old china 2

I received a lot of compliments on the first go around of Old China so I have decided to do another. You may see some duplicates in this series, I apologize in advance.  Please enjoy these, the photos depict a lifestyle and culture that most of the “modern” world cannot comprehend.  As always, please let me know what are your favorite photos in the series and please rate the post as well 🙂

One other thing to note:  I am not the restorer of these photos, I copied them from a much more talented person than myself 🙂
