When I look at them, it reminds me of sad places like warzones (you see those pictures on the daily news quite often), but seeing all those children play badminton and having fun, just creates an odd mixture of happiness and peace inside. Best shots I've ever seen, honest.
    Are those golf balls in the last picture? Weird looking ;P
    Thanks!
    I guess the golf balls were thrown from nearby golf club accidentally, and the village collected them for selling.

    Cool Go, Go, Speed Racer...

    ..nope, it's not the movie, but i swung by shoreline Long Beach, CA (USA) earlier today and experienced an American car racing event in the form of the Toyota Long Beach Grand Prix..
    Ah, the experience of it all; burnt rubber, burnt ethanol (high octane fuel, similar to jet fuel, used in the cars??), booming & ear deafening engine, blazing sunrays, bountiful foods & drink, break-neck exhilarating speed, breath-taking view of the shoreline and ocean and of course not forgotten.........beauteous babes (pic at the end for our own cooler*wink*)
    So, for you guys car-buffs and car-racing enthusiasts, here are some pics to share~enjoy the pics..(i think i might've "frozen" the cars too much; should've showed some sort of movement)..





    Racing pics:













    Non-racing pics:

    It is a 2nd hand reissue (series iv). It is diffult and expensive to get gec kt88...instead, going to buy in nos reissue gold lion(russia) kt88 at about C$90 per pair here. As well, all the original small china tubes have to be replaced too.... Put in mullard 12at7, and telefunkan 12ax7.

    Maybe the children also dived into the sea to retrieve them to earn extra pocket money.

    I also think your pics are beautiful, especially the black & white. Thanks for sharing! But how come you use BC's name?

    that would be a tough job! most area including all footbridges along that route will be sealed!
    so i think it would be more easier for u to cover either the start (hk cultural centre) or the finish (golden bauhinia square) or even both! coz there will be more open space!
