My flickr contact David Evans took this great billboard portrait in Shanghai, China with his Leica M.
I love that she’s oblivious to the great billboard, so wrapped up in her phone but still with short shorts and what looks like a high-end purse.
My flickr contact David Evans took this great street shot of a knife sharpener in Shanghai, China with his Leica M.

Brilliant how the reflection is inside the sunken boats.

Flickr member peejoker has posted a great shot taken with his Ricoh GR of prayer flags on the shore of Qinghai Lake, a giant salt lake in northwest China.
My flickr contact choongching took this amazing image in Kashi, Xinjiang, China.
While the image may be out of focus with exposure issues it is so incredibly fascinating I had to post it here.
The baby, the bag (grandma) is holding on the scooter, the women driving the scooter but a man’s face with sunglasses in the left rearview mirror, the young girl with leggings, the young (girl?) pulling up her pants, grandma, the little boy seeming to spot the camera through the crowd, the guy on the right gesturing, the Prado sign. What a great mix of things going on here.
Note: One of the many reasons I love Flickr is that I have contacts and connections in all corners of the world. The images that these folks post are not put through a photojournalism filter, they’re just scenes from lives in different places. It’s brilliant and I’ve been watching many of these feeds for close to ten years. Flickr remains my very favorite social network and the only one I take seriously.
