Qu Yuan Statue, Rice Dumpling Festival

Qu Yuan is an ancient Chinese hero, linked to the Rice Dumpling Festival. Long story ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duanwu_Festival ).

This is a temporary statue, only set up for the duration of the festival, for tourists. It's near the Albert Complex and Fu Lu Shou Complex. That's a HDB (government public housing) apartment block in the background. They're everywhere.

  • At 35mm, f4.8, ISO 400, 1/90 seconds

It might have been better to open up the aperture and blur out the background.
