Playing Tourist at China Gate
We thought it would be amusing to take the classic tourist photo with the lion at China Gate (which happens to be in our neighborhood), and Mabel thought it would be amusing to pretend to be terrified of the lion. Even in this less-than-crisp photo there's something about the angle of her head and the gesture of that left hand that telegraphs pretend fear rather than real fear, at least to me her mother. These days when ever walk by the lions she pauses to climb up to each one and give it a pat. Just to make sure they know this was all in good fun, I imagine.
