some photos I like

Canghuixu, an old friend from college, has become quite a photographer, in a Rothko- meets- Hopper- and- finds- a- camera vein.

He's got some recent pictures from an extended trip to China.

There are some stark and beautiful images from Factory 798. He describes it as "an artist's colony, for lack of a better term, that is developing in the ruins of a bankrupt state run company in northeast Beijing. It seems to be very much a work in progress."

The image above is from a beautiful series shot at the Temple of Heaven in Beijing. Check out the stately doorways.

This photo of a subway train in motion, from an earlier series in Japan, is another one of my favorites. I have vowed to print out and hang up on my wall.
