The Riches Of China

China was the subject of another event at the Horticulture Building for the Ottawa Welcomes The World series. It already started outside the building, where photographs from China were on display, among other items.

The photography also could be found indoors.

Items of traditional formal attire were also present, and there were numerous panels about the next world expo, which is to be held in China.

These photographs caught my eye too. 3D photographs gave the illusion of movement to the naked eye, and a sharp look in the finished shot.

Near the stage, this floral arrangement was standing.

A hostess announced a performance by dancers in traditional attire.


  1. A fun way to travel without leaving home.

    1. It's true!
      I love traveling vicariously, but this is just as good.

  2. The riches of China could take up the whole city of Ottawa! China is so big and diverse and I don't think many in this part of the world can begin to grasp what it's all about. But China is also very important and that's why this kind of showcase is so important. We need to know more. I've seen some photos of places in China just recently that I could hardly believe because they showed a country that has moved ahead so fast and created some wonderful places and structures. It's all quite fascinating as is this showcase!

  3. A wonderful opportunity for China to showcase its cultural heritage.

  4. There is so much to learn about each country! Chinese likes red!

  5. China is promoting itsselve very nice.

    @Catalyst: it's a good combination.

    @Bill: it certainly was!

    @Jan: you're welcome!

  21. Their colors for textiles for formal wear have always been so vibrant. I wondered what it was like for them when they had such dull colors under Mao. That does seem to have changed.
