    Chinese forum, Chinese photography & hospitality

    A while back there was a thread about Chinese photography, 'Bozeman', who participates in this forum, mentioned his forum, http://paowang.com/photo/ ........and I communicated with him about particpating on his forum, I'm now a member of this forum.

    I don't speak Chinese, but the again photographs speak a universal language, Bozeman announced my joining the forum, and I was welcomed very warmly, one of the members even took a pic of himself waving 'hi' to me, it was all very impressive, the forum consists of a lot 'warmhearted' folks who love photography just like we do here, and they shoot a lot of film.

    Some of the members are located here in the States, many are located in China, many can speak English, to make things easy and unobtrusive, I been using the 'babel' translator whenever I can, which isn't perfect, but many times it gives me the general idea of what's being discussed when looking at a thread.

    Navigating around is getting a little easier, and participating on the forum has been a lot of fun, so I'd recommend checking the forum out, there are some interesting pics/ideas/places.

    BTW, Ilford will hang around longer than anybody thinks, because many of the folks on this forum shoot HP5.

    Jonathan,

    I just went and took a look at the link you provided... lots of images there!

    And, I agree... photographs like music, like a nice big smile, can be a universal language!

    Two words you'll need are Ni Hao and Xie Xie! (How are you and Thank you )

    And, maybe, "Nin xiang, hao, hao" (Your picture is very nice.)

    That's all the Mandarin I can remember from class but you might want to run these phrases through your translation software just to make sure I didn't make a mistake and have you say to one of the members on that forum, "Your mother looks like my elephant!" Or, something akin to that!

    And, btw, I'm Asian but not born there.

    Cheers

    PS: Can you imagine if every Chinese person got into LF photography over in China? We'd have film available for a very, very long time!
    Life in the fast lane!

    Jonathan and Henry:

    Thanks for visiting http://paowang.com/photo/. 非常感谢 (thank you very much )
    Hope more English-speaking people could join our forum. As Jonathan said, photographs speak a universal language.

    Hi Bozeman,

    I now have the site bookmarked but, unfortunately, I'm in the same quandary as Jonathan... communications is a challenge!

    Cheers
