Photographer's Note

This is just a quick snap-shot from somewhere in the centre of Kunming in the province of Yunnan in southern China in September 1986.

Maybe this boy had great ambitions to become yet another Chinese table tennis champion, but lacking a suitable table he had to use a wall for training. I don't remember if he noticed me or was too absorbed by the game to care.

Can you see the white ball? It's up there, near the top of the picture, slightly elongated.

Maybe he actually became a star player and toured the world. In that case his successful career is probably already behind him, since this photo was taken almost 30 years ago.

I have scanned this from a Kodachrome slide. Here is a larger version.

I can't provide any GPS-coordinates, since I don't remember where this was taken. In any case Kunming seems to have changed so much since 1986, so maybe this street doesn't even exist today.
