Walking Across the Old Bridge

 

Your Favorite Cultural Clothes

What country/culture has your favorite clothes? Is it something exotic like ancient China, or modern like stylish India? Or maybe it’s something more tribal or more formal… I think most people tend to like stuff that is quite far away from where they live… and the further, the better and more exotic! But, I wondered what your favorite was…

Daily Photo – Walking Across the Old Bridge

While in China, one of the small towns I visited had several little low walking-bridges across the river. It was the sort of river that was too shallow for boats, but good for fishing and washing clothes.

This one was in a residential and commercial area. Many of the women wore colorful dresses and walked back and forth across… it all seemed very nice and peaceful so I grabbed an image.

    ahh…lovely Trey! I see clothes like this often and want them – they are so bright and colorful and seem like ‘vacation’ or something – but then I always think – ‘where will I wear that?’ and ultimately choose something black – but I never forget those colorful garmets!

    I’m not into clothes that much. I mean, I wear them of course, I’m not running around naked… :P

    Great details again on this one, Trey!

    A great image today!

    Hmm I can’t pick out one ethnic fashion that I like more than the other – good question! I do like traditional, ornate Indian garb, I also love both ends of the Japanese fashions scale from the traditional Kimono to the crazy, modern Harajuku stuff – I think I do appreciate anything that is a little bit different from the local norm although, when worn correctly under the correct circumstances, the traditional Scottish Kilt is a killer outfit!

    I haven’t been doing much photo taking/processing lately but I managed to squeeze one in last night which I thought I’d share with the troops – enjoy…..

    Ok, tough question. I live in Ukraine and in the summer (or just about anytime around here) mini-skirts and high heels abound. Much to my pleasure. But honestly, India has the most colorful and fun to look at. Legs are great eye-candy, but India is just great!!! Mexico runs a close second.

    Hello, Trey! I have been crazy about HDR with the help of ur StuckInCustom. I’m a Chinese Student. How can I get ur workshop course since I have no VISA ,blablabla… And when will be in Beijing again. I heard from one of my friends that u will come later this year.

    Trey, nice photo as always. My family and I enjoyed meeting you at Disney Hollywood Studios yesterday at the Tower of Terror. I knew you were in the park so when I saw this huge tripod and Nikon camera I knew it was you. We tried to meet up again at the Magic Kingdom, but the monorail broke down and we were stuck on the ferry boat. Life will go on! Hopefully someday the geek tour will be in my area so I may join.

    PS. I really enjoyed your recent HDR seminar.

    Beautiful Trey! I wonder how much you processed the dress to achieve those rich colors.

    Thank you very much!

    David – it was great to see you too…it was cool you came up to me there during the exit through the gift shop! Sorry you had a few other problems around the park! And thanks again for the kind words.

    I love the color of the traditional garb of many different cultures. Most is more colorful than our own. Perhaps it is because we come from more conservative Puritan roots and clothing was viewed as a utilitarian necessity. The colorful clothing of many of these cultures is often ceremonial. I love it.

    Great shot Trey – I like the composition and vibrance, capturing some of the background scene whilst amplifying the cultural dresses… excellent!

    I was struck by the traditional outfits worn by the women in the Peruvian Andes, Cusco area and Sacred Valley. So colorful and the same as they’ve worn for 100s of years. http://herviewphotography.zenfolio.com/travel-peru/slideshow
