China. Spiderman on the Great Wall of China. 2006

First, I need to apologise for my lack of a ‘Photo of the Week’ last week. I know many of you stopped by expecting to see a new image. I was on assignment in a place that had no internet and was completely out of touch with the outside world for almost the whole week. I can’t reveal too much now but I promise to have an exciting new set of images (and maybe more) of my work from this place. If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you may already have an idea of where I have been.

In the meantime, here is a photo that I have wanted to post for some time now. This week’s ‘Photo of the Week’ was taken a few years ago on the Great Wall of China and depicts ‘Spiderman’ enjoying this world famous tourist attraction!

The image was taken during China’s national holidays which occur annually at the beginning of October. I couldn’t wait to show this photo as it is one of my favourites. It is somewhat random but I like this factor in the image and like the unexpected appearance of a very modern figure on one of mankind’s most recognisable and ancient structures.
