The Glowing Helmsman


After the Fou Ts'ong piano recital in Zhongshan Park I decided to take a stroll along Chang'an Avenue instead of rushing to the subway to get home.

And I stopped in front of the Forbidden City to take some night shots of Mao all lit up.

When I turned around to face the busy traffic and look towards Tiananmen Square, a bus passed right by me and I saw a reflection of Mao.

Luckily another bus came by and this is the picture I took.

well you need a tripod to get a better exposure. but this turned out to be a 'ghost' shot. it is ok for recording that particular moment.
