Grand Opening Bouquet
November’s word is: Ethereal, which is hard for me because what I like best about Beijing is all the buildings and art that’s lasted for centuries. Still this bouquet won’t last though others will spring with the next new shop to open.
If you’re curious about other ephemeral photos, check out more at City Daily Photo’s gallery.
For May’s theme of Revolution, I’m posting a sculpture of Chinese revolutionaries. They represent “everyday” people rather than the big names.

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..

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.

City Daily Photo’s October theme is Movement, which can be tricky to photograph. Above I found some Uighyr dancers in Beihai Park.

I had no VPN for my Internet starting Weds. So I missed the City Daily Photo May Theme Day: Squares. While I don’t qualify for the gallery, I did find a good example of squares in these mosaic tiles by the Beijing Zoo.

At City Daily Photo April begins with the theme: triangles. This was trickier than I thought. Lots of squares, rectangles and circles around here, but few triangles. Then I realized these bike spokes make triangles, right? They’ll have to do.
For more triangles in this theme check out City Daily Photo.
City Daily Photo is kicking off March with the theme “People in the Street.” In my neighborhood there are some delightful people who work on the street. It can’t be easy in all kinds of weather to sell fruit, veggies, hot meals or offer to fix shoes or mend clothes. Yet they’re there, rain or shine usually with a smile.

February’s theme is so inviting I couldn’t resist posting another entry. Here’s a classic Chinese gateway in a park in southwest Beijing. Numerous entry way’s can be seen on City Daily Photo.
For January 1st, CDP photographers are choosing to post their “Best Photo of the Year.” I’ve chosen this photo of a smiling woman doing a Uighyr dance in Baide Park on a polluted day. Though the sky was contaminated with smog, this group danced away. I leave it to you to interpret the meaning.
