Hand-painted signs are so vintage.
If you look carefully, you can see a woman washing her hair in the alley.
One of the numerous clothing boutiques along Jinxian Road.
The blurry, black blob in the foreground is actually a little girl playing catch with the boy in the middle of the road.

To reach Jinxian Road, take the subway to Shaanxi South Road metro station and walk north along Shaanxi South Road for approx. 10 min.
