Photographer's Note

This photo has been taken in the Black Dragon Park in Lijiang. The Naxi women were standing on the bridge and teasing one small boy (which has not been included in the picture). I loved their outfits with all their colors.
There are 306,000 people in Lijiang. It is home to people of more than 20 minority ethnic groups, the bulk of whom are the Naxi. Each of these ethnic groups has a unique culture and history, which match into the beauty of the land, setting an example of a harmonious relationship between man and nature. China's languages are classified into four major linguistic families, and the Naxi belong to the Sino-Tibetan group. It is not uncommon to find those among the Naxi who can fluently speak two or three languages.
