Cee’s Which Way Challenge

Prince Gong’s Palace Complex

Here’s my first entry for Cee’s Which Way Challenge where bloggers post a photo that shows a way, e.g. a road, path, bridge, etc.

Above you see a short path cutting though a patch of bamboo at Prince Gong’s Palace in Beijing. This palace is a less crowded, smaller version of the Forbidden City. A nice place to visit when you don’t have 3 hours or you want to avoid crowds.

(Does anyone else get annoyed with the autocorrection forever changing Cee to See?)

Museums are delightfully silent, for the most part

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 Wednesday 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 posts. Add Media photos from each month’s most popular challenge.

Just a few wonderful posts:

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge

Each week Cee of Cee’s Photography challenges bloggers with a fun prompt. This week we’re to find photos of subjects that have an O and a U in the word.  Oh, my, that’s a challenge.

Well, how about photos of Melbourne, where I traveled last January?

Sepia Saturday 400 Header : 6 January 2018

This week I’ll dig around and share some family portraits I’ve found. First a couple of my family.

You may notice the funny glasses and the kids in what look like garbage bags. One of our traditions is to exchange gag gifts. This year we all got funny glow-in-the-dark glasses. All the kids got “Sauna Suits,” which were black plastic suits that make you sweat and possibly lose weight.

Here are some photos from the Flickr Commons:
