First Uploads from China

As a westerner with very limited language knowledge it's not easy to travel in China. Nevertheless I'm well "protected" by my chinese wife and mother-in-law. Besides the language barrier - even the Chinese Windows from my mother-in-law's laptop is a challenge - China is a paradise for photographers.

A good source for photos are the parks with its pavilions, the dancing amateur groups, musicians and people feeding the birds:

Since the province Yunnan in South-West China has the highest density of ethnic minorities, the Minority Village in its capital Kunming is an absolute MUST for each photographer. There is even a catholic church!

Another good source for photos are the food market places. China has a great food culture, so the variety of vegetables, fruits and any kind of food is immense:

Be careful with the chili - it burns twice when you eat it - and keep in mind that not everything what is offered at the food markets is for the faint-hearted.

And when the sun goes down use your tripod:

Much more photos are in the pipe!!!

Excellent pics! I was just in Kunming as well but also travelled around the province as well. China is a truly amazing country and incredibly diverse...with some great photo ops. However it's not an easy place for some. This is my second time here on as many years and Im still trying to get the hang of things...

Thank you very much to all of you!

Unteroffizier: Chinese New Year festival starts at the 10th February. During this time more or less the whole country (around 1.35 billion people) is on vacation. That's a very tough time to travel!

I checked the first 2 photos' details and seems like they were taken on early January. February is usually the lunar new year month and maybe you should be seeing this fesitval's related decorations over at China.
