Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting Moment

Posted on Updated on

This week’s photo challenge is fleeting moment. What exactly is a fleeting moment? It is basically a candid snapshot  or public place. The Daily Post did a spotlight on street photography a few days ago which can be viewed here: street-photography. I attempted taking candid photos around my neighborhood, but I felt somewhat like a stalker. These are the fleeting moments I captured.

I traveled to China a few years ago and captured many more fleeting moments, because I already looked out of place. It didn’t appear quite so odd to be taking photos of random activity.

A – Z Photo Challenge: X is for X-axis, XX Chromosomes, & Xmas

Posted on Updated on

I had a very difficult time finding things to fit the letter X. Finally, I looked into the dictionary and found just one page. So I needed to be creative.

X is for X-axis. This photo represents the horizontal lines of a basket.
X is for XX chromosomes, which is female. I took this photo of a woman at a park in China.
X is for Xmas, which means the Christmas holiday. This is a photo of my dog decorated in Xmas ribbons after we opened gifts. (Personally, I don’t use the Xmas expression.)

A – Z Photo Challenge: V is for Vegetables, Venture, View

Posted on

I’ve been a little busy, so it took me some time to figure out my V photos for the A – Z challenge. The only thing that came into my mind is a violin, yet I don’t play a violin. Finally, I looked in the dictionary for inspiration.

V is for Vegetables. It appears to be pumpkins and squash.
V is for Venture. I went on an exciting venture to the Great Wall of China.
V is for View. This is the view from my parent’s deck.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Hands

Posted on

This week’s photo challenge is hands, however I haven’t taken any recent photos of my own hands. I searched through my China photos and discovered hands performing different tasks.

Hands carving jade.
Hands working jade.
Hands cutting hair on the street.
Hands playing a musical instrument.
Hands pouring tea.
Here is a photo of my hand after getting a Chinese manicure.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unfocused

Posted on

This week’s photo challenge is unfocused. I went through my photos, but I don’t have too many unfocused photos because normally unfocused photos are quickly deleted on my camera and never make it onto my computer. I decided to display similar photos from a previous challenge in August, but these photos are new. I went to a acrobat show in Beijing. The photos were a little unfocused, because the people moved so quickly. It was an amazing show!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual

Posted on

This week’s photo challenge is unusual. Unusual can be anything that is not common or ordinary. I searched through my China photos again. I saw many unusual sites during my journey, however these sites may have appeared normal to people who live there.

This photo is of a huge eye chart on a building. I’m assuming the building is for eye care. 

This green bean pie from McDonald’s isn’t unusual to people who live in China, but I thought it was unusual. The treat didn’t taste very delicious to me.

I wasn’t sure if this was unusual art on the road or math equations.

I suppose the cute duck is an unusual way to show customers that the restaurant offers duck to eat.

This photo probably wouldn’t appear unusual to individuals who live in China, but I thought it was rather humorous how the undergarments were displayed. It was at a huge shopping center with everything.

Here is another photo at the shopping center. I thought the many mannequins were a little creepy. I especially liked the unusual rainbow wig mannequin.
