China 2007 - Wordless Wednesday

My friend has been after me to post more current pictures for my WW posts. Outside of family pictures, I don't have any. I've been really itching for some photo-shoot opportunities. So until then, here some more shots from China (July 2007). These kind of stood out among the nearly 700 I took there.
Walking through an old farming village in Nanchang.


Along side the Great Wall of China

Let us in! Let us in!


A walk through a park in Guangzho


More sights in the old farming village


Displayed proudly in a restaurant window. This was supposed make us want to eat there?

LOL... You've got a friend here that loves to nibble on those duck webs. I hope that doesn't make u run away from me!! heehee..

Chinese like braising duck webs with osyters sauce :) However the ones you took doesn't appeal to me, they look kinda 'dry'... I'll pass on these!! heeheee

Natalie said...

One look at any of these and you KNOW you're not in Kansas anymore!

My favorite is the first one, the cobblestone street view, but all of these would've made GREAT WW shots (you're generous to post so many at once!).

I'm using this today to show my girls China as they have just been introduced by way of our study of the ancients and the Xia and Shang dynasty. (Don't be impressed; they basically just now know that there was a Shang dynasty.) lol.

Those are gorgeous shots - I'm going to have to come back regularly to see more! I'll have to share with my hubby - he was there on a mission trip about 20 years ago.

Betty said...

Great pictures. I like the first one and then the one of the park the best.

Thanks for visiting me and leaving a comment about Grace the cat.

cookie said...

I think I like each one better than the next, then I go back and look at another and find that I like that one better. I can't decide. Each one is so very different and nice in it's own way.
I'm curious about the camera you were using and also about the lens you used on the red door? Information please?

cookie said...

The winter village you asked about is a little place called Dixboro, just on the outskirts of Ann Arbor, Michigan. It was especially pretty that day.

Liza said...

Great shots! just in time for the Chinese New Year. Kung Hei Fat Choi!

Jenni said...

These are beautiful photos! Well, I'm not sure you can say that about the last one, but it is a good photo nonetheless. They make me want to travel to China and see these things for myself.

Killlashandra said...

They are wonderful pictures of China! The chicken feet are especially telling. ;) When my parents visited China several years ago they had some very similar looking shots too.

Robin said...

Amazing pictures. I love travel photos. In fact, I love them so much that I posted one today for my very first WW.

Bobbie said...

That's a lovely collection of travel photos, Robert. I hope you post some more.

Patty said...

Very cool pictures!

Fantastic, creative photos, Robert! I've visited Hong Kong and was able to go in to mainland China for a day. This was back when Hong Kong was still a British protectorate... But your photos are wonderful! Thanks for posting them! Happy WW!
