This is not a traditional blog site where I write about things that happen to me on a daily basis, things I do or things I see and experience, it is also not a general archive of photos I have taken during my lifetime. The purpose of this blog is to share images that I have taken in China, scenes that I find interesting, humorous, harsh, whimsical and sometimes downright mad.
I also have another photo blog http://moreimagesfromme.wordpress.com this site concentrates on images taken in other countries (not China), if you have time please take a look, make a comment and follow if you like what you see and want to join me on my other photographic journies around the world 🙂
I was born and bred in England… I moved to China and settled in Shanghai around 10 years ago, during that time I have had the opportunity to travel around China and witness massive change, some for the good and some for the bad. I love Chinese Culture, the Language, Chinese History, its people, its cuisine, its architecture; old and new and especially the faces of the people on the street. I love to wonder the streets of Shanghai interacting with the people whilst trying to capture the essence of this wonderful place, its rapid growth and ever changing landscape. I also have a passion to breathe clean air, get out into the countryside, to experience the peacefulness, the tranquility and the massive differences between life in bustling Shanghai and the more remote corners of China.
China is a truly wonderful place, rich in beauty, full of surprises, wide on contrast, extreme in every sense of the word, breathtaking, industrial, rural and frustrating for some.
