This was an interesting challenge and I tried to give it a lot of thought. I came up with these pictures: a cold-water car-wash in Fuzhou, Fujian Province, China. I snapped these pictures in June 2000 using my Pentax K-1000.
This was our first trip to China. We adopted Erin on this trip. We walked around town during our off-times and saw sites like this car-wash. We visited grocery stores and shops. People smiled at us; some who could speak a lot of English and some who just knew a smattering would say ‘hello’ as we passed by. The school-aged children learning English in school would try out their language skills on us. It was a great experience. People are people anywhere you go!
The ‘Pick a Topic from My Photo’ categories: water, reflection, industry (maybe that one is a stretch), red, green, gray (and a few more colors), lines, shapes, windows – I think I just about got them all here!
June is a part of monsoon season in Fuzhou, and it was 105°F and 95% humidity on this particular day. I would have gladly walked through the car-wash myself just to cool off.
