Photographer's Note

It's been about a year and a half since I joined TrekEarth, so I thought it time to revisit my very first post, as there are a few things differently I would do differently now.

I discovered TE because I wanted to learn about the world and found myself learning about photography.

With my thanks to all who shared their ideas, comments and creativity. I hope you like my new version.


Kaifeng (simplified Chinese: 开封; traditional Chinese: 開封) is a prefecture-level city in eastern Henan province. It is one of the Seven Ancient Capitals of China and reached its peak of importance in the 11th century during the Song dynasty, when it is believed to have been the largest city in the world.

Within the ancient walls, old Kaifeng is a wonderful place to soak up history and atmosphere. In fact, we found this rather off-beat place one of the highlights of our 2007 China trip.

This picture was taken outside one of the main temples in the old city center.
