My first trip to China was in 1998 with my sister. Digital imaging was just coming into its own. Though I converted very quickly (my first digital 1997 had 1.2 megapixels) I clung to my old Pentax using Kodachrome film to prints. Ive begun the process of print to digital conversion. The quality suffers but the spirit is still there. This trip impacted me greatly and completed a life long dream of visiting the great wall.

I love the film look of these images of China. It gives them texture.

I think #1 can be made into a nice painting.

I actually had that printed on canvas. I misplaced the original print. I reproduced the image off the canvas so it looks a bit grainy.

Ah, that explains the texture I observed. I was wondering where those lines came from.
