Greeters



Retired ladies entertaining tourists as they make their journey into Zhouzhang, a city 90 minutes drive from Shanghai.
I was told they were performing a folk dance traditional to that region.

This is really a bonus to see how things are done in another country. Good photojournalism

Now this is exactly what I love about the Asian culture. Everything they do has meaning and is based on ancient beliefs and traditions. They also from what I have observed take pride in their traditions, which is something I think we forget here in the states. Love these photos and the fact that you are capturing their rich culture on film.
