Weekly Photo Challenge: Alphabet (Chinese Character)

This week’s DP Photo Challenge is Alphabet.

I have said quite a few times that the recent challenges are quite difficult for me.

Born and raised in an area where we do not have Alphabets, this challenge also proves difficult for me.

The Chinese characters are not made up of a string of characters and the sound of the characters are not made up from the sound of the constituent alphabets.IMG_1458

We are only three weeks away from the New Year day of the Year of the Monkey!

Here is a character which means Fortune, but here part of the character is removed and replaced by the head of the monkey.

Hope you like it!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Circle ( Moon Gate)

This week’s DP theme for the Photo Challenge is Circle.

Not quite sure what to submit.

The photo was taken in the West Lake, Hangzhou, China.DSCF6454A

It shows a circular moon gate which is an important element in the architecture for Chinese courtyard or garden.

It signifies an entrance to the courtyard of the rich.

This may not be the best picture in my archive, I will need to go through it to see if there is a better picture.
