That's such a great set of images. I especially liked the colors in the umbrellas and the bolts of fabric.

These are some fabulous photos. I'm sure if I were there I would be too overwhelmed to get such great shots. I especially love the bolts of fabric, the little girl and the parasols. All of the photos give such a flavor of the place.

I want some of that Restaurant Whiff BBQ. You take the best photos!

This is a fascinating variety of photos, TR, colorful and exotic. I very much enjoyed the photo of the small girl with that big headdress, and wonder how it's affixed to her hair. Enlarging the photo did not reveal the secret.

I'm looking forward to the next installment. Have fun; be safe.

Oh T.R. T.R. T.R. How on earth am I ever going to compete with your beautiful photography? You have such an eye. I am trying to learn from you, and fast.

Maybe when we meet up in Beijing, you can give me a 5-minute most-important-things-to-consider lesson?!

Jean said...

Gads. Fabulous. Those bolts of fabric sent me into a quilting fantasy! Stay safe and well. You are in our prayers.

I am insanely jealous! Not only that you get to be in China, but that you saw a freakin' Snail Kite! You suck. ;-)

Seriously, though, have fun while you're over there and bring home lots of memories (and share them with us!!!).

Mary said...

Another world, indeed. I'm so ready for August 8.

Enjoy, Tim! What a colorful place... You take me away with your photos. I hope you can maintain your internet connection and share more with us.

Be safe and happy.

Mary

These are great pictures, and they make me want to go there.

I assume if it's not Oklahoma, it must be Kansas or something then, right?

Greg said...

Holy cultural immersion, Timtim!

These are some beautiful images, a nice flavor of your introduction.

Somehow, I can't help but wonder how amusing it might be to hear a chorus sing a Chinese-language version of "Oklahoma"...

Lana Gramlich said...

Wowzers! So much vibrant color & beauty! I love the angle on the stone dragon carving.

Alan Scott said...

Yeah, I think you're right, T. R. That doesn't look much like Oklahoma to me either. LOL But those pictures are beautiful enough to be. ;) Great shots!
