Photographer's Note

I love to experiment new possibility in photography as and when the chances permit. This is the technique I call 'walk and shoot' from the hip using slower than usual shutter speeds to create the motion effect.

Shutter was released smoothly while moving into the flow of the hectic crowd to achieve to the desired goal - the slightly less sharpness by blurring all stationary and dynamic objects.

Experimentation can really bring some surprises....

Shooting Location:
Beiyuamen Street, the famous location in the heartbeat of Muslim old quarter within the ancient walled city of Xian. For centuries the quarter is the magnet for the Muslim community which today numbers around fifty thousand and it's where one of the oldest mosque in the world is located, The Grand Mosque of Xian built in 742 AD during the Tang Dynasty.

The vibrant Beiyuamen, the street that runs north from the 'Drum Tower' gate is worth browsing especially lively in the evening when restaurants are packed and sidewalks are full of food vendors, craft tables and souvenir sellers.
