“China is…” a Photobook from my First Year in China

Saturday, August 13th, 2011

Wow! What a summer! I’ve been busy making photobooks and reminiscing about my first year in China. I took so many photos! It was hard to consolidate them all and choose the best ones for a couple of these photo books. I made a few this summer but I’m going to highlight one of them that I did.

This was a 5″x5″, paper back, full color photobook ordered from Silver Street Media. It came out really well and 5″x5″ is so small that I can throw it in my carry on or my wife can throw it in her purse! I decided to add to the photos by writing a caption on the opposite side.

If you are interested in the book contact me here. Enjoy the photos!

So many cute kids in China.  This was 10 years ago so these kids are probably all on the internet!

These are hard to take photos of because they are FAST!!

This was the school’s cafeteria.  Rice for everyone.

I love the spring in China.  So beautiful.

With a sink full of dishes I would still be washing them 10 years later!

I would explain what I was doing here…but it would take me 10 minutes!

My first year in China LABEL

Receiving packages in China.

I can’t tell you how wonderful it is to get a box, any size,
When it comes to the school and I bug out my eyes
It’s beaten up bad because it’s from far away.
Oh what a happy, glorious, unexpectedly perfect day!
I can’t tell you how exciting it is to get a box, what’s inside?
Sometimes it’s at the post office and I have to take a ride.
From family or roommates or long lost old college friends,
Books are inside, with food and coffee of assorted blends.
I can’t tell you how marvelous it is to get a box, what’s this?
Each item in the box is from my friend, brother or sis!
These already old newspapers are great and the goldfish are keen!
But who sent me the National Enquirer Magazine!?
I can’t tell you how great it is to receive a box, hey hey!
Whether in September, January, June, July or May
Getting the box and looking inside can really change your mood
Like finding some snacks, eating them all, like my favorite SMARTFOOD!
I can’t tell you how superb it is to get a box, it’s so great.
But please don’t feel bad if I don’t at once reciprocate
When I come back from China I’ll bring you what you want
Made in China stuff, chopsticks or random magnets from Vermont!
