I was walking out of Tiananmen East metro station and a local Chinese man holding on to his child in his hand walking next to me. He started speaking to me in a certain dialect which I’m sure is not Mandarin and I was sure he wasn’t a local Beijinger. I thought he would ask me for directions in the city like a few of the other non-Beijinger Chinese did a day earlier. Then he pointed to the huge ass camera which was slinged on my neck and did a gesture for taking a photograph. He then pointed to his little child which was probably about 3 years old donned in winter clothing. I got the point there that he wanted me to snap a photo of his child. As we walked out of the tunnel, the man still spoke to me in his dialect. I didn’t understood a word he was talking but I sure made him happy as he smiled widely while waving goodbye to me.
The metro was too crowded and too busy that I didn’t have much time to stop and take photo. So I couldn’t stop for long along the tunnel to adjust the manual settings of the camera. Well, here goes the picture of the boy after editing it in black and white.
