    Even at an early age, Uyghur girls already wear the low squarish hats thats typical of their custom. When they grow a little older, they start wearing the Tudung, because they are Muslims. This little girl was in the Urumqi market and was quite startled when I raised that big white Canon and took aim at her eyes. In Xinjiang Uyghur itself, you will see the true Uyghur. They dont usually wear the type of colourful dresses like those worn by the dancers that came to Malaysia. Ordinary Uyghurs are.....well...... ordinary. Down here I am posting a few pictures of ordinary Uyghurs in Urumqi, the capital of the Autonomous Region of Xinjiang Uyghur in China. Some of them have really interesting faces, and I also saw many really beautiful women .........

    This old Uyghur man was quite friendly, and seemed not to mind being photographed. Talking to some Uyghurs through our interpreter, I got the impression that many of them were not too pleased with the influx of the Eastern Hans into Xinjiang Uyghur. There is a history of seperatism in Xinjiang Uyghur even though the province is an autonomous unit within China. It is rich in mineral resources and petroleum and Beijing is strategically trying to blunt any seperatist inclinations by improving infrastructure such as roads and rail facilities, just as they are doing in the other Xinjiang, which is Tibet. Han migration is subtly encouraged by Beijing to dilute the Uyghur majority. Urumqi is about 4000 km from Beijing, and many commercial and government departments work to Beijing time, which is about 4 hours ahead from Urumqi time. Who wouldnt be annoyed at having to go to work at the unearthly time of 5 am......

    And here is an ordinary Uyghur mother and child. That headscarf that she is wearing is an indication that she is a Muslim..

    Below is an Urumqi man. Quite unlike those handsome dancers with six-packs in their midriff. Urumqi is home to about 11 of China's approximately 55 minority groups. In Urumqi you can find Uyghurs, Kazaks, Kirgiz, Mongolians, Xibe, Huis, Hans and others. You can roughly tell which are the Hans as they have a quite distinct Chinese look, and even a Mongolian, but I can't distinguish between an Uyghur and the others.

    Another "real" Urumqi man at the bazaar of Urumqi. They may look very stern, but generally they are very friendly. If you are a Muslim, giving an Uyghur the traditional Muslim greeting of As-Salaam-Mu-alai-kum will quickly bring a broad smile, and a reciprocal Mu-alai-kum-salaam.... Suddenly too, prices quoted for goods being sold will come down from the usual levels charged to Gwai-loh tourists....

    She appeared to be a helper at a Roast Lamb stall in Urumqi Grand Bazaar. The lamb was delicious and that was the reason I went back for more, not her... heh, heh, heh......

    And I saw this Angel in a street of Urumqi. I thought she was really pretty.....

    In case you are thinking of making mischief in Urumqi, the eyes of the Chinese Gendarme are always nearby....

    I'm a sucker for prety women. I just cannot resist pointing the big Canon at them if I spot them on the streets. This was a pretty woman in Urumqi Bazaar. I think she was a helper in one of the food stalls serving roast lamb.

    He's a hat seller, and hats are helpful in protecting your crowns from the harsh sun over Urumqi. So the plastic nose, moustache and spectacles is a good way to attract attention. Very clever.....

    Incidentally, all these pictures from Urumqi were shot with the EF 70-200 f/2.8L on my 1DsM2, at the Xinjiang International Grand Bazaar, which is the home of the Dance Troupe that came to perform in Malaysia. There is a huge open air theatre here where they perform at dinner time. Dinner is of course roast lamb done in several ways. The iDsM2 is a huge combo to carry around and its very conspicuous in the streets but I like the results. With its reach, you can shoot people from a comfortable distance. I usually just point the bazooka at my targets on AE focus, wait, and hit the shutter when they notice me.....

    This is a bit out of topic but Majdi, if you really like to eat real lamb in its many forms, apart from Urumqi and Xinjiang Uyghur, the other exquisite lamb roasts are to be found in the open air night markets of Marrakesh, Fez and Casablanca in Morroco. Take advantage of your client's special offer of cheap tickets and fly out either to Morroco or Argentina

    My most recently sampled lamb delights was in South America. Here are two OT pictures from Argentina to make your digestive and reproductive juices drool......

    heh, heh, heh.......

    Ladies.....

    Its safe to be with Majdi, alias red406.
    He's just passed my Rorschah Test to detect potential sex offenders.
    Anyone who'd mistake the obvious for a harmless belly button is obviously safe to be with - though not so safe if you've got a whole roast lamb to share.....

    Or is he simply pretending.......they say a gentleman is simply a very patient wolf.....

    Finally, I'm seeing a thread that is worth spending my time. Talking about photos and photography rather than pages of gears & etc.

    Thank you Tuan Hj DA for sharing this with us, love the whole series.

    God Bless.
