Catalyst for journey

Posted on

I am about to embark on a 6 week photographic journey to China. I will be posting here when I am able showing some of my work as it is gathered.

My reason for travel to China in June and July 2012
Next destination?

This is the catalyst image for my trip. In 2005 I traveled to China on 1 of the 10 times I was there for business. I captured this image with a Canon Elph 4 Mega Pixel point and shoot camera from across the parking lot at a service center in South China. This trip I will have cameras for high quality image capture.

This man is peddling a tricycle that is weighed down with close to 800# or 350 KG of fuel! There are so many answers to learn from so many questions:

  • How far will he travel to deliver?
  • How long has he been doing this?
  • How much does he earn?
  • Where does he live?
  • How many people does he provide for?
  • Many other questions….

China is full of modern and old ways. My goal is to capture some of the many aspects of old and new before some of the old disappears.

    1. Thanks Doug, This is a dream that has blossomed. This is project taking me way out of my comfort zone. In the past I liked a schedule and to know where I WILL sleep. Not so, after the first week, and a very different culture as well. Still working on connectivity plans as this time.

  1. Bon Voyage, Terry! Will look forward to your blogs in the near future. It is a trip of a lifetime for sure.

    1. Thank you so much Karen! This may be the first of many? “You Never Can Tell” to quote a brilliant and visionary man. GBS
