Yangtze River Washday

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Susan Strom

Local man doing his laundry early in the morning along the edge of the river where the river boats dock. His washing machine consisted of a bar of soap, brush and a club of wood. He was insulted and angry at anyone taking his picture. I received some strong Chinese words right after taking this picture.

Location: Yangtze River, China
