Gorgeous pictures, thanks! I think I'm doing well to be able to identify about 2/3 of what I see (thanks to Chinatown markets here), but it all looks wonderful (except the hotter peppers).

First visit to Bondi Beach in Sydney they had a stall at the side of the road. "Freshly Made Smoothies" The fruit was uncut and drinks were made to order. The display looked so amazing -but what were they all ! Even when someone tells you its Starfruit - you've no idea what it tastes like. So I had the best smoothie - ever. Fresh sliced Pineapple and Root Ginger. With extra Ginger. Nothing else added. Heaven in a glass ! Been to so many countries since that insist you have to have Yoghurt or...

Your images create the feeling of a ghost-town. Fascinating old place!

I have a habit of photographing places empty of people, even when there are people around. I wait. But in this case, there were very few, that I saw anyway, compared with the number of buildings. The reason may, in part, be that it's in an agricultural area so residents may have been off working somewhere. But I'm sure it is an underpopulated place and the disrepair of some buildings adds to the impression. I loved the place.

I tend to like photos with fewer people in it -- preferably none, although sometimes people add a sense of scale and color to an image. I can see why you loved the place. It has a real (as opposed to fake) charm to it. Thanks for sharing the photos!

This conversation reminds me of a day I was photographing a very popular garden in England and I was waiting for one woman to get out of the frame. What I hadn't noticed as I watched her was that a group was forming behind me, not impatient with me, but waiting with me. Finally, a woman said "come on, move along" to the woman taking her time, who was too far away to hear, and we all laughed. It was a very nice moment with a group of very nice people, as garden people tend to be. I did...

I hope I would have turned around and snapped a photo of that patient group of people waiting! A colorful collection of flowers, I suspect!

Thanks! this is fascinating; most people I know who have gone to China have been with organized groups, or on teacher tours, so their experience was very different from this. What drew you to that particular area? I'm also curious to know whether the farms you encountered were individual holdings, or whether there is still an active collective agriculture in areas like this.

I really enjoyed these beautiful photos -- especially the one of the woman cooling down her buffalo! -- and your story of this place. What a great destination! I do enjoy rafting, but don't believe those rafts were made for me. I'll take the inflatable American variety, thanks very much.

Pheymont, it was the iconic landscape that attracted me to the area. The tulou in Fujian were the impetus for the trip and when I realized that the area I'd admired for so long, originally in scroll paintings, was relatively close to Xiamen and between there and another intended destination, the cross-border overnight train from Nanning to Hanoi, it was on. As you've likely surmised, my trips tend to be longer than the average tour-traveling visitor and my curiosity such that packages are...
