Throwback to this time last year when myself and 3 friends thought it would be a good idea to get a 11 hour sleeper train from Suzhou to Huangshan to climb the Yellow Mountain... Horrendous journey but what an amazing weekend it was🌞✨
The hot springs were also fab despite being forced to pay an extortionate amount (and I’m talking £30) for an all-in-one bathing costume I am most certainly never going to wear again...not to mention the lifetime memories of embarrassment 我非常想念中国🇨🇳

The #HomemadeLandscape photography series offers a more feminine take on the sublime: the feeling of awe that arises when one pauses in the immeasurableness of the intimate. The scenes are of intimate moments encountered by the artist, often unconstructed and found in her Brooklyn apartment, that reveal the feeling of the sublime as it occurs in everyday life. The artworks are posted on Instagram and geo-tagged as an other “sublime” location, treating the social media platform as both an art medium and subject.

climbing mountains in China is a lot of fun (and steps) || sorry for spam 🤓 trying to bring my feed back to life so here’s a shot from my GoPro (50mm does not do justice for the mountains)

Long time no see! I’m currently living in China and finally found some motivation to rekindle my love for photography 😌 first I’d like to post this shot from my adventures in Tianjin (this place is called the Binhai Library)! 🛫 #shotoniphone

A golden morning in the Huangshan Mountains. Our first sunrise in China and one we won't ever forget. #VisitChina
We had made it to the east endings by late afternoon, at which time we had the chance to marvel in one of the best possible colorations at the fantastic views unfolding themselves after the perpendicular precipices with those grotesquely formed, peculiar pines (Pinus Hwangshanensis) balancing themselves perilously out the edges of the cliffs, and towards the immense, cotton-white cloud-sea expanding to and beyond eyereach, with those pillar-like peaks raising themselves like biblical towers above it here and there.
Visit to Bengbu 蚌埠 birthplace of the Ming dynasty 明朝 (1368-1644) Zhuyuanzhang 朱元璋， who wanted to make it also Chinas capital after he got himself from a position of a mere monk to the emperor of China. Bengbu is however flat, so not the best choice for a capital, he therefore decided for Nanjing (and his son then moved it to Beijing). We drank 54847 kinds of green tea, Huangshan Maofeng 黄山毛峰，Yuexi Cuilan 岳西翠兰，Anji Baicha 安吉白茶，Wangguangxi Songluo 王光熙松萝，and also some red tea - Meizhan 梅占 etc. and we (unintentionally) took 5487738445 pictures(still not many foreigners come to Bengbu)! What a day!
