Ailsa of Where’s My Backpack invites bloggers to post travel photos each week. This time she’s given us “Meeting Places” for a theme. One of the conspicuous sites to meet in Jinan is Quancheng Square, by the big blue sculpture.

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 (a new post!) 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 the “postaday″ tag. 3. Follow The Daily Post so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements, and subscribe to our newsletter – we’ll highlight great photos from each month’s most popular challenge.

Travel Theme: Purple

Fountain-Light Show

Fountain-Light Show

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.

City Symbol, at Night



Not far from DaMing Lake. They’re restoring this area.

Mill? Wheel?


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.

A Good Day for a Swim


Here’s another way to celebrate summer, though these guys swim most of the year.

Dive in!

July Theme Day: Celebrating Summer


This month’s City Daily Photo prompt is celebrating summer. This summer the World Cup predominates. Several malls, like Parc 66, have big displays for the World Cup.

How or what do you celebrate in summer? (Or if you’re in the southern hemisphere, winter?)

To see more summer celebrations, check out City Daily Photo.

Big Girl


A big inflated girl in front of the new mall. Sure got my attention
