Chinese Church Ladies
Category: Travel Portraits

While trekking in a remote part of China, I stayed for a night where the only lodging was available---a Catholic Church. Church service was the next day and these ladies were waiting to go inside. I motioned to take their picture and they nodded "yes". Using the camera feature in my Ipod Touch, I snapped away. The lady to the left never stopped smiling but the lady on the right showed a range of emotions that swung from surprise to laughter.
