photoblog image Siesta

Siesta

Also known as Power Nap. A small nap is often encouraged in China; in fact, several Asians have a practice of taking a short slumber after lunch when the sun is supposed to be directly overhead. 

 

A person in uniform engaging in some quickly snatched siesta always makes for an amusing subject. Also an opportunity to stretch the muscles of the 200mm zoom lens.

Life sorted!
Ayush Basu: Indeed...
Gorgeous colours, Ayush!
Glad to hear you made this capture with your zoom lens; wouldn't have been good if he had woken up and had caught you in the act, hahah.
Ayush Basu: Yep, I was in no mood to meet a barrage of Mandarin followed by a fist or two grin
