Hats, ancient and modern. They had more pizzazz in the past, methinks, though that last one looks uncomfortable.

Ailsa of Where’s My Backpack challenges photobloggers with a theme this week. This week she’s asked, “Can you find a photo that feels understated, suggestive, subtle in its use of color?” If you would like to join in (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:

  • Create your own post and title it Travel theme: Hats
  • Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
  • Get your post in by next Thursday, as the new travel theme comes out on Friday
  • Don’t forget to subscribe to keep up to date on the latest weekly travel themes. Sign up via the email subscription link in the sidebar or RSS!

Special Exhibit: Buddhist Relics, Shandong Provincial Museum

I’m not one for bungee jumping or sky diving. My adventure today was to take some new friends to the Shandong Provincial Museum where we saw this magnificent relic holder in an exhibit of artifacts. I was blown away by this majestic object.

Imperial Robes

Jennifer Nichols Wells runs terrific photo challenges. This week’s is “blue.” Thus I offer a majestic robe from ancient China. Such embroidery!

You can see more lavish blues here.

It feels good to be blogging again. I’d had some trouble with annoying pop-up ads on Chrome or Firefox. Knock on wood, the internet has been tamed for now and I’ll be back in business.
