The Bell Tower


Can’t believe I’ve never been to the Bell Tower, which rang out the hours of the day for Beijingers as far back as the 13th century. I really like the plaza out front and the walk up the street towards the tower.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

Restored in 2010

Prince Gong’s Mansion, above, was under restoration in 2010 when I first tried to see it. Here it is, open and all bright and spiffy in 2012.

New to The Daily Post? Whether you’re a beginner or a professional, you’re invited to get involved in our Weekly Photo Challenge to help you meet your blogging goals and give you another way to take part in Post a Day / Post a Week. Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

1. Each week, we’ll provide a theme for creative inspiration. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog anytime before the following Friday when the next photo theme will be announced.

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 a “postaday2012″ or “postaweek2012″ tag.

3. Subscribe to The Daily Post so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements. Sign up via the email subscription link in the sidebar or RSS.
