My third and final post in this series about the village square. This is Chong Chong playing with another infant of about the same age. I think this was the first time that they’d met. Chong Chong’s grandparents usually take him to the square during the week, with Shanshan and I taking him there on weekends and holidays.
It is an important part of the socialization that infants go through here. In addition, bonds are formed between the adults as well.
On a technical note, I would’ve preferred to do have this photograph in color. However, my iPhone 4 didn’t do a good job with the high level of contrast, and Chong Chong’s sleeves were really blown-out. I think going with black and white allowed me to salvage the picture a bit.
