Yangjiang Traffic & Streets

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.

The streets of Yangjiang are over-run by thousands of motorcycles and scooters.  Some larger cities in China are beginning to ban this form of transportion because the casualty rate is out of control – but not Yangjiang.  I’ve seen 5 people mashed-up on a scooter like a circus act.  Unbelievable.  I sat at a bus stop for about 45 minutes taking “pan shots” at a low shutter speed to capture the motorcycle culture.

    Fantastic Job!

    I don’t have an idea that someone can do such a good-catch when the motorcycle is speeding up. Wonderful!!!
