Photographer's Note

While browsing thru my achieve photos, I found this shot done 7 years ago while searching for my ancestral home in one of the remote villages located deep inside Fujian Province of southern China.

All I had then was a Fujifilm FinePix4800 point-and-shoot camera, and this shot was taken from within the chartered van. In a typical village such as this one, most of the dwellings are made from reinforced clay(walls), round logs(columns) and terra-cotta(roof). Life is still very simple and basic, depending mainly on agriculture. During my visit, I was suprised to witness poultry and pigs wondering into the living room. It was not uncommon to see chicken droppings even on the dining table when we got up in the morning. Many in these kind of villages were living well below the poverty line. They may not have much cash but what they certainly have is the clean fresh air compared to the affluent city dwellers. These conditions may have changed today to some extent, I hope.

Thanks for viewing.
