Goddess of the Sea
Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Huizhou,
September & October 2009
Gerard from Switzerland came over to the East!
On the way to Huizhou, woke up to the bus making a speedy stop. A Truck got out of control and slid out…
Owen came out to Huizhou as well!
Happy Fisherman who whistled Mozart’s symphony!
Everyone goes to skate Shenzhen, but no one really looks outside of town. Took a bus over to Dongguan to find spots and pagodas.
It was only a couple days away till the big event!
I woke up in Hong Kong on the first of October and its noisy outside of my Window!
60 Years of People’s Republic of China!
And surprisingly even Hong Kong is celebrating!
Gerard and I took a speed boat over to Macau!
For those who don’t know, Macau is a Country which is located in the Guangdong Province of China. Its only an hour boat ride away from Hong Kong, and it borders China in the north. Macau has a difference currency, as well as different laws and of course Portugal influence. And everyone knows Macau for its gambling!
At night, the city is lighten with many volts!
We skated some of the famous spots and also found some new stuff!
Back in Hong Kong, 14 year old kids can apparently become Security Guards at Malls!
On the last day for Gerard in China, I showed him the Big Buddha on Lantau Island!
Owen and I continued the search for new spots in different cities in the Guangdong Province. Shanwei was our next stop.
Shanwei is located on the coastline.
I thought I had Black and White film in my 35mm camera…
Moments before he got angry for disturbing the gamble!
I am in China, gotta take some pictures of Dragons!
Owen works in the Wine Industry!
Since we didn’t find any really good spots in Shanwei, I bussed over to Qingyuan, which is a city north of Guangzhou. Altogether took a 6 hours bus ride there and back. But I saw some really interesting stuff out there so it was worth it.
After looking for some spots, I walked a bunch of stairs up the hill of Qingyuan to check out some Temples… I thought I had it bad walking up there, the guy in front of me carried up bottled water in boxes…
7 RMB’s (Chinese currency) equal a US Dollar… you do the math!
Officially one of my favorite portraits I took in China! This man portraits the hard working chinese class.
