Talking Project Hungry Ghost 2012

When I was a little kid, I always explore the annual Hungry Ghost Festival in my neighborhood. My mom had forbidden me to go (many times). According to her "the wandering ghost of the dead, including the vengeful spirits will take their revenge, and may cause trouble during the unholy month". The endless stories of Yuān Guǐ (冤鬼): the ghost of someone who has died a wrongful death (they roam the world of the living, depressed and restless, seeking to have their grievances redressed) - it FAILED to scare me. Being an inquisitive child, I'm always curious about the “why” behind everything.

I've never taken pictures of Hungry Ghost Festival. My instinct tell me that it is NOT RIGHT to barge into the festival and start snapping away. At first I was a bit hesitant, but what the heck....journalist were covering the annual event and the festival was in jovial mood. Who cares?
