    i love photography and I am so happy to see there are so many people from different countries who use their cameras everyday to record every moment of their lives in China.

  13. Pete Carter Says:


    Because they care.

  14. Des Walsh Says:

    Me too for http://blogofdreams.com/

    The photography gives a glimpse of a more complex, culturally, naturally rich China than endless pics of The Wall, The Forbidden City etc etc. As Pete Carter says in his comment, they care. The photos show that.

    The best travel and destination photographs can be found, daily, at My Marrakesh, http://morrocanmaryam.typepad.com
