This picture was a kind of candid shot taken of a street Shao Kao vendor in Chengdu. Chinese barbeque food is just some of the best food in the world, and this guy does outstading barbequed tofu slices!

Shao Kao is a kind of help yourself ordeal - you throw everything in a basket and the guy cooking will split everything open, cover it in a spicy, seasoned oil and cook it on the high-temperature barbeque. Generally vendors come out at night, and people eat on small tables on the street and get beer from nearby shops.

Initially, a white guy producing a tripod caused a bit of a stir, but after a few minutes the guy got back to cooking and let me take some more natural looking shots of him and the scene.

This photo was taken from a tripod, manual exposure mode, Aperture F2.6 , Shutter 0.6 secs, ISO400, lens at 28mm(equivelent) in colour and converted to b/w in photoshop. Although the foods have a lovely colour, I wanted to make a busy scene slightly less busy hence the b/w conversion.
