Taken while on a visit to Lübeck in Germany. I thought the guys in suits provided a nice contrast to the picture.

By now my time in China was nearing an end. The last night we were in Shanghai. We took a glass of Wine in Shanghais’ Le Baron night club. It was early so there was no one there expect me my colleague, and an army of bar staff. This picture on the wall caught my eye. I know it’s a bit of a cheat but I loved it. I converted it to black and white. I think it has impact … and three pretty girls :0)

You could take this type of shot in many cities around the world. I just happened to be in Shanghai. I love the fact that her eyes are closed in this shot and, that wonderful expression. Even her carrier bag sends a message .

Not much PP except the B&W conversion. I just cropped a little. I didn’t bother to straighten it either, I liked the angle.

This one was a grab shot. Taken while I had my cell phone out of my pocket walking down a side street in Xiamen. Lots of stories here. I didn’t pay much attention to this shot until I saw it on my screen at home. It’s nice in colour too. However I think the colours steal the storytelling element somewhat.
I’ll leave that for you to decide dear reader.

Fisherman: On my way around the lakes in Xiamen there are lots of fishermen trying their luck. I thought that the hipstamatic app did rather well for this rainy day shot

After the three legs of my journey were behind me I arrived jet-lagged in Xiamen in China. I decided as this one afternoon was more or less what I would have to sight see. I took a walk in the rain around a local lake. I was scouting a route for a run in the morning before work began.
What got me was the heat even though it was raining, 30+,it was like taking a walk in a lukewarm shower. I stood under some trees to take this shot of the hotel I was staying at (The low white building in the middle)the branches provided cover and a nice frame for this shot.

A little while ago I had a business trip to China. Because of the tightly packed schedule I only took my iPhone X and my wifes’ Sony RX100 Mk2. I will share some of the shots I managed to take in the next few weeks. Starting at the beginning. This was taken on one of the many flights I took, while there. Books sure look different there.

I think I saved the best until last. Tore in his workshop. A real nice guy with a fun loving disposition. He said “If you’re going to take a picture I’ll have to look serious”.

I printed  this shot, as I have the others in this series and given them as a thank-you getting in front of my lens.

I hope you enjoyed the series as much as I enjoyed making and sharing it with you.

Taken on the same coffee break as last weeks shot. Rodger was too cool to pose for me instead I took this shot when he leaned over to see what I was doing. I think it worked better in the end.
