Ting

She moves with a feminine grace that is rarely witnessed unless you find yourself in the Far East of the World. Her style is a mix between that of an Artist and a Philosopher. A thinker. She looks lost in her thoughts when I stop her. “What’s your name?” “Ting and it’s my absolute real name!” She is in a hurry so after the shots I walk with her for a brief interview. “I am going to college” she says “to write my research which I will never finish” Ting’s hometown is Shanghai and she decided to come to Edinburgh to study . “… to avoid life, you know!” she chuckles. “I am not gonna ask you how old you…” “I am 25!!!” she interrupts me, and then:”…sixteen, I AM SIXTEEN!!!!” she explodes into a cute and bubbly laughter. She doesn’t consider herself to be into fashion.”I just like to feel pretty and I dress according to my mood. Today I am happy.” “Tell me more about what you are wearing at the moment” “Well, I got the skirt from my mum. I think she bought it in the 80s when she was travelling in Europe. I got the pendant from my granmother and the earrings in a second hand shop … they were there, laying on the shelf, looking quite old so thought oh those would suit me!” she laughs again. We arrive at the end of the path that crosses the Meadows and we split in different directions. I am absolutly charmed.
