The People of the Land

Prayer Banners
Northern Sichuan is home to various Tibetan tribes, and throughout the countryside, one will find these colorful vertical banners mounted on poles or hanging in square pieces on horizontal lines, each color representing a specific prayer request to the Tibetan gods. A riot of vertical colors that calls to be photographed.

Sunning Ourselves
Two friendly locals having a chin-wag while sunning themselves in the afternoon. "Young lady, remember to send us our photo, yah?"

Weaver Maidens Tribal Vendor
Left: A group of elderly basket weavers in a rivertown in Chengdu. A lifetime of weaving, could these 'weaver maidens' still be waiting for their 'herdsmen Niu Lang'? Nahhh - just a cheeky take on this old Chinese myth.
Right: A tribal vendor, cool and collected, as she surveys the busload of approaching Singapore tourists. Little did she realize that her negotiating skills would soon be put to monumental test and her patience tried not once, not twice ... omigosh, she has finally met her match in the ultimate Singaporean shopper and price haggler!

Peek-a-boo Princess My Day will Come
Left: "Is posing in front of a camera really that fun?", the pink Peek-a-boo Princess wonders silently.
Right: Coast clear, it's safe to step out in the open. "When will someone take my picture, too?"
