This photo was taken 12-6-07 in Wuxi, China. The Grand Canal has 2,400 years of history. We were able to experience the unique cultures while on a small vessel. I saw daily life of the local residents (working, walking, clothes hanging outside to dry and a lot more). This picture shows local residents walking across the canal bridge to and from their home. To me this ancient bridge is beautiful and I like their colorful red décor lanterns outside their residence. The man on top of the bridge wearing red clothes ties it into the red lanterns. I didn’t crop out the home on the right because the bridge would have looked goofy.
I was fortunate this shot was not very smoggy, as Shanghai and up to 4 hours away the smog was like pea soup fog, yet it was still an overcast day because of smog.
My back re: spinal fusion is getting worse, so this photo was taken with my Point N’ Shoot Sony camera. 72 DPI, 1/250 @ f/6.3, speed 125, length 10.2 mm. Removed electric poles and wires.
I hope you will enjoy it. All comments are welcome.
Take care, Bonnie
