Photo: Reality

I was looking for a more upbeat photo that captured a bit of that Spring Festival snap, crackle and pop. But when I saw this photo it grabbed my attention and reminded me of the excesses of the season (which this year has been pretty much a month-long Western-Chinese celebration hybrid). The Nanning-based photographer, Sun Suri, is (I believe) our first Chinese featured in this spot. Check out her photostream for a fantastic collection of street photography.

Every week(ish) we’ll feature an interesting, funny, beautiful or otherwise noteworthy photo here. If you have a photo you think might make a good Photo of the Week, throw it in the pool at the Lost Laowai flickr Group and if you’ve got a great caption for it, send that to us as well.


    • Powerful image, and yep, pretty much the exact same concept. I think the country generally has quite a long way to go in the compassion it shows its homeless/beggars, but I have definitely seen a change (though subtle) since I first arrived in China.
