

    Oops was supposed to say just love the joy displayed here.

  • Great shot, Trey!

  • Hi Trey, I would really recommend going to Huashan Mountain, also known as Mt. Hua. There are some great places to shoot especially if you get there when the sun is rising.

    Enjoy and let me know if you end up going.

  • I recommend going to Zhouzhuang, Jiangsu Province. It is a beautiful and peaceful water town near Suzhou.

  • Big Matty

    Those smiles make the shot. Great job Trey.

  • Anna

    I would recommend to visit the tulou (earth buildings) of the hakka. They are in Yongding county, near Xiamen, in Fujian province. They are incredible buildings in a fantastic setting, and a unesco world heritage site, although relatively unknown yet. I would love to see how you capture them!

  • cool! where all are you visiting, Trey? I’m in Weifang right now in Shandong province. If you head this way or to Qindgao or something, let me know! 🙂

  • Gail in Montana

    Nice photo, Trey. No photo this morning, so I looked at this one I missed the other day. Hope you are safe there in China!!! Take care. 🙁

  • This i a great shot. Sometimes the simple things in life are the most enjoyable.

  • BB

    Oh man, can’t believe you were here and I didn’t see your post until today. Would have loved the chance to meet you and got some tips on how to shoot on pollution filled days. Love this photo. You have some fabulous shots of Beijing.
