I tried a new twist on street photography and went out at night using a flash. Usually I’m less-than-obvious when I take photos out on the streets, but last night I turned on the flash and blasted people. It’s a little riskier than shooting from the hip, but I didn’t have any problems. The lighting effect is pretty stark and gritty.
I’m spending the Labor Day weekend (before the Mid-Autumn Festival weekend) in Qingxi. We celebrated my birthday on Saturday night and I relaxed the rest of the weekend. I’m mid-way through the trip now, leaving for Yangjiang tomorrow.
