I love looking at photos from different countries as well as how different people choose to portray what they see. Very interesting series here in many ways. The photos are great and the framing and how you chose to show the countryside is very nice as well.

2 weeks pass very quickly, was given a book called Understanding Exposure as a gift and have been reading a bit. its a slow process but at least its forwards.
Returned to the site where I'd seen a golf course under construction a year or so ago and the transformation was incredible. It was a nice day too!
Performances at school again this week to encourage the children to read more, any excuse for dressing up and singing! They love it.
Thanks for looking in and commenting, as always, encouragement and kind words are received with a good feeling.

These are beautiful, wonderful colours and the children certainly do seem very happy dressing up and performing. Thanks for sharing them. I will try to look back at the rest of your album.

Lovely scenic shots Horace.
Nice captures of the happy and nicely dressed children.

The kids are great. Well done on the lighting, exposure and colors. The golf course is different looking but neat as well. Can't tell if there was a blue sky or smog in it.

What a nightmare not being able to access photocamel for a few days!
The weekend before last i returned to DaXu for a ride out and to get some strawberries and of course take a few pics.
This particular street is a favourite of mine and would love to have had better weather but what can you do? If the weather had been better then there would have been so many more people milling about.
First there is the bridge connecting my favourite street to the main town.
A chap up a ladder doing a little maintenance work to his roof. He was probably in his 80's and was chatting away to people as they walked passed. Of course, everyone knows everyone.
Stopped here for a beer and a snack. The owner was sat finishing a tapestry on which she'd spent the last year working on, we arrived on her last day of stitching and for some reason i never considered taking a picture of it, although it was enormous and i don't know how i would have managed it anyway. There were smaller ones on the walls of her small shop/restaurant. I liked the menu written in old style traditional Chinese and the wooden doors too.
Looking down the street past all the front doors. Most of the doors were open, behind which were mainly large HDTV screens showing Chinese soaps with little old ladies and/or young children watching. Apart from the TV's, furnishings were basic, functional and well made. There were no pictures taken and only quick glances from me as I walked passed, these were peoples homes after all.
A cool front door! Typical of most on this street.
This small alley leads down to the river from the street and really is as dark and damp as it appears. I liked it though and immediately thought of the "alley thread" from last month.
Appreciate the comments as always, it's pleasing to know that others share my enjoyment. I hope that the pictures from DaXu give you a feel of the place as that was my challenge.
The weather in Guilin has turned wet, very very wet, fingers crossed for blue skies when it passes.
Well done to those that fixed whatever glitch that kept us from our photocamel fix!

The Camel was out of operation for about three days this week but the issues appear to have been addressed.
These are very interesting images from your locale Horace,
Thanks for sharing.

Time to update this thread mate. I finally got about to register and look through your posts here. It's great to see how you improved over time. I wish I'd done something like this when I started, I'm sure that the support from the guys here means a lot. Keep it up!

Stan
