It's been a while since I shared photos with this great community, now I think it's time to come back

I have been some time ago in southern China in Zhejiang province to visit Nanshan village which is known for its Hand-pulled noodles. The whole village is making noodles, they are really very delicious but also the whole scene in the village streets is a treat for an eye.....

All with A7rII FE55mm & 16-35CZ (a mount)

George,
Long time no see - good to have you back!
And offering up more of your wonderful scenes of traditional life in the Chinese countryside, which are likely to disappear with “modernisation”.
Love this set. How beautiful are the delicate strands of noodles looking for all the world like fine textile threads.
Hard to believe they don’t tangle and break in production.
Impossible to single out favourites for now but will revisit.
Thanks for sharing.

PS: the ones that stand out for me are #2, a hopeful indication that this tradition will be passed on and not replaced by machinery, #5 with that eye contact through the mesh of strands, #7 looking like a loose linen weave, and #8 with the noodles being wound onto those frames.

Great scenes and lovely photography as usual. All excellent. #2 a winner for being super-cute as well, but favourites are 6 and 7.

Only my opinion, but with a crop left and top I think #6 would look fabulous. You'd lose a little bit but gain a lot.

A fascinating series of a very photogenic process, hard to pick favourites so I won't, they all work really well together as a story showing how the whole village seems to work together in what looks like a time honoured tradition, super work.
You win or you learn, I seem to be doing a lot of learning....

Wonderful set of images George!
These traditional ways of doing things and living life are very appealing in so many ways. You captured that kind of lifestyle very well.
You have captured noodles very well and I am sure it wasn't that easy as the light plays main role here. If they havn't been captured backlit they may have looked like big white linen sheets or something similar but instead they look like the sea of finest silk threads bathing in sun.
Small suggestion would be for #6: crop the top of image so there is no building visible at all.

Thank you for sharing,
Svjetlana

Wow - in the category of "I had no idea..."
Great last shot, perfect end to the series!

#5 - a bit of mystery, an imagined story, nicely composed
