Bamboo in wind

Bamboo, has no general meaning of traditional Chinese culture, bamboo evergreen symbolizes tenacious life. Bamboo sticks bend without folding, is soft in just the principle of life; exposed section of bamboo is a symbol of the ethical. Tall bamboo joy, integrity aloof, handsome personality Jolly also pursue Chinese literati. To shoot with a Chinese bamboo painting meant, I used double exposure. The first exposure of bamboo branches, bamboo leaves on the second exposure, the results obtained in the last camera like a painting on rice paper.
