garm of shekou

I am away for a while with the photoblog posting older photos on autopilot, but I will try to check in whenever I can to post shots from my current trip.

I took this shot today taking a short cut through some back alleys in the Port of Shekou (蛇口码头) in China. I came across this dog who growled and then said some words in Cantonese which loosely translate as, "you shall not pass gweilo." The fact that the dog was speaking made me realise that he was probably a distant relative of Garm, the famous dog of Farmer Giles’, and it also made me realise that it was perhaps best to go another way - which is exactly what I did.
