Xinjiang by mauricioestrella Xinjiang by mauricioestrella
Xibe traditional food, from Xinjiang, in the north of China.

10pm. Dim lights. Tasty smell of roasted lamb skewers on a traditional setup.

I'm sitting on a small table waiting for my food and I see this scene. I took my camera out of the bag in hopes to capture the magic of that moment.

It happened. I did it.

In my mind, there is no best place to be at this moment in my life.

The cook might be thinking 'I'm just a cook'. But for me, he is part of beautiful experience.

This simply looks surreal. Not that I'm sentimental at the moment or anything, but this photograph actually makes me feel melancholic, in a good way of course. Like you, I've also left my hometown.

Is there any chance you could make this photograph a print, or even better, share a high resolution version so that I can professionally print and frame it? Thanks, and have a great one.

Is the most important part of photography. We may not understand, but you can save this and share.
