Skylines

Once I started going through old photos for skylines I found I couldn’t stop. To keep the post a moderate length I put them into a slide show. These are all from China, but taken over several years and representing a variety of cities.

  • Waterfront in Qingdao.
  • Kites flying on the waterfront in Qingdao.
  • Another view of Qingdao, this time looking down.
  • Chongqing through the mist.
  • Boats and bridges as well as buildings define the skyline of Chongqing.
  • The Bund in Shanghai, viewed from a boat on the Huangpu River.
  • Looking the other way: a view of the ultra modern Pudong skyline in Shanghai from a boat on the Huangpu River.
  • The pagoda of White Emperor City on the Yangtze River with the Wu mountains of the Qu Gorge (western most of the Three Gorges) behind it.
  • Old and new on a peaceful morning looking out at the new city of Fengdu (relocated because of the construction of the Three Gorges Dam) from the ancient Fengdu Ghost City temple complex.
  • A view of Xi'an from the top of the Great Goose Pavilion.
  • The Forbidden City in central Beijing, photo taken from the Jingshan (coal hill) park.
  • The Great Wall of China snakes along the skyline for many miles, this view is of the Mutianyu section, north of Beijing.
  • Construction cranes at the Beijing Capital Airport and the mountains beyond it at sunset.
  • A fairytale view on a smoggy morning in Weifang, Shandong Province, China.
  • Sunrise in Penglai, Shandong Province.

A kaleidoscope of a month

A few pictures from my September. A month that is neither summer nor fall. It’s had some beautiful weather, some smoky weather, some rain

I’ve been quite depressed this month. I’m reclusive by nature so the on-going near quarantine mostly hasn’t bothered me. But our cat is ailing, the three ring circus in DC is wearing on my nerves, and I usually am getting ready to go or am on my way to China at this time of the year. Right now I am starting to wonder if I will ever see my son again (he lives in China). There just isn’t anything to look forward to…
