Shengsi, an archipelago of almost 400 islands at the mouth of China’s Yangtze river, holds a secret shrouded in time – an abandoned fishing village being reclaimed by nature. These photos by Tang Yuhong, a creative photographer based in Nanning, take us into this lost village on Goqui island.

Right and wrong do not exist, neither does God - in any form - for that matter...we are governed by the chemicals in our bodies....understanding freedom of choice and self accountability is the bottom line... All this I have learned from riding...

That is awesome. I'd love to live there until someone kicks me out...which in China would probably mean my new accommodations would be prison. ;)

I have an ancestor born in China, so I've always wanted to go there.

I'd love to add this to the list of places to see while there.

Thanks for posting this!

When I look at things like this I always think about the empty rooms and how many homeless people there are that would be extremely gracious to live in them even without plumbing or electricity. But, knowing how the world works- if anyone lived in said empty rooms... they'd be people with vast amounts of money! :p People eat shit like this up.

All that being said! Great thread. Thanks for sharing!

    More Info

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$40.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $40.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $40.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $40.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $40.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
