Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Blue & Yellow


Each week Cee of Cee’s Photography challenges bloggers with a fun prompt. This week we’re to find photos with blue and yellow in them. I tried to find something with these colors yesterday and saw nothing. Outside it’s brown, gray and white. My home doesn’t feature these colors so I almost gave up. Today I found these windows, which I saw in Phnom Penh.

Ailsa of Where’s My Backpack offers photographers inspiration each week. This week she gave us the theme Merchandise, which lets me share more market photos! She also shared some apt quotes which I’ve copied below as they always enrich the theme.

If you want to join in with your own interpretation of this week’s theme (everyone’s welcome!) Here’s what to do:

  1. Create your own post and title it Travel theme: Merchandise
  2. Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
  3. Get your post in by next Thursday, as the new travel theme comes out on Friday
  4. 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!
  5. You know the value of every article of merchandise, but if you don’t know the value of your own soul, it’s all foolishness. – Rumi

    Junk is the ideal product… the ultimate merchandise. – William S. Burroughs

Looking Up?

Ah, since leaving Macau, and maybe since leaving Phnom Penh, life’s been one hassle after another. In short, I lost a brand new digital SRL camera on a plane, had my visa rejected in Hong Kong and faced a lot of hassle and expense fixing that so I could get back into China before school starts on Monday.

I was forced to go to Shenzhen, a horrid, dirty, dismal city to get a flight to Jinan. I’m completely “shindoi” which is Japanese Kansai dialect for “tired, body and soul.” Now I’m back in Jinan, but busy preparing for Monday and helping the new teachers settle in. Believe it or not all of them had flight delays due to the high level of pollution. In fact, the airlines had four of them just take the train here.

You know something’s wrong if the airlines want you to take a train.

I’ll provide details tomorrow or the next day.
