Xian is famous for its Grand Mosque & Muslim Quarter. I liked the high contrast in this daily life scene, & the 2 rickshaws. Muslims settled this area of Western China, centuries ago, when the Silk Road to the Middle East, was a major trading route.

A lively street scene well captured. Much to occupy the eye; I like the low point of view and the emphasis on the paving stones - they add much depth to the scene. Very good colours and clarity.

Wonderful daily life photo of a crowded street at Xian. It's good to see two women driving the rickshaws, I thought this was a men's work in China. Very good colors, POV and clarity.
Well done. TFS.

This is a good photo documentary!
Many interesting details, and I notice the fine colour contrast with all red elements and the greenery...
Good point of view and a fine composition!

The rickshaws and oriental people as well as the trade houses gave you a good opportunity to get such a picture. It is another world compared with mine. Very fascinating. Kind regards. Domingos

Hi Chris, your gallery is so varied and I'll never be tired of discovering your photos ! People in the streets, everywhere in the world, are always fascinating me, I don't remember which year I discovered Xi'an but there were not yet pedestrian alleys like this one (very elegant it seems), the light vehicles in the FG are also very interesting - and a novelty to me : a new version of rickshaws, driven by women : excellent ! ... And again, this air of optimism that I guess in many of your shots, great ! Very happy to be able to follow your various travels...

These are rickshaws mounted on scooters, unlike on motorbikes in tuk-tuks. A very good daily life image, with use of road as perspective. The Chinese red lanterns stand out. Good work!

Hi Chris ,
An interesting scene and I can see the mix of cultures. I like the good depth and the DOF allowed me to enjoy the scene even further. I am hoping to visit this place in the future. Well done!!
Regards and all the best.
