another one from the city of the phoenix...
These people are just trying to get across.
Aren't we all?
Fenghuang is a popular destination for (Chinese) tourists in western Hunan.
It is a lovely old riverside town with lots of wooden houses and atmosphere.

So you didn't have enough of China and you went back. I would love to go back too. Another really nice shot. We can see now that the Chinese are also traveling. Some of them have better camera than we do :) It was not China 20 years ago. Though the light is not great here, but you captured the mood nicely. For whatever reason, they do love the Stepping stones. In many old town, they always built this stepping stone across streams and lakes, and people love to just go across it and back just for fun.

This is both an interesting daily life scene and a well taken picture. All the people provide provide a strong diagonal line as well as an abundance of colours. Well observed and captured.

Hi Benny. Yes, in such a manner it is also possible to cross a river. Chinese people are just very inventive. The photo pleases me very well - and it's a great shot for TE.

sehr interessant, so eine Brücke habe ich noch nie gesehen, wäre etwas für uns, wir verwöhnten Europäer!
Wünsch dir einen schöne Zeit

That's a nice exercise for a morning before going to school or work... only if one can stay on the stone.
Nicely caught the moment, Benny, indeed looks like fun.
The traditional town houses on the far side bank is a marvelous backdrop's.
