Sixi Village - 9 by DawnRoseCreation Sixi Village - 9 by DawnRoseCreation
Sixi Village

Located in the northwest of Wuyuan City in Jiangxi Province, Sixi is 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) away from the city center, which was built in the 5th year (1,199) of Qingyuan period in the Southern Song Dynasty (1,127 A.D.-1,279 A.D.), and it is surrounded by the hills on one side and water on the other, just like a diamond embedded in hills and water.

The ancient architectures and the nature environment are integrated as one perfectly, which are very picturesque with fascinating poetic imagery.

The highlight of Sixi lies in its architectures with exquisite craftsmanship in Hui-style, all of which are decorated with stone carvings, stone carvings and wood carvings, representing fully the characteristics of Hui-style architecture art.

The most well-known ancient architecture in the village is “Jingxu Hall”, which is famous because lots of scenes in the movie “Strange Tales of Liao Zhai 聊斋志异 ” - [link] are shot here, (LiaoZhai is a book written by PU Song-ling in the Qing Dynasty (1,616 A.D.-1,911 A.D.) mainly describing the amours between human and goblins.) and it is the best-preserved civilian residence in the village.

First of all.....THANKS for the ' DD ' !

and, TO ALL WHO DON'T LIKE THIS SHOTS OR THOSE WHO ASK ME A LOT QUESTION , let me explain this photo :
I'm not Chinese girl from China.
I took a plane & fly to this place last few year ago....
I just went for some photo shooting expedition at this SIXI VILLAGE, an old heritage village in China.
When I'm my way to wait for some villagers lifestyle shots, I RANDOM saw this kids playing with their toy gun.
The way they play & the gun looks real attract my lens.
The distant I took this photo is about 200mm, so it consider a fast snap shots !
I didn't walk near to them because I'm on the way to another destination.
They are just normal kids playing & in front of them is a few empty bushes.
They shoot at empty bushes, maybe they imagine tiger, lion or etc inside the bushes ? LOL
Actually beside them, a mother with a bowl of porridge , feeding them while they play.
This is just a random PHOTOJOURNALISM LIFESTYLE shots about different country, different life.
Maybe the kids in our area born with SILVER SPOON and play computer, go to air condition school, eat Mc Donald, wear clean and nicer cloth.
They just don't have that luck, so they grow up with different condition, different culture, different luck , that's all.....

You should really put that information into the description, rather that 'just' the city's history [which is still awesome to know] as it would remove people's concern and confusion. Information like what you've put in this comment, is typically what is looked for in the 'description' of an image.

It is a great capture nonetheless!

Awesome pic. And I think most of the people in disagreement didn't read the statement and understand the tie-in to the picture. Maybe think about it a lil' bit more.

The level of knee-jerk outrage in the comments is palpable. Don't be 'that' deviant, people.

(Though, seriously Lady, you might have wanted to tell something about the subject of the picture). The fact that you didn't say anything really brings down the presentation. Still, 'dorable tykes :D.
