Motherland!

Journal Entry: Sun Sep 16, 2007, 7:13 AM
The photography gallery page is good for you. Have some every day!



Hey, I'm taking a photo trip to China starting on October 1. I'll be flying to Beijing, mucking around for a week or so there, then going down to Shanghai for a few days, and then Guangzhou. I'll end up in Hong Kong around the 20th, I think, then off to Bangkok (yes I know it's not in China) on the 24th for a week.

Has anyone been to China before? Do you live there? If you do, can I meet you? What and who should I shoot? Although I'd like to see some of the main sights, I would like to get off the beaten track a bit too. Any suggestions?

Hey that's cool. I'm living in Guangzhou right now.
Not much to snap photos of in the city besides the typical skyscrapers and hobos.
I would recommend catching a bus out of the city; there's this really huge canyon off somewhere. If you don't mind having loud obnoxious traditional Chinese music blaring over the speakers and lame circus acts going on, then it's worth a shot, I think.

Haha yes, I met up with @shutdown in Guangzhou. I didn't do a lot of shooting there, but it was still fun. Thanks!

Hey Kev, hope you have fun and enjoy your time there.

Sounds like quite the trip, so remember to plan well in advance, and yes, try to meet locals who can show you a bit what's outside the beaten track.



:peace:

thanks man. i'm planning but i'm not planning. i think i want to have lots of flexibility, so that when the locals recommend something, i can be free to go. :)

Hey Kev, I went to Beijing before it was awesome - just don't miss out on the great wall, it's worth the climb to the top - i was told there is a chinese saying that if you make it to the top of the wall you are considered a man :D. Anyways I have a friend who lives in Guangzhou @shutdown so if you need help note him. You'll be in Bkk on Oct 24th? I'll try flying down from Chiang Mai, maybe we can go around Bkk doing a shoot.
