I love mountains. I think it started from all of the road trips as a kid. We’d always seem to head to BC for our family vacations. Living in Beijing is as close to the mountains as I have ever lived. A couple hours on a bus and I can be deep in the mountains. Sure they are not as impressive as the Rockies, but I take what I can get.

I love my 4×5 camera. It is a pain to use. It is slow. It is not that sturdy. It is by no means a pretty camera. But all the same, I love to use it. Seeing big 4×5 negatives is really cool. Some days I want to step up to 8×10 to see if […]

I love my 4×5 camera. It is a pain to use. It is slow. It is not that sturdy. It is by no means a pretty camera. But all the same, I love to use it. Seeing big 4×5 negatives is really cool. Some days I want to step up to 8×10 to see if it gives me 4 times the awe that 4×5 does, but the cost and extra effort seem a bit too much at this point. Maybe one day, but for now, I am happy with my Japanese wooden camera.

A few images from work. I really do love my job. The kids are great most of the time and I get to make cool art projects as much as I want.

I am currently in the planning stage for my Spring Festival trip. I don’t have as much time as I would like, so I am trying to find a place to go that doesn’t have me spending 20 hours on a plane. It is tough though because with lay-overs, hitting the 20 hour mark is rather easy. I don’t want to say any of my potential locations yet, because at this early stage, things change.

Tian Du Cheng – Hangzhou’s Paris

Tian Du Cheng is a place that I like to visit every time that I am back in Hangzhou. Each time I go, it is a little more run down that the last. It was built just before I moved there in 2007. It was shiny and new. They had hoped that it would be a large tourist attraction and built it as such. Now it is a state of disrepair. The houses are empty, the parks are largely overrun, and people don’t really go.

So I have a holiday in November thanks to the APEC summit in Beijing. I’ll be spending a week in Guilin and Yangzhou. I plan on taking my 4×5 camera and am quite excited to shoot some landscape. I don’t do enough of that.
