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 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 […]

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.

I am having all sorts of wanderlust recently. Heading to Vietnam for the October holiday exacerbated it. I really want to take another big trip. I will have to settle for my 24 days of annual holidays.

First Pentax 67 Shot

This is the first image from my new Pentax 67. I shot four rolls, three show some problems, but the fourth is perfect. I am thinking that the first three were related to shitty batteries from wukesong. I bought new batteries online and that last roll worked flawlessly. This is going to be a fun […]

Nothing to say, only a couple pictures that I don’t really feel that strongly about.
