Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement

Talk Time

Yichange, China, Yangtze River, Copyright Chris Gregory 2008

Talk Time

This is one of my favorite images from our 2008 trip to China.  Its not because it is a technically great image, but that it represents part of how China had changed so much since our previous trip in 1987.

Here we have a modern girl riding her electric scooter and talking on her mobile phone.  In 1987 she would not have had either of these possessions, would probably have been riding a bicycle at best, and been wearing a green “Mao” uniform.  The bridge across the shipping canal beside the Gezhou Dam would not have been built, nor the dam itself which was a precursor to the Three Gorges Dam further up the Yangtze River.
