Photographer's Note

I’ve never actually been to China, but from what I’ve seen of pictures, t.v., movies, and walking the streets of NYC’s Chinatown district, I would imagine this is probably a reasonable facsimile. As I was standing on the opposite corner from this market watching the daily activity, it was the multitude of plastic orange sacks that caught my eye amidst this busy street scene.

There were so many varied sights, sounds and smells emanating from this area of Manhattan…at times, it really did feel as if I were in a foreign country. Visiting China for real, or simply strolling through this district, one thing remains certain…I can’t read most of the signs! :)

It’s a great experience for locals and tourists alike however, worth anyone’s time to wander around and take in the Asian/American fused atmosphere.


Thanks for stopping by.
