    Li Ting

In Taiwan, there are hundreds of temple fair activities in a year. Generally, these activities are including religious carnival and parade formation. And, some of them have Ba Jia Jiang and the ritual of Chung Kwei. Those are important artistic troupes that also brings the climax in the local worship festivals. When they show up in the worship parade, their costume, makeup, and formation always make people impressive. The most impressive show is Ba Jia Jiang or Chung Kwei with fireworks as a background together when a temple fair come to the end.

I am a self-taught Taiwanese photographer and an amateur photographer for street, landscape, culture, and birds/wildlife/nature categories.
