16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Chengdu Tea Time

I came across a mahjong parlor on a hot summer afternoon while exploring Chengdu. When I went to take a photo, a man having tea along a canal next to the parlor decided that he could help me make my photo more interesting. His friends cheered as he high kicked in the direction of my camera. This seemed to characterize the people of Sichuan well. Laid back with a good sense of humor.
