Photographer's Note

This is the marble boat of the Beijing summer palace, see Peter's picture for more information.

One of the most memorable incidents of my visit to China happened right here by the boat: Right after taking this picture a chinese couple came up to me with a camera. I couldn't understand a word they said, but I guessed that they wanted me to take a picture of them together in front of the boat. But after a while I realised that they wanted to have a picture of them together with me. First the man took a picture of me with his girlfriend and then they switched. I guess they were from the countryside, and had never seen any westerners or something, so that I became a greater attraction than the beautiful boat. Maybe I should try soemthing similar if I see any tourists here in Sweden :).

This is taken with a simple APS camera (as are all my other photos from China) so the quality isn't excellent. I added contrast and more blue, after resizing I sharpened.

I hope to get some better weather this summer when I go back, and I'll have a better camera so hopefully I can get better pictures from here.
