13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Pandas in the Wild

This was when Paulo Grangeon came to Hong Kong with his 1600 paper mache pandas. The Chinese having a love for pandas, flocked to the attraction. I just thought it was a funny image, pandas - not in the wild but in the concrete jungle of Hong Kong, and all these people coming to take photos of them as if they are witnessing them in the wild.
