I can't get over that first image. So beautiful- I'd definitely frame it and put it in my living room.

Brandi said...

I love the use of lighting in these photos!!

Claire Kiefer said...

I like these photos so much more than I like actual Chinatown. Especially the mah jong photo. Wait, is that mah jong?

Lily Riani said...

2nd last pic - mah jong game. after spending 15yrs in chinese school; i failed to learn & understand that game. tai ti was the further i can comprehend. ahhahah.... but love watching people playing it tho.

woah, these photos are great! i wonder which chinatown this is. i used to work right at the edge of chinatown in san francisco, which is what these reminded me of.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Love these photos. I wish I had just an OUNCE of her talent. Sigh. :)

Kitty Stampede said...

the second photo reminds me of bangkok...specifically in the hangover 2.

i like the milk sign asian-esque lettering. the bong one too.

these are fascinating! i'd never think to take random shots of chinatown. next time i'm in the SF's chinatown, i might be more inclined to do so.

ps. if you're the weirdo in the corner singing to herself, then i'm the bitch in the other corner laughing my ass off!

Caroline said...

WOW...the mood she captures! So awesome!

The picture of fruit is fantastic. I feel like there is something magical in that image. It's funny that all these images have a stillness and quiet that I didn't experience in China, but definitely have felt in various Chinatowns.

I don't know why, but I find these images kind of depressing. I just get an overwhelming feeling of loneliness when I look at them.
