Shangri La Streetphotography

Shangri La Streetphotography

It is a different feeling to walk the streets of Shangri La – less touristy than Lijiang Old Town and people are actually living more in the open. More visible to people like me, wandering around to capture the daily life of people living in the city.

It feels like a mixture of a modernization of the surface, the appearance of the city, and old traditions and beautiful customs and costumes.

People wash their hair or their cloths in front of their stores or homes, kids running around or doing their homework. Families come together to cook or dry their mushrooms.

Overall I always felt welcomed by an open mind and a bright smile.
