Photographer's Note

Happy Easter to everyone - this was called Mirror Image but it suddenly struck me from the thumbnail that I was looking at a dark chocolate Easter Egg!

Chongqing has a remarkable investment in lights - I don't think I've been to a city which has gone to town to this degree both in terms of commercial advertising and in pure decorative and entertainment forms. This archway and the light structure beyond fronts onto the river, beyond which, the central area of the city glows in the clear night's raining lightly and for the first time we see things clearly without a haze. The river front here is awash with these structures - like Blackpool Illuminations. Behind me are some of the wonderful high quality restuarants this city has to's pretty impressive........China's middle class has emerged in aspirations to be part of it, will affect the majority of people who are not part of it, will change Chinese society - it is one of the great questions of the age.
