Daily Photo – Random Sighting in Beijing

I was walking around the arts district in Beijing and saw this cute girl posing up against a wall for her friend. After I was sneaky and took this photo, she looked over and gave me an even bigger smile! hehe… I notice sometimes that girls over there take a lot of photos of each other and act silly. And then, whenever I swoop in and take a picture, they get even sillier. It’s a very strange phenomenon but it’s always fun.

    So true,they even grab hold of you then ask there friends to photograph the two of you together. This came about from early years when Communist party leaders ran the villages they would use the photo as favour from the CPL to try and get favours from you with up grading the village . She has a lovely smile and a nice teeth well captured.

    Hi Casper! That will be a great trip! I have always wanted to see Banff – it’s supposed to be lovely – not sure if you will be close to Victoria Island – my mom and brother went and said it’s lovely! 🙂

    I absolutely love this photo!!, the story it tells is charming and the girl is adorable. I love it when you post photos of the human side of your travels. They inspire me to go there even more that the landscapes.

  • Trey, love your work man. You’ve inspired mine. Would love your thoughts: http://www.eyeandpen.com
