On and From the Xian Old City Walls : a group of three images made in the wonderful city of Xian, China just before spring a while ago. Cold but ‘cool’in the snow.
These images also illustrate the ‘work and fun’ dynamic in photography. It was cold and wet and the rest of the folk travelling with me stayed in the warm hotel. I tell myself ‘I’m here to see and photograph’ so pushed myself to go out. Then the fun started once I got up onto the ancient walls, almost alone, and found some really delightful images and some magical moments. You don’t know when you will hit the magic zone where good images are just there, but you will not find it in a warm bed!
