We started at the Jian-An temple. An excellent architectural mix of old and new.
It was noticeable that the Chinese people were not very willing to be photographed. This is in sharp contrast with the people from the Subcontinent (India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Pakistan) who would do everything to jump in front of the camera. Nevertheless this security guy did give me a quick smile!
Right after I made this picture the women closed the door. Surely would have liked to shoot some more.
These guys waiting for the traffic lights were a perfect subject. Even though I did shoot several frames, I did not manage to have all 3 guys looking towards the camera.
Throughout the walk I really wanted to give a China feel to each and every image I shot. I hope that this women preparing dumplings full-fills my vision.
Cars are now much more common in China than a few decennia ago, but bi and tri-cycles are still very much present wherever one looks.
Every time I go back to China, I realize how much the country has changed. An excellent example is this child surfing the net on a modern notebook. Looks like he knows where to get the free wifi...
