Ok. Like you are such a great photographer! Seriously! I´ve been to the forbidden city a couple times with my camera, and didn´t get magic in my colors like you did. You just have a natural eye for estethic.
And speaking of cameras... I bought a new one yesterday. Maybe almost as cool as yours. Canon Eos 60D. I didn´t want the 7D after all, it was so heavy, I wouldn´t have been carrying it around. So now all I have to do is read the manual, and start taking smashing pictures, just like you! :-)
Did you get to the Antique market too?


Really Cool Pics....

gorgeous colors... amazing detail and design... hmmmm... it will be interesting to see if and how it influences your creative juices and your new art... look forward to seeing it!


Old buildings have so many cool details, thanks for sharing.



I had not seen all these pictures. Looks like a wonderful adventure. Would love to hear more about it. My kids were envious when they saw the pictures. Love all the colors!

I love your clocks! Found them at a small boutique close to home and I go in every other week to look at them. I'm hoping I win the give away so I can buy one for me and one for my sister!
