This week’s DP photo challenge is Curve.
The structure is three dimensionally curved.
the curves look random but natural.
I am not good at photographing subjects which are abstract in nature.
They could well be my only photos which show things abstract in nature.
This week’s DP photo challenge is Seasons.
It signifies hope and live.
The second photo, which I reckon is more beautiful, was taken in XiangShan, Beijing in China.
Lastly, but not the least, the photo of Canola or Rapeseed flowers were taken in Luoping, China in early Spring.
This week’s DP theme for the photo challenge is Time.
The Great Wall has been built thousands of years ago; this is still one of the longest structures in the World.
Wish these walls could talk; so that they can tell us their stories.
I have converted them to Black and White, emphasizing the timelessness.
The original photos were taken during Autumn with some color foliage around.
The B&W, however, evoke more moods.
The next three days are public holidays for the Lunar New Year; so be prepared that there may not be any posting during the period.
The light was shining through the foliage, when we visited the HongLuo Temple in the outskirts of Beijing a couple of years ago.
I have seen many ginkgo trees before but this one was at its best with the light shining through, making the leaves more or less translucent.
Isn’t this ornate?
As different from our past visits to Beijing, the trip focused on natural rather then historical aspects of Beijing and its suburbs.
These leaves taken against a red wall in HongLuo Temple is one of my favorite photo in that trip.
Few people do not know that the Great Wall has been a boundary that kept the “barbarians” out of medieval China.
The wall now attracts visitors from all over the world.
The boundary, which gallops through hilly terrain, is an ideal place to view colored foliage during Autumn.
