An Abandoned Fishing Village in China Becomes a Green Wonderland

What a stunning scenery!

A deserted fishing village on Shengshan island in China is slowly turning into a green wonderland as vines slowly swallow its structures.

Through time, mother nature has reclaimed one of the almost 400 islands making up Shengsi Islands located at the east of China’s coastal Zheijang province.

Villagers used to rely heavily on fishing as their primary industry. However, the fishermen opted to work on the mainland in industries such as ship building and repairing, service, shipping, light, and tourism  as it had been more economical for them.

As a result, the once thriving fishing hub now lies empty and has been transformed into a green jungle. Beautiful green vines have overtaken almost all stone buildings, old houses, and even paths creating a stunning scenery.

The green wonderland which is located a few hours east of Hangzhou Bay is strikingly different from the lively skyline of Shanghai.

An amateur photographer from Shanghai known as Jane Qing captured the picturesque sceneries in the village.

How These Men React to the New Mandatory Army Draft in Lithuania Will Move You.

Are they man enough to make a choice?

By

When Lithuania suddenly reinstated military conscription on May 11, more than 37,000 men aged 19 to 26 were shocked to see their names listed on the country’s compulsory military service. However, not all men were happy with the country’s move to boost the military’s strength.

Several Lithuanian men took to social media to express their negative sentiments on what many call as a sudden and random “lottery”. Their complaints caught the attention of  Beata Tiskevic-Hasanova, a Lithuanian actress and TV host, and Neringa Rekasiute, a Lithuanian photographer and political science student.

The pair decided to respond to their protest in an unconventional but creative way. Through a powerful photo series featuring 14 random men, aged 17 to 28, crying in military uniforms, Hasanova and Rekasiute effectively conveyed how dangerous gender expectations can be....
