Travel Theme/WFC: Rivers/On the Move

Two for the price of one this week, On-the-Move on a river

On the move…
At the River Jiang in Jiangsu Province my progress is interrupted at this lock used by live-aboard sea-going vessels. Further upstream the river widened and here you can cross the expanse of putty-coloured water by pagoda ferries. In nearby calm water inlets, men in canoes prepared to fish with cormorants in the night. Witnessing this ancient occupation literally took my breath away.I miss China…

  2. Great images for the challenge, Tony. It must be a very hard life on the rivers there.

    Fabulous Tony, China is so totally ‘other’ to me.

  6. Hi – couldn’t find a “comment” section on your post about Letters. What I wanted to say there was this: I, too, have a large box full of letters from many different countries which I saved over a period of 30 yrs or so. They are still a treasure to me. There is really no way to “save” e-mail correspondence in a similar way, that would even come near to the satisfaction of holding a physical letter with foreign (or old) stamps in your hand.

      You are so right and for me I don’t even want to read the letters yet couldn’t separate the letters from the envelopes… Thals so much for you
