Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement

Balloon Lady

Balloon Lady, Chongquing, China, Copyright Chris Gregory 2008

What would a celebration be without balloons? We found this balloon vendor near the edge of the square below the Great Hall of the People in Chongqing on China’s National Day.  Later in the day we came across another person also selling balloons at the entry to Old Chongquing, where the people of the second largest city in China crowded in the narrow lanes to experience how their city used to look.  I doubt that it was as well presented in the old days as it is today where this small remaining part of the old city is now used as a tourist attraction.
