People on the River Li (1)

Rewind. Go back. Here is the river.


The cruise boats follow one behind the other where the channel's deepest.


A fisherman is curiously enlarged in his window


while he wades


and they bend double.


Something old, perhaps


and something new.

Clare, your last two posts have been suspiciously (and beautifully!) poetic! Lovely.

Fantastic photos, Clare. I do love these images of yours from China!

I guess you could say that you would have unique pictures for your wedding there! How weird you just happen to see the bride and the groom there! Did they get lost on their way to the church! :D

No, I'm afraid I'll never be a poet like you, Kay - but poetic will do me just fine. Thank you Kay!

Thanks Sue - in China I think the photos just take themselves. I just point the thing and press.

Yes, wonderful setting, Angie - I'd forgotten I was taking them until I inspected them. I think they were really just modelling for a fashion shoot, because the 'groom' seems a little underdressed now I think about it.

I've just fallen over your site and, although I haven't had to do more than scan a few posts back, I'm presuming you are there - River Li dampening your toes and all that; wow!
I almost wish you hadn't explained the origin of the Keeper Of The Snails title because I hoped you were, infact, about to tell me all about your idyllic little hobby.
The Welsh in the deep south, slightly further south than Cardiff, sounds like a great subject for a book.

Thanks very much for your kind words, Elaine!

No I'm back from China now - just doing my write-up now. When I've finished I'm going to group it all together on their own blog chronologically.

The Keeper of the Snails has many meanings :-)

The Welsh in Patagonia novel was a bit of a struggle, and still not through it yet, perhaps - but I have to say that doing the research was fascinating.

I always love the shapes of those mountains... And going for a little memory-jaunt through your eyes.

Now, no more. Off to work.
