Is anyone else out there related to people at Wong Nai Han Git on Chuen (15mins outside Taishan?). I recently learnt I have ancestral roots there and would be interested to hear from others. Victor Kwan in Toronto? FYI Richard, your website and photos helped me with my journey/discovery. In particular your photo of the signpost. Thank you. Stephen

Hi Ben,
It was a fun trip to Taishan and we've been back to visit relatives 3 times already. Enjoyed seeing the local villages with lots of country atmosphere! Stayed at Taicheng in February this year. Loads of fun with late evening dim sum starting at 9pm! Are you in Beijing now?

Hi Victor,

I have been to Chikan and did some photos of the protected Daiolou buildings. Thanks for your info on Kylie Kwong! I am a fan of her cooking shows. I also have relatives in Dihai, Kaiping.

Hi Richard,

I enjoy seeing your pictures of your Mom's ancestral village, the sign to the entrance of the village is the same picture that the Australian chef Kylie Kwong used in her book My China. She went back to the same ancestral village where her great grandfather came from. I recognize Mr.Fong, she has a picture of him in her book. Small world. I hope to one day go to my parents ancestral village, they are from Chikan town.

Patty--Enjoy your ancestral quest and the delicious fruits when you are there and see the wonderful Jade Lake and Bird's Paradise. By now the Palm Tree Forest may have been restored.

Thank you for the photos from Xinhui. I am forwarding to my family in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are currently working on our ancestral origins and are just discovering our family village in Xinhui (Sun Wui). Your work is excellent. The family will enjoy this. Thank you!

i stayed in NYC for 2 months. it is really a wonderful city, and i am always wondering
how many stories will happen within it?

I wandered along the soho district, it is more like european style in these small districts.

well done!!

Great images. I was referred to here by your father-in-law, Mr. Lee.
It's great to see you have such great relationships and I can tell
that he looks at you as his own son.

Your images are great. It's great to see photos from so many
different places.

Keep up the great work and I'll come back here to visit often.

You have a great eye for composition! You are inspirational. BTW, thanks for the kind comments.

Hi Richard, Thanks for leaving a comment on my guestbook. The ancient cities is in Samudprakran province neat Bangkok, Thailand. It is one of the well know trourist attractions. Please, visit when you come to Thailand.
Richard Young15-Jan-2004 07:26

Thanks for your very warm comments and invite! We've been as far as Johor Bahru and my aunt Lily (on my father-in-law's webpage) is from Ipoh! And I've fished off Phuket.

Enjoyed your latest World Fish Center workshop gallery and no doubt you'll benefit from the VR glass from Nikon as I enjoyed this lens for hand held night shots.

Hi Richard,

Hi from Penang, Malaysia. Thanks for dropping by my site earlier. Glad to meet a fellow D100 user. Coincidentally, I am trading in my 28-105 for (your) 24-120 AFS VR tomorrow so it's gonna be an exciting week next week as I run the thing through it paces. Maybe we can exchange notes on setting secrets & other tips. Amazing machine, the D100.

Your dad in law is pretty excited to have his pics on the www. That's really nice to see and is really apparent in how his galleries are presented. My congratulations to him.

Nice pictures of Africa and Asia. See that you have been to Thailand. I am not that far away (Northern Malaysia, about 2 hours drive to the border and another 5 hours to Phuket/Phi Phi).

You got to drop me a line the next time you come around here. Fishing ain't too bad and I got a 25 footer center console and a 60hp (8 year old) Evinrude ready to go - serious.

Keep in touch!

Best Regards,
Richard Young27-Dec-2003 00:06

Thank you and Happy Holidays to you and your pals at Takahachi!
See you next year!

I really enjoyed them.
Have a safe trip.
Hope see you soon, again.

Thanks for dropping by; I enjoyed the great nature shots at your site.

Nice gallery.
I enjoy it very much. thx
Richard Young28-Jun-2003 17:56

I check your great galleries often and admire how you view your fellow men who may not be as fortunate. You see beauty in the jobless, homeless, and elderly. The factory closure images were touching.

Hong Kong is a beautiful place and you captured some of the nuances of life there.

"A photograph captures an instant of life. Sometimes it shows us more than what we saw..."
Richard, i found that's a meaningful comment for photography!

Enjoy your galleries very much,
