2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.

December Theme Day: Worker

Rather late this month. I almost forgot! Here’s a worker selling snacks on Food Street off of Wangfujing Street. I’d never touch grilled squid, but plenty of folks seem to love it.

Eyeglasses

If you’re ever in Beijing, or anywhere in China — get glasses. Either bring your prescription or take an eye exam here. Progressive bifocals are $50 and single vision can be $9 – 20.

Here you see sunglasses and the tools of the trade, but the shop has hundreds of frames to choose from. The longest wait if 2 hours to get complicated glasses made.

Travel Theme: Orange

August Theme: Take Out

Seafood to go

Seafood to go

The City Daily Photo theme for August is “take-out food.” While in China there is food delivery and take out from McDonald’s, KFC, and the like, I think street food like the seafood above is true “Chinese take-out.”
