I’ve always found it interesting to visit different places and meet new people. Once a conversation starts and I learn something of substance about a person or a place, I try to reflect on my initial impressions and were they right or wrong.
This piece is a continuation in the series of looking beyond the obvious. Sometimes, it can be quite difficult to see beyond walls and barriers, only catching a glimpse of reality. What to trust? Were my first impressions positive or negative? Were they accurate? It really depends on what is permitted to be seen.
I found it interesting to be in China and treated as a novelty. Many times there was a the constant stream of people wanting photographs with me, especially while using chopsticks while I eat (not the most flattering of photos I’m sure) and at times it was ‘too much’.
I was simply enjoying the sights, sounds and mysteries. I am more that what a stranger simply sees on the surface. We all are!
