At the request of the powers at QINGDAO(nese), I’ll be mirroring (re-blogging?) some posts from my blog, just the odd photograph and a few scribbles now and then, most from just around your very doorstep, others taken as far away from Qingdao as is seemingly possible..
it’s difficult to avoid references to those ominous scenes in coppola’s masterpiece when dealing with sand, sea and whirling blades (though the chopper sequences in ‘black hawk down’ were damn impressive too).
shot this near ‘shi lao ren‘ (石老人) from the cockpit of my bicycle yesterday with the door off.
