While walking the old streets of Fuli this happy child came dancing down the street. I just got one shot of him before he saw me and fast ran away ;)
I wish I had the chance to take several shots since this was done rather hasty. Anyway, I still like it and I also hope that you do!
Fuli Town originally lay to the east of Donglang Hill and was called "Huangdao Street"in the Tang (618-907 A.D.) and Song (960-1279 A.D.)Dynasties. Then it gradually approached the Li River and was renamed "Fuli Town"in the Republic of China (1912-1949 A.D.).
Here you can find not only beautiful scenery but also many happy tales.It is said that Fairy Song, Sister Liu, lived here for many years and she left many beautiful tales after her, In the 7960s, the famous film Sister Liu was based on these tales and mainly filmed here, In recent years,local people have made good use of their cultural heritage and developed the painting-fan industry.
Fuli Town has become the famous "hometown of painting-fan ." In Fuli Town the main scenic spots are the Scenery of Ancient Town, Three Supernatural Women Stones, Kylin-giving Sons, Immortal's Hands, Secret Donglang, Yinlong Fancy Cave,Tangmen Views, Liugong Three Deep Pools, and Ancient Battle Field in Baimian (Yangshuo History Tablet).

Although not technically perfect, there is feel and life in this image. Like a memento from older times. And I think you did a great job with the framing giving the impression of an old time photo.

good timing, fine B&W contrast, maybe I would crop out the top : no wires & no sky area
