This was my third trip to Beijing. Each time I see the same sights, so this time I was prepared to get some decent photos because I’ve already done the scouting.
It was blazing hot in Yangjiang this July. I was only able to get out for street photos a couple times because it was raining so much and my schedule was nuts. Heat + rain = humidity. Not great for lenses sitting in an overly air conditioned hotel room. I had to preheat my camera before shooting.
I’m pretty sure my design associate and I were the cause of a beer shortage in Ningbo in late June. Sorry about that city of Ningbo. Work hard – play hard.
I went to Qingxi to celebrate the fourth of July with a group of expat friends. I also made my usual tour of the town for street photos. It never disappoints.
I made a few quick stops in Shekou in between trips to Yangjiang, Ningbo and Qingxi. Lots of cities on this trip.
We ditched-out of Yangjiang for an afternoon in Zhapo on the South China Sea. A day at the beach is very different in China compared to the US.
I had the opportunity to tour a factory that was a little different from the usual factories I visit. A friend of mine has a friend that owns an “adult toy” factory near Ningbo. I’ve always been curious about the manufacturing processes used, as well as the business model. It was absolutely fascinating.
