This pair just looks tired. They aren’t going to nod off necessarily, but they look tired of each other.

Theme Day: Photo of the Year


Not the best photo, but I love how people use the lakes in Beijing in the winter

The January tradition for City Daily Photo is for bloggers to share their favorite photo of the previous year. I knew immediately it would be these cuties, whom I saw at the ancient village of Zhujiayu.

If you want to see more Photos of the Year, check out City Daily Photo.

(I need a better lens to capture this action well. I’ve taken better photos, but this activity just gives me joy, especially when it’s brutally cold outside.)


Theme Day: Nature

CDP Theme Day


If you can embrace winter and go out and find thrills on the ice, you’re “loving life,” which is City Daily’s February theme.

July Theme Day: Look Down


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: Beauty of Simplicity


This month’s City Daily Photo theme is the Beauty of Simplicity and what could be more beautiful and simple than an ancient cup made of clay?

March Theme Day: Where I Belong


In Sugar & Spice café

This March City Daily Photo bloggers are asked to ponder and post on the idea of “Where do I belong?” Even though last month’s prompt was “Coffee House” I will say I feel quite at home in a not too noisy coffee house sipping a hot drink and writing. That’s the life!

CDP Theme Day: Aging

February’s theme day for City Daily Photo bloggers is: What Would You Miss?

Without a doubt I would miss the Chinese neighborhoods that have been beautifully restored to their former glory. This one is in Southwest Beijing, a favorite stomping ground..
