One really fun thing to notice when traveling is how people get around. I live in an area where it seems like all the cars look pretty much the same. Here is a gallery of some of the variety I saw while visiting my son recently in a small-ish Chinese city. Click on an image to see it larger.
I really admire how many options people have beyond taking the bus and owning a full size car.
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Things People Drive
I think the South Atlantic in these pictures shows a wide variety of the colors in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge for this week: Teal, Aqua, Seafoam, Turquoise. These pictures were taken at the Volunteer Point Wildlife Refuge in the Falkland Islands.
This is a very random post in response to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge for this week. The theme is to use the photo she published,
as a starting point for a post. Mirror, power lines, clouds and reflection were what I focused on.
Power lines into a building in China.
Power lines and mist arising from the Three Gorges Dam in China.
Power lines along a street in Weifang, China.
Power lines and morning clouds near Desert Hot SPrings California.
A broken mirror found in the desert.
Mirror, mirror on the wall.
Power lines reflected in a puddle on a street in Seattle.
This is published in response to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge. These pictures were taken on the Peninsula Valdes in Argentina.
It seems to me that the funny way sea lions move on land is a crawl, since they move on their elbow and knee equivalents.
These juvenile hawks were learning to fly over their nest. The wind was so strong that they stayed over the nest, like one of those lap pools with a current.
I am continuing to go through pictures from my January trip to South America. This task has been frustrating because I am trying to make the pictures work for both a slide show (computer screen or TV screen) and in print. It seems like when I get a picture that looks like I remember it on my screen then the colors print out funny, especially blues. Does anyone else have this problem? any hints would be most welcome…especially ones that don’t require any financial outlay.
One thing that makes me aware that I am in Japan is the roofs.
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Roofs
Shanghai is the biggest busiest City I have ever been in. When I saw Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week: All about Cities:Skylines to Streets, it came immediately to mind since both its skylines and its streets are distinctive.
Passing the time of day.
View of the Huangpu River and Pudong.
Looking down and out at rooftops and skyscrapers shows the variety of buildings.
An alley in the tourist section.
Tall buildings peeking over the wall of flowers separating the street from the Bund and a man using a twig broom.
In Shanghai the river is a major component of transportation, and life. View of Pudong from the Huangpu river.
Street in an older part of town, shops and vendors narrow the street to where two cars can barely pass.
Preparing herbs and spices for sale…in the street.
