"Located on highway 49 a few miles south of Sonora, Chinese Camp is best known for its Tong wars especially the one that occurred on September 26, 1856. It pitted about 900 members of the Yan-Woo Tong against roughly 1200 members of the Sam Yaps Tong. Tong wars seemed to be the traditional way of settling differences among the Chinese miners. It was understood guns were not to be used. Instead, this battle was fought with pitchforks, rakes and other mining and farm tools. Shortly after the fight began, lawmen put a stop to it but only after four Chinese had been killed and many wounded. It's obvious how the town came by its name as it is estimated as many as five thousand Chinese populated the town at one time. Many of the buildings no longer stand but there is plenty that remains to make a visit most interesting."

蘇州近辺にあるガーデン(静思園)です。入場料が50RMB(約650円)と結構高いので、見学者はちらほらとしかいませんでした。

The digital effect makes the photo just like a Chinese painting.

I visited Sydney's Chinese garden recently. As it's in winter, trees lost a lot of leaves. This one is from the end of autumn. Full of leaves and sun coming through.

The Chinese lantern plant is basically a herbaceous perennial that can live up to an age of three years. This unique plant has some great qualities apart from its looks. It has the ability to withstand extremely low temperatures exceeding even more than -40C.

 

Ironically the Chinese lantern plant is not native to the country of China. It was first discovered in Japan. It gets its name from the unique fruit that it produces. The fruit is shaped like a balloon and has a papery texture. It is red in color and known as the calyx. In terms of its appearances it looks exactly like the Chinese lantern craftwork.

 

Chinese ceramic ware shows a continuous development since the pre-dynastic periods, and is one of the most significant forms of Chinese art.

Chinese rose bloomed on the window in my job.

   

 

The Chinese were the first to put water in a container of cut flowers. So, while the Chinese were arranging flowers aesthetically in a container, the rest of the world was braiding garlands, making wreaths and flinging petals.. Japan grasped the vision of combining cut flowers, water and containers from China with such enthusiasm and inspiration that different schools of flower arrangement art emerged with masters who created philosophies and, design principles sprang into existence. The Japanese culture expanded flower arrangement into a meditative practice, which had its roots in beliefs and philosophies. Flower arrangement as well in China as in Japan became an art form that inspired contemplation and transcended decorative and devotional functions

Chinese pagodas (Chinese: 塔; pinyin: Tǎ) are a traditional part of Chinese architecture. In addition to religious use, since ancient times Chinese pagodas have been praised for the spectacular views which they offer, and many famous poems in Chinese history attest to the joy of scaling pagodas.

盧溝橋Lugou Bridge, aka Marco Polo Bridge, is China's oldest stone arch bridge, first built in 1189. There were originally 627 stone lions, each with different expressions and gestures, and now there are only 501 left. The name Marco Polo Bridge was given to it as its Western name, after the famous Italian traveller described it as a magnificent and graceful stone bridge with details about its design in "The Travels of Marco Polo". On July 7, 1937, invading Japanese troops fired heavy ammunition at the bridge and later at the neighboring Wanping city, marking the start of the 8-year full-fledged Chinese resistence against brutal military aggression.

 

盧溝橋始建於金大定十九年(公元1189年)6月,明昌三年(公元1192年)3月完工。全長266.5m,寬7.5m,有11個涵孔,兩側石雕護欄各有140條望柱,柱頭上均雕有石獅,形態各異,或蹲、或伏,或大撫小,或小抱大,明代蔣一葵在《長安客話》中說石獅「凡一百狀,數之輒隱其一」,據記載原有627個[1],現存501個。[2]石獅多為明清之物,也有少量的金元遺存。「盧溝曉月」從金章宗年間就被列為燕京八景之一。

  

盧溝曉月碑

《馬可·波羅遊記》中,形容盧溝橋是巨麗的優美石橋,長300步,寬八步,十人可並騎而過。24個橋弧由25個橋柱支撐。石獅間的距離是1.5步。[3]西方人因此稱此橋為「馬可波羅橋」。

 

明朝正統九年(公元1444年)重修盧溝橋。清康熙年間永定河洪水,橋受損。1698年重修,康熙帝命在橋西頭立碑,記述重修盧溝橋事。橋東頭則立有乾隆帝題寫的「盧溝曉月」碑。公元1908年,光緒帝死後,葬於河北省易縣清西陵,須通過盧溝橋。由於橋面窄,只得將橋邊石欄拆除,添搭木橋,事後,又將石欄照原樣恢復。

 

1937年7月7日在盧溝橋發生的「七七盧溝橋事變」,成為中國展開全國對日八年抗戰的起點。

Straight out of the camera, direct RAW conversion. I was trying out bulb shots during my recent visit to the Chinese Garden as the place wasn't as well-lit as usual. This piece was shot at around 150 seconds at f/16.

Although hairless dogs have been found in many places in the world, it is unlikely that the origins of the modern Chinese crested are in China. The breed was believed by some to have originated in Africa and was called the African Hairless Terrier in several 19th Century texts. However, there is genetic evidence that shows a shared origin with the Mexican Hairless (Xoloitzcuintli). In the 1950s, Debora Wood created the "Crest Haven" kennel and began to purposefully breed and record the lineages of her Chinese crested dogs. The famous burlesque dancer Gypsy Rose Lee also bred Chinese cresteds, and upon her death her dogs were incorporated into Crest Haven. These two lines are the true foundation of every Chinese crested alive today. Ms. Wood also founded the American Hairless Dog Club in 1959, which was eventually incorporated into the American Chinese Crested Club (ACCC) in 1978. The ACCC became the US parent club for the breed when the Chinese crested was recognized by the American Kennel Club thirteen years later, in 1991.

When I was in Xi`an , China , our group had the usual tourist visit to a jade centre showroom. The Chinese are very proud of their tradition of carving jade by hand & many fine intricate examples were on show . I just had to admire their craftsmanship .
