Not your usual tourists. They are guards in charge of the lowering of the flag at the Tian'anmen Square which usually draws a big crowd before the gates leading inside are opened to tourists.

Nice evening shot of an amusing situation...those Chinese PSB sometimes so menacing, others so awkward....
I would have liked to see you just a bit closer for this although that would have been a bit unnerving.

very unusual & very neatly executed lovely shot...
A very private moment between these guards!..
Thanks for sharing.
