Horizontal lines-Stone stairs on Taishan

A man climbing stairs on Mount Tai in Shandong Province, China.
My son on the stairs, I stopped to take a picture (and catch my breath!)

More lines, horizontal this time from Mount Tai (Taishan)’s stairs. This flight is smooth and regular.

Taishan, a.k.a. Mount Tai, a.k.a. Mount Taishan (this is redundant since shan means mountain, but some websites use it, including UNESCO) is a mountain that has important historic, cultural and religious significance for Chinese people. Taishan is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here is a Wikipedia article about it.

More Fishing lines…or is that lines fishing…or a line-up of folks fishing?

Several people fishing under a weeping willow tree on the banks of the Mihe River in Shouguang, Shandong Province, China.
The straight rods of “fish people” on the Mihe River in Shouguang, Shandong Province, China.

Someone I met in Shouguang referred to his (many) fellow citizens who fished along the banks of the Mihe as “fish people”. One does not see a lot of catching so, perhaps, it is the act of fishing that is the goal.

…and Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Lines seems appropriate also: since these folks are having fun with lines.

A bit blurry, but quite linear

More power lines today, I seem to take a lot of them. This was taken from a fast, 305km/hr, moving train in Shandong Province of China.

Vegetable greenhouses and power lines in Shandong Province, China

This scene is representative of Shandong Province, there are lots and lots and lots of these green houses. Shandong is the fruit and vegetable basket of China…with a fair bit of industry thrown in.

Bronze deer

These are in a park in Shouguang, Shandong Province, China. If you decide to go looking for them they are at a park on the east bank of the Mihe River, north of Shengcheng Jie (one of the main roads into the city). Since they are not very near the river they may still be there (much of the area near the river banks was under construction during my visit last spring). I’ll have to go and seek them out on my next visit.
