I was spending the afternoon in China Town in South Chicago with some friends, eating great food and looking in different shops.  It was quite the experience and you see some pretty amazing things.  China Town is a small culture shock but it is one of the great many things about Chicago overall.

As I was walking through a small row of shops I saw this man making noodles through the window of his shop.  I stopped and started snapping a few pictures, and then he noticed me.  Usually I would have stopped because I would prefer a more candid photo but he loved the fact that I was photographing him and started doing some amazing tricks while making his noodles.  It was nice to see that my picture taking was bringing him some joy.
