Perspectives from China

Thu Jun 8, 2006, 11:57 AM

Well China was an experience.  The diversity of what we saw was profound.  From the hazy industrial looking-and-almost apocalyptic streets of Beijing, to the soaring Buddhist mountain of Emai, the royal cuddly presence of Pandas, to the Bladerunner like vista of Shanghai.  We saw the chic and rich up and coming to the plain and simple peasants.  We saw the tourist attractions and the out of the way places.

China had it all, and we only tasted a small offering of her people and places.

I knew it was going to be a good trip when the moment we landed we had a tour guide who had us call him Happy, with a contagious smile and upbeat demeanour - not to mention a wealth of knowledge and good vibes - he set the bar for tour guides worldwide.  Someone give that man a seminar to teach.

I hope the pictures I brought show some of the diversity from various angles and perspectives. I hope Air China upgrades their plane interiors from JFK to Beijing for future travellers. I hope to be back in China at some point to explore the south and more of Shanghai.  I definitely recommend a trip to this country - with a good tour guide and group.

There were many times I wished I was on a photographer's tour because we spent a bit too much time on the bus which could have benefited from brief 10 minute stops for people to shoot pics.  There were amazing things that just flew by me on dirty bus windows that I ache to have captures - but count myself lucky enough to have at least seen.

never in my life has KFC looked and tasted so good - and that makes me a bit sad :D

I hope all your summers and artistic expressions are going well, to whoever actually reads this thing.

I hope to take advantage of the next few weeks and months to explore some conceptual and street stuff I have in mind.


p.s. gotta say i love the canon 30d, still learnin about dslr, but it is a blast.
