First pictures! DP1 and DP2 [Updated text]

Developed on uncalibrated equipment, tried to make sure they looked ok using histogram. Not that easy with colors. Oh well. Will update with some text later but now I’m off to that hot spring to swim. Big thing with Linn’s relatives etc. They have high hopes for my swimming style. haha.

Oh and under each picture you see if it’s DP1 or DP2. Most is DP1 as it’s wider and suites my photography style a bit better.


Human power. Or the power of humans. It’s quite amazing how some of these people work and you can’t really see it on this shot but if I wanted to take a picture of him he would most likely give me a big smile and treat me a cigarett (which I would have to decline). And no, I’m not talking about any of the guys sitting there..

I have shoe size 46 in European size, that’s extremely uncommon in China and maybe if I lived in Beijing (Northern Chinese are often bigger, they say it comes from them eating less rice and more bread) I could find something but down here in the south it’s nearly impossible. So above is a shoe maker that I ordered sandals from. I had to paint what I wanted it to look like and everything. The bottom layer is made from an old car tire too. How cool isn’t that? Well. In another week or so I’ll know the result. And price? He was a bit on the expensive side. 60RMB

No money to read the local newspaper? No problem! :)

    Looks a very beautiful place Carl, with lots wonderful photographic opportunities… Love the images you’ve posted so far, waiting for more..!!
    Time to save hard for the DP1 or DP2 I think, not quite sure which one I would choose though.. I like my landscapes, but enjoying taking portraits as well… Decisions, decisions…

    Take care

    Fantastic images Carl! Look forward to seeing some more! BTW I had a blast in NYC, it was amazing seeing what I took for granted as a youth through older eyes and the power of the DP1!
