Some of the more interesting photos/videos that I (and a friend of mine) took, or those that I assisted on uploading. I may upload more in the future if I have time to get around to categorize them on Commons. Mostly shot on my phone and a DJI drone.

Feel free to leave me a message if you want to request any photos.

It's a shock to me that there's a surprising lack of pictures of Chinese food on Commons (and articles on Wikipedia).

Public transitEdit

Harbin and central JilinEdit

View the trip in Commons category.

"Ice and Snow World" of Harbin in -30 degrees Celcius.

Rime IslandEdit

An island where you see rime. I've been there 3 times but I haven't seen it once, it's pure luck. Ironically, on my way back home, a wave of cold front brought rime alongside the railroad where it otherwise won't have any. Not uploading any of the railroad rime pictures due to poor quality.
