Photographer's Note

Inspired by Lisan's (Tongapup) photo here, to which I commented that I'm always moved by older people walking hand in hand or not afraid to show their love, I make a (temporarily) jump to my Chinese pictures.

We arrived in Beijing on the day of the 55th birthday of the Republic, and EVERY Chinese person had a week's holiday. No need to say it was very, very busy everywhere. Now I like to shoot sometimes buildings without people, but that was totally impossible. However, on the premises of the Summer palace, there were places where it was not that busy, once you got a bit further away. That's where I spotted this old couple, he was helping her up the steep stairs by keeping her by her arm, and once arrived at the temple, they went on walking hand in hand.

I loved looking at them and stayed behind them for a while. I will upload the other picture that I took as a workshop, that one is just as lovely. Well that is, at least in my opinion.
