Recalling a Sample of China Through My Camera's Lens

Recalling a Sample of China Through My Camera's Lens

This is a randomly chosen collection of photos taken during my 13 years in China.  Some you may have seen, and some you may not.

1.  No, they do not have double-double grande no-fat milk mocha coffee.

2.   But maybe what you want can be found here.

3.   I like the snake.

4.   Inside a cave in Guilin, where we boarded the boat to cruise down the Li River through the Karst Mountains.

5.   My wife's nephew, about the time of our wedding.  Now he's taller than me.

6.   A street in the Pudong area of old Shanghai.

10.   Being the antithesis of Henry Ford, you can have a waste-basket in any colour you want, except for black.

It always seems to be that way, doesn't it.   They always grow up so very fast.

Totally great Buzz.  I always like the night shots of city sky lines.

Neither TRUMP nor an EVANGELIST took these photos. The person who did is not LGBTQ nor an ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT, and  has never met AOC.  There!!!  All the necessary front page key words.

Beautiful photos, Buzz, and gives us an insight into some of the history and everyday life inside China. Thank you for sharing these wonderful pictures that help to remind us that the people of China are not that much different from us in how we enjoy the world we live in. (smile)

Tomorrow, October 1st, is National Day, one of the most important holidays of the year, and this year it marks the 70th anniversary of the present regime.  The primary school next door is having a special day for the kids with songs and demonstrations.  I took this photo from my smaller balcony, that overlooks the school from my 15th floor apartment:
