Great rigoletto 2013-09-05 12:46

how nice of you to reconsider this marvellous photo! both kids are so charming, unaware of your camera. the warm light is in strange contrast with thick february clothes. i wonder what happened to the ghost markets after the olympics.

Hi Deniz

Regarding the Ghost market ... dirt market ... Panjayuan (all the same). I was living in Beijing from 2007-2011, and in all those years this market was going strong. It started in 1994. I was in China off and on from 1994-2001 and really loved this market then ... as real antique and unique items were available. However the market in 2011 was mostly fake stuff ... cool stuff, but not real antiques. It was 4 times the size in 2011 from 1994.

I have about 2500 photos of the ghost market of the past 19 years.
