February’s theme day for City Daily Photo bloggers is: What Would You Miss?

Without a doubt I would miss Chinese traditional markets if they disappeared. I do worry that the supermarket might replace these charming open air markets.

October Theme Day: Movement

City Daily Photo’s October theme is Movement, which can be tricky to photograph. Today we saw a small group of musicians today in a park. This flutist shows movement, maybe not as much as an athlete or dancer, but it counts.

March Theme Day: People on the Street

Get it while it's hot

City Daily Photo is kicking off March with the theme “People in the Street.” In my neighborhood there are some delightful people who work on the street. It can’t be easy in all kinds of weather to sell fruit, veggies, hot meals or offer to fix shoes or mend clothes. Yet they’re there, rain or shine usually with a smile.

To see more interpretations of the theme, check out City Daily Photo.

Theme Day: Creative Artisan

Not only is May 1st a City Daily Photo theme day, it’s also May Day a holiday in China that means massive crowds. As a dedicated CDP blogger, I summoned my patience and headed downtown to find an artisan. I had one in mind, but he’s disappeared from his usual spot. Fortunately, I happened upon this painter.

September Theme Day: People Watching

Learning to Skate

I love watching these kids learn to skate in Quen Cheng Square, Downtown.

The moms love watching too.

September’s theme is people watching a great activity anywhere, but especially in China were there’s such diversity of clothes and, for me, culture.

As there’s some difficulties with the City Daily Photo portal, you can see the entries for this theme on Facebook, on the CDP Page.
