Low Tide On Naozhou Dao

Tides going out on Naozhou Dao, China. I was shaken and a little spooked when I found this scene to photograph. We had been chased by a Chinese army tank on the beach and they took all our cameras. When we got them back (no photographing on military outposts–but I’m back! 🙂 ) we hired a driver to take us to the end of Naozhou Dao (Dao means island). Here we also found and old, decaying monastery with two old Chinese men looking quite destitute.

I have more  posts to come on this part of my new book, Shooting Elephants In Shanghai.
