Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement

Silk Embroiderer

China has a long tradition of silk making, dyeing, and tapestry making.  Many fine exhibits can be found in museums around the world and up-market shops throughout Asia.  Then there is the tourist market,  Hardly a tourist goes to China without being exposed to a constant barrage of attempts to lure dollars from their wallets in special tourist silk shops, street markets and the gaggles of street vendors near any major attraction.

Such was the case on our journey from the airport at Yichang to the city which was escorted by China National Tourist Corporation guide and driver – first stop a silk embroidery demonstration and shop.
