This man was selling cricket cages in the Kunming market. I stumbled across him as I investigated the sound coming from his wicker cages. He is crouched in the resting pose which many Chinese use and reminded me a bit of a cricket ready to spring. Crickets in a cage are an old Chinese tradition. When he stood up he slung a pole across his back to which all of the cages were attached and strode off through the market. The writing behind him is a Chinese poem about crickets.
