Daily Photo - Selling Flowers in South China

It was a wet, humid, but cool night when I was walking through Feng Huang.  It was one of those nights where you are not sure if you want to wear a sweatshirt or just something light.  Wearing something heavy holds the threat of getting moist and making you more uncomfortable… wearing something light holds the threat of keeping you too cold.

I saw this lady selling flowers on the side of the road.

Boat in Feng Huang

 

Renting a House in the Caribbean

I’m looking to rent a house for my family for a few weeks in April.   Any suggestions?

Daily Photo – Boat in Feng Huang

It was a cool and calm afternoon in the ancient and impossible town of Feng Huang. It’s an old town, wreathed in many legends.

On the old river, you can occasionally see a boat passing here and there. The boatmen come in all shapes and sizes, but many wear the same hat and style. It is absolutely like a warp of time…

Still waters in the old town

Are you a boat person?

I think certain people are boat people… they really are into boats and often think about being in a boat. I’m not one of them… I wonder if it has to do with coming from an ancestry of seafarers or something.

Daily Photo – Still waters in the old town

Feng Huang in the morning is very peaceful. It might even be one of those towns were a lot of people sleep late, since I didn’t see many in the morning.

It was at this very spot that I bruised my ribs pretty bad when I fell down. It was one of those slick mud-covered concrete areas that doesn’t look like a slick mud-covered concrete area. But once you step on, it’s way too late to do anything about it.

There’s nothing that knocks the wind out of you more than falling flat on your torso with a Nikon D3S between your ribs and the ground. I still wince when I think about it!

Daily Photo – Adorable Chinese Girl

So, maybe the full title of this photo should be what I realized after I took the photo: “Adorable Chinese Girl OMG I Think She’s About To Pee On The Street”. But she didn’t. She was just in that position. And her pants are kinda funky. Or maybe those are leg-warmers or something. I don’t know… it’s all confusing. Her mom was right by her, sitting on a set and eating rice. She smiled at me, and was very excited when I was taking a photo. Or maybe she was laughing because she thought it was funny I was trying to take a photo while her daughter was about to go to the bathroom. I really can’t say!

But I did see lots of kids go to the bathroom in the street, on sidewalks, and this sort of thing. Not all the time, mind you, but they would just drop their business right there in the middle of a busy sidewalk.

Walking Across the Old Bridge

 

Your Favorite Cultural Clothes

What country/culture has your favorite clothes? Is it something exotic like ancient China, or modern like stylish India? Or maybe it’s something more tribal or more formal… I think most people tend to like stuff that is quite far away from where they live… and the further, the better and more exotic! But, I wondered what your favorite was…

Daily Photo – Walking Across the Old Bridge

While in China, one of the small towns I visited had several little low walking-bridges across the river. It was the sort of river that was too shallow for boats, but good for fishing and washing clothes.

This one was in a residential and commercial area. Many of the women wore colorful dresses and walked back and forth across… it all seemed very nice and peaceful so I grabbed an image.
