Photographer's Note

Street life is always my hot favourite wherever I go on shooting escapade and here is a shot taken in the late afternoon in Kunming charming old quarter - one of the most overcrowded and chaotic places in Yunnan. It was the lively red within this wall that caught my attention and visibly a photogenic spot imho, with lots of photo possibilities. Spending some time at the road side within the frenzied burst of human activity was quite a joyful experience too.

In fact I enjoyed every moment of it just waiting patiently to pick the most appropriate candidate to enter the viewfinder. I thought she was just the right kind of subject i was hoping for after much of waiting and I guessed was fortunate that she paused momentarily, engaged in a prolonged eyes right towards the catchy message which read; " Meet in the old street, Enjoy the romance in Kunming "

Quick shot of several frames followed thereafter, unsure as to how those words really meant to her but there must be something in her mind which I couldn't read. However, she certainly possessed a certain appeal that I found enchanting and I fully treasured those brief 'private' moments together before she continued her unknown journey diligently carrying her wares on the bamboo pole in search of buyers......

P/S; The old quarter, the heart beat of the city centre was then undergoing an extensive urban redevelopment programme, thus today this definitely appears so different and more flashy perhaps and the wall has probably long gone by now. Wish her life improves too in tandem with the current development.
