    Do you want references? UPDATED with Fourth batch

    Recently I had the opportunity to accompany a good friend of mine to a place here in beijing known in english as the Bamboo Park. There I took something on the order of 180 reference photos of a wu shu lesson that was in session.

    I used a highspeed canon SLR camera to catch the people going through the various motions of their weapons sets, and some photos of their weaponless sets. I've also included a few bust photos of their Master, who was gracious enough to give me permission to sit in on his lessons, and encouraged his students to put on a good show so I could get some good life sketching and photos out of my trip there.

    I've got a poll here (that I hope is working). If there are enough votes for yes I'll post all of the images up here for you all to pick and snatch as you choose, if there aren't enough votes then this thread can just peter out.

    The reason I'm not posting these in the "references" section is because much like the rest of the forum (outside the lounge) that board is greatly neglected by the vast majority of the people here.

    Here are a couple samples to help you decide if you want the rest of the photos.

    Happy voting!

    My browser got a slowdown and I voted on the wrong option so disregard it! I've been drawing whu-shu poses for a while now of an old book with stick figures on it, so this would be a huge improvement.

    You asked for em, so you got em. let me know what you think.

    Grafguy Don't you think it'd be easier for everyone to access if they could just click one link, see the images they want, and save them individually? rather than downloading a half, or a third gig zip file just to find out they don't want half the images?

    There's more to come if I get good response to these, or if it's asked of me. My connection here is quite slow. Supposed to be a 2mb broadband connection, but acts more like the ancient 56kbps connections from when I was a young'n.

    The polls are turning out pretty good, so tomorrow if I've got some extra time I'll be posting up another batch of photos from the same session and see how people like them. I can't post them all up at one time because of my bandwidth limitations, but I'm happy to post up what I can.

    If you like the photos then by all means let me know, I'm going out photographing with my friend, so if you've got any suggestions or ideas for snaps I'll see what I can do for you.

    Wow, I didn't even realize I had posted images of myself stretching, and my fat British friend grinning like an idiot. Yay!

    Zulu - There was some tai chi stuff going on there as well, good eye.

    Hmm.. i was going to add some more photos to this little collection, but for some reason every time i'd get about 5 or 6 or so uploaded, then try to upload the seventh, or whatever number it was in that area, suddenly the previous ones i'd uploaded would just disappear.. weird.

    Hey Dile man! Long time no see! You still using yahoo? Where you living now, I heard you moved somewhere to the states...?

    Here's another attempt at uploading those refs

    OH DAMNIT. this is starting to piss me off. somehow some of the refs were doubled up, so sorry for the double posted images. I've removed them.
