Awesome Earth People
Big Cities and Little 'uns

Tianjin has lots of great locations, but I was a bit fixated on this one for obvious reasons. I forgot this lady's name, but she's not a model I hired or anything. I never hire models and just kind of wait for things to organically happen. I saw her walking down the stairs, so I quickly slid into place to take a quick vertical photo. After I took it, she started to giggle, and we exchanged WeChat (the popular service there) info so I could send her a copy of the pic.

We visited the Song Museum north of Beijing one day. It's a very contemporary and modern museum with clean white lines and elegant shapes. Inside the museum was the usual fair, but the outside of the museum was teeming with a hoard of girls taking photos of one another. Groups of two or three would all spend hours just taking photos outside the museum of one another in different poses. They were all stylishly dressed and quite avant-garde. Of course, I got into the fun and started taking photos of the whole scene as well, then sharing the photos back with them on WeChat (the most popular social network there).
