Here's another shot of the old Muslim Quarter, in Xian, surely one of the places that attracted me most in the city. Situated within the walls, this is surely a place where you can stay for hours and leave with the feeling you have seen just a small part of it. It has just a small problem, there are usually too many people around, it has too much life and so it's not so easy to take photos.I took this one in a very busy street where it's possible to find many different kinds of ethnic food. This man was one of my favourite sellers, he was was selling something made with rice, seemed to me like a cake. Seemed it is very popular there because he was selling a lot. What really caught my eye was he way he was cutting it in slices.I would prefer it without that moto behind but there was no way to exclude it.

o petisco que o homem vende é bem exótico.
A foto ficou bem composta mostrando bem claramente a vida diária chinesa.

A very interesting picture, and I like the expression and detail on this mans face. A very hard life I would think. The colors are excellent. TFS and have a good day!

Bela captura dessa cena de rua chinesa. Deu vontade de provar a comida, confesso que sou viciado nesses lanches de rua.

há um interessante contraste para além daquele que a foto proporciona na sua plasticidade.
Os tempo modernos e a tecnologia com as práticas tradicionais e mundanas deste povo e terra que sempre nos fascinou.

if this is popular as you wrote where are the customers? Or just a good break for your capture? This is sometimes luck.
The motorbike behind him is a bit confusing for me because of the similar colour.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

The cake he selling look's delicious, All that's on the photo is just part of the scenery and the way of life there. Motocycle is the main transportation now aday in that part of the world. Used to be bycicle, wouldn't that be nice, less polution in the air, the air quality in Asia is so bad, especailly in smaller but up and comming countries. Great image with depict a great daily life scene. Thanks Ana.

Interesting composition to show a hawker selling local food, good pov to include the simply cooking corner behind his little stall, nice to see his yellow cake have same color with the background motorbike, indeed not easy to make photos at a busy steet, thanks for sharing.

Muito interessante esta tomada, mostra os costumes locais. As partes amarelas da moto estão a combinar em cores com os petiscos ;-)
Você fala em etnias no seu texto... acabei de ver, na TV, a repetição da abertura das Olimpíadas na China, lá também falou-se das várias etnias da China - vivendo e aprendendo!

This place is a lovely one (I suppose you visited the mosque) and you captured its mood... A classical view about China streets but a pertinent one. Then...

realmente a moto estava atrapalhando, para cloná-la seria complicado. Gostei da vista que mostra um alimento estranho e o modo de vida local, algo que é ´pura viagem. Quem sabe se vc tivesse colocado apenas o homem e sua barraca em cores e o resto em B&P a moto perderia um pouco da sua força, se esconderia no meio do lugar comum sem aquele amarelo forte para arrastar os nossos olhares. de qualquer maneira é um belo trabalho, boa luz e pov

Hi Ana !!
funny thing.... you took the photo in 2008 and I am enjoying it now in 2013.
the photo has some intriguing elements, a Chinese seller with a Muslim hat, the brick on the street surface in front of the wheel,more cooking on the charcoal stove next to the blue water container..... and a few more !!!
Despite the difficulties you got a perfect shot..... I like it a lot.
and now..... is time to wish you and your family a very happy X`mas and N Year.
