Photographer's Note

I was traveling thru Yining, Yili, Xinjiang, China and while walking around town, I stumbled on a market. This Grandfather was sitting around talking with friends while babysitting his granddaughter. I loved watching him dote on her and they obviously loved hanging out together. When I asked if I could take their picture, he proudly beamed a big smile and pulled her up into his lap and posed.

In many of the ethnic cultures in China, it is expected that the grandparents will watch their grandchildren while the middle generation works to support the family.

(I wish I had had the knowledge at the time to increase DOF so that the non-smiling guy in the back was blurred out.)
