This is onion and lamb from the Xinjiang Provincial Guildhouse where you can get fine Uighyr food in Bejing.

The May City Daily Photo theme is “Let’s Eat.” In Beijing that could be the theme for the year and I’d never duplicated.

CDP Theme Day: Photo of the Year

Traditional yet Modern

2016 was the Year of the Monkey so this photo from an exhibit of Monkey theme seems like a good choice for my Beijing photo of the year.

There are lots of City Daily Photo bloggers with great theme day photos, which you can see here.

24 Hour Neighborhood Mini-Library

September’s theme for City Daily Photo bloggers is: Libraries, whichI got to choose for the group. Libraries can be modern or ancient. There’s all kinds of innovation and I liked this 24 hour auto-library.

Traditional yet Modern

I saw this menage of the modern and traditional at 798 Art Space. It’s a woman who’s got the head of the Monkey King from the legendary tale “Journey to the West.” Not sure what to make of

July Theme Day: Look Down

DSCN3528

This month’s theme is: Look Down. You can learn something when you look down.

I took a walking tour around Tiananmen Square and learned that these rectangular covers are for port-a-potties Beijing-style. When there’s an event they would open the tops and put tents over the areas for a little, very little privacy. Now I notice them around Wangfujing Street and near Qianmen Avenue.

Theme Day: Shadow & Highlight

June’s theme for City Daily Photo is: Shadows & Highlights, two key aspects of good photography.

I like cheese, but I doubt I’d be attracted to a restaurant called “Cheese Bomb.” I wish them well and if someone I respected said the food was good, I’d go, but otherwise I’ll just admire the mural.
