This month’s theme is friends or friendship so I’m sharing this painting a hutong neighborhood, where friends gather all the time. That’s a big reason I’m draw to the hutongs, so much conviviality.

Theme Day: Music

August’s theme for City Daily Photo is music. You can see more musical interpretations by clicking here.

Southwest of Tiananmen Square (nearest subway station – Hepingmen) is a traditional neighborhood, much of which has been restored. There you’ll find a block or two dedicated to selling traditional instruments. If you’re lucky, you’ll hear some musicians playing.

Buddha

In April City Daily Photo bloggers are challenged to share photos of “One Color.” I’m not sure what to call this color. Before cooking, the pumpkin was orange and now it’s more brown, but not exactly brown. I guess it’s golden orange.

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.

(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.)

December CDP Theme Day

Santa bearing gifts in Beijing at a mall

It’s fitting that December’s theme is gift. Here’s a scroll one of my classes gave me. One of the students, whom the others thought was the best calligrapher made it.

I’m posting this online to get a translation. I’ll update this when I get it. I do believe it’s a positive
