Green is the color of her skin

shoti (somewhere in, China) on 5 May 2010 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

After taking my two female Cuban guests to the airport, I rushed to the south bus station of Shanghai then bought a ticket for a bus to Ningbo. There I met the other Cuban guy who can barely speak any English. But it came out as a good thing as I was able to exercise my Spanish(if you can call that Spanish, anyway). There, we dined with two other Chinese guys and an lady of Japanese descent who grew in Argentina. I struggled to connect the two parties as the Chinese guys can't understand Spanish(luckily, one can understand English) and the two Hispanic persons can't understand Chinese(the Japanese girl can understand some, though). But as luck would have it, the conversation went about smoothly.
I took a taxi to my hotel and the driver asked me if I liked Ningbo, to which I said 'yes of course'. I loved the color of the trees there especially, and he said that it's 'where Ningbo came from' . Not really sure if I understood it but I suppose I did. Anyway, it's a pretty big city full of trees so I think I'd not mind living in it for years.

In this case it's almost irrelevant where this photo was made. It stands on the strength of its composition. The reflective element is quite nice. The diagonal elements add an intriguing dynamic quality. The exquisite lighting elements create a beautifully balanced composition. This rather transcends the usual travel shot. Larry Elkins

@Larry Elkins: wow, thanks. I don't regard the composition as something 'strong'. it's not so bad, for me. and the best qualities of this image are the colors(to me at least). glad to have known other peoples' opinions. thanks for sharing your ideas Larry :)
