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 crabs and all above is true “Chinese take-out.”

This week Ailsa’s challenging bloggers to share photos that are purple, my favorite color. Here’s one of the light show downtown. It’s one of the highlights of life in Jinan. All ages come by to enjoy the music, lights and dancing water.

I’m not sure of the purpose of this wheel, but it adds atmosphere.

I walk around this spring east of Daming Lake about three times a week. So peaceful, yet energizing.
