Mid-Autumn Festival

DSCN4862

Mid-Autumn Festival in China means mooncakes, exchanged and eaten or regifted. I got a couple from my school. Since I learned they’re 1000 calories, more or less, I’ve given mine away to the homeless. Above there are gift bags full of sets of mooncakes.

Theme Day: Ruined and Rusted

Each month City Daily Photo bloggers post a photo that’s inspired by the group’s theme. This September the theme is Rusted and Ruined. The bronze above certainly is rusted. Some might argue that it’s not ruined, but I wouldn’t use it. It’s a ceremonial vessel called a ding.

Travel Theme: Edge

All kinds of edges

All kinds of edges

This week Ailsa of Where’s My Backpack? asks bloggers to post photos inspired by “Edge.” This piece of artwork (huh? you call that art?) is all edge in my estimation. It was at the National Chinese Museum of Art.

If you would like to join in with your own interpretation (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:

  1. Create your own post and title it Travel theme: Edge
  2. Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
  3. Get your post in by next Thursday, as the new travel theme comes out on Friday
