The Performance

“Small children sing a patriotic song for tourists during a school visit in Beijing, China.”

My wife and I traveled to Beijing in 1998 as part of a tourist group, and on the itinerary was a visit to a school. This charming group of small children was originally shot on my Leica M6 using Fuji Provia slide film, but on scanning recently I decided it looked better as a black and white image and converted it using Lightroom CC. The lens was a Summicron-M f2. I think it is quite delightful, and hope you agree.

About Gerry Walden

I am a stock photographer with far more years of experience than I would care to mention. Located in Southampton (UK) I am sandwiched between two national parks and my home town is a major seaport. I shoot mostly people related images, and travel when I can. I am resident photographer at a major concert venue in the town which means I get to shoot a variety of musicians.
