Weekly Photo Challenge: Adventure


The U.S. army or Marines once had an ad campaign more or less saying “This is not a job it’s an adventure.” As our first year students march and shout, I’m glad I don’t have to partake of this adventure. I was surprised to hear them on Saturday of a long weekend at 6:45 am.

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.

Theme Day 2, Entry

February’s City Daily Photo theme is entry and I love the doors in China.

Here’s the entry to Walmart, so I’m going rather modern. In the winter stores like this hang a sort of blanket/curtain on the doors to keep in the heat.

A favorite theme day posts


Today is Mid-Autumn Festival in China and the common gift is mooncakes. Above you see the ones my school gave me. Throughout the neighborhood there are vendors selling these cakes, which I’ve learned can be used as a secondary currency creating problems of corruption.

I don’t like the one’s with bean paste, but the nut-filled ones are okay. The trick for me is to eat about a quarter of a cake a day. They’re pretty heavy and the sweetness can get excessive.

Authentic Tea

Chinese tea served authentically

We all know who discovered and refined tea, the Chinese. Yesterday a friend and I were invited for tea at a Communist training center. This big wig, who’s also an artist, poured us cup after little cup of Chinese tea. Note how they warm the pot by pouring water all over the outside of it.
