Chinese Muslim ‘shish-kebab’ girl: Kunming Food Festival 1992

While queuing for my ‘shish kebab’ I took several shots and she gave me the sweetest smile. A young street-toughie  reprimanded me for not asking her permission. I said ‘hey man, can’t you see she is happy being photographed!’  He scurried off as the crowd were starring at him disapprovingly.
