Photographer's Note

Qinghai is a vast and remote province in western China. Most of it is on the old Tibetan highlands.

Guide is an old and remote town, built around a monastery, somewhere in eastern Qinghai. It now has the world's biggest prayer wheel (you see a part of it in the background here) and it is being geared up for tourism.

Visiting the wheel we met several families of even remoter parts of Qinghai, who were visiting the sights too.
Looking at each other and taking pictures of each other was just as much fun as admiring the big wheel.

An eye for an eye...these days almost everybody can take pictures. It's big fun swapping shots for a while.
This is what we call progress and nothing is remote anymore,really.
