Old Man + Phone (Asian Squat) / 中國東北吉林市北山公園 Jilin Beishan Park, Dongbei, China / SML.20140727.7D.52174

An old man crouches on the floor and fiddles with his phone next to his bike. He wears sneakers with the word “Fashion” painted over them.

 

Crouching this way while hanging out appears to be the norm for the mainland Chinese people. I don’t know how they do it. When I try the same pose, my feet are never able to lie flat, and my back hurts like hell. Everywhere I go, I see people squatting like this when they hang out. Is it just me? Can you do that?!

 

Photographed with the Canon EOS 7D + Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM inside Beishan Park, Dongbei, China.
