Art in the Chaos

The streets of Qingxi may look ordinary, but once you begin wandering the markets and alleys you discover sights, sounds & smells you’ll never experience in the US.

If you look hard enough you can discover art in the chaos.

Street photography is like a scavenger hunt.  Sometimes you’re rewarded with the gift of an amazing image.  A small slice of the temporal continuum is captured by a few million pixels.  Someone’s ordinary life frozen in time for others to see.  They may not consider that particular moment precious, but when removed from the context of their everyday existence it can become special.  Perhaps art?

Sometimes I think poetry and rhythm live in the crowds I walk through.

Light and shadow becomes geometry.

Incongruities become the norm.

The mundane becomes magnificent.
