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.
In December I photographed the 1 week old Shenzhen Terminal 3 arrivals hall because I had flown into the airport from Ningbo. Last week I departed from the airport so I could photograph the departures hall (and get to Ningbo). It was more spectacular than the arrivals areas because of the expansive perforated ceiling.
This hasn’t been a great trip for street photos because of the weather and a busy schedule. I got out for a few hours in Yangjiang to take these shots.
Another evening killing time taking photos in the airport before I fly home. The combination of epic architecture, interesting people and “golden hour” lighting produced some interesting images.
Just killing some time at the Hong Kong airport before I leave. There are always some interesting shots at my favorite airport in the world.
More photos from wandering around the Pudong area of Shanghai. While in Paris people photograph the Eiffel Tower. In Shanghai you photograph the TV Tower. I like to photograph architecture in black and white because it reminds me of the opening sequence of Woody Allen’s movie “Manhattan” – complete with Gershwin music.
I went to Zhujiajiao today. It’s a water town on the outskirts of Shanghai that was established about 1,700 years ago. It’s a tourist village these days, full of restaurants & shops. It was nice to escape the big city…
Shanghai is huge. REALLY huge (23 million people). It’s ten times the size of Chicago. And this week is was hot. REALLY hot. There were lots of umbrellas on the streets to make-your-own-shade.
I just spent a couple days in Nanjing, which is a few hours west of Shanghai. It was my first trip there. I always seem to visit the same manufacturing hubs in China and it was nice to go somewhere new.
Yangjiang a beautiful city on the southern coast of China, just below Macau. This place is the “knife capital of the world”. I’m here working on some product development projects with the knife factories, but have found time to wander the back streets to take some shots.
Flying in China in the spring is not unlike flying through Chicago O’Hare at the same time of year. You probably don’t want to travel in the late afternoon or evening unless you enjoy (long) delays because of storms.
So, I just returned from an adventure that began yesterday when I accidentally arrived at the Shenzhen airport without my passport in my computer case. Trouble ensued.
