Timeless by *michaelanderson
Photographer comments: “When I first saw a photograph of the karst peaks of Guilin, China thirty years ago, I couldn’t believe a landscape like this really existed. The area remained at the top of my ‘life list’ of places to see since then. When I finally found the opportunity to visit, I wandered alone on the riverbanks and met a cormorant fisherman who showed me his traditional methods. They fish at night and the lantern attracts fish toward the raft so the cormorant can dive in and catch them. The fishermen tie a loose string around the cormorant’s neck so they can’t swallow it completely, and the men pull out the fish and store them in a basket. This method of fishing has existed for over a thousand years here. I decided to call the image ‘Timeless’ in honor of the men and their tradition. It is still possible to find the ‘old China’ if you know where to look.”

"Lead Me to Light" by Edwin Martinez.
(an infrared photo)

Photographer Comments:  " A business trip to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam made me realized how much I missed shooting travel and streets.  Gearing away from my comfort zone of shooting landscapes, I try to wander the busy streets of Ho Chi Minh. These are my capture of Ho Chi Minh with side trips at Cu Chi and Mekong Delta."
