Kaiping, Guangdong.

This mornning I made some shots to show how Kaiping looks like at the dawn, and to continue testing my cheap (under 1000RMB) pocket-camera.Every photo shown here is not processed -  despite change of the size in Irfan View.
Every photo is made in automatic modes, with a very few settings modified (as this camera don't have manual settings).

Starting from the river, that is the axis of Kaiping.

While waiting for the sun - I made few photos to show how differend can be the same place.

what is the test result of your cheap pocket-camera?  are you satisfied with it?

it seems that expats are always fond of using their cameras to record the ordinary life in China.

Yup. I'm satisfied, but still finding some weak spots.

And the biggest test wasn't made yet, made because of the weather :)

Hm... "oridinary" is not so oridinary for us.
Few persons said, that when we are visiting the new place - we see it different than locals.
And I thhink, that it is true.
I can't speak for the others, but for me it is also essentiall to show as real Chinese life as possible.
Not only as it is in the biggest cities, not as in the "theme parks" and "Tourist villages". But a real everyday life in an average places. Helps me that I live in the average small city, and I have few friends in here or in the villages around.
I've seen some bigger cities and I'm impressed by the modern development, but what I really like - is a small and average city (town?). With all pros and cons :)
