Change comes like a little wind that ruffles the curtains at dawn, and it comes like a stealthy perfume of wildflowers hidden in the grass.

It was like being inside a live impressionist painting.

"Located on highway 49 a few miles south of Sonora, Chinese Camp is best known for its Tong wars especially the one that occurred on September 26, 1856. It pitted about 900 members of the Yan-Woo Tong against roughly 1200 members of the Sam Yaps Tong. Tong wars seemed to be the traditional way of settling differences among the Chinese miners. It was understood guns were not to be used. Instead, this battle was fought with pitchforks, rakes and other mining and farm tools. Shortly after the fight began, lawmen put a stop to it but only after four Chinese had been killed and many wounded. It's obvious how the town came by its name as it is estimated as many as five thousand Chinese populated the town at one time. Many of the buildings no longer stand but there is plenty that remains to make a visit most interesting."

Shot for Weekend Assignment 'in the kitchen' theme.


Studio 26 flash assignment: both bowl shots were taken in a light tent, there was fairly strong window light coming in from the right side and the left side was slightly shadowed. To even out the lighting I used flash at 1/128 power through a home made snoot coming through the left side of the tent.

I shot this dragon during Chinese New Year celebrations in Paris' Chinatown.

The digital effect makes the photo just like a Chinese painting.

Chinese rose bloomed on the window in my job.


I've been told these lovely, drooping blooms are Chinese Lanterns but they are quite different from the familiar.

I visited Sydney's Chinese garden recently. As it's in winter, trees lost a lot of leaves. This one is from the end of autumn. Full of leaves and sun coming through.

The Chinese lantern plant is basically a herbaceous perennial that can live up to an age of three years. This unique plant has some great qualities apart from its looks. It has the ability to withstand extremely low temperatures exceeding even more than -40C.


Ironically the Chinese lantern plant is not native to the country of China. It was first discovered in Japan. It gets its name from the unique fruit that it produces. The fruit is shaped like a balloon and has a papery texture. It is red in color and known as the calyx. In terms of its appearances it looks exactly like the Chinese lantern craftwork.

The Beijing National Aquatics Center, also officially known as the National Aquatics Center, and colloquially known as the Water Cube, is an aquatics center that was built alongside Beijing National Stadium in the Olympic Green for the swimming competitions of the 2008 Summer Olympics. Despite its nickname, the building is not an actual cube, but a cuboid (a rectangular box). After the Olympics, the building underwent a 200 million Yuan revamp to turn half of its interior into a water park.

Chinese Garden at the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens. Inspired by the centuries-old Chinese tradition of private gardens designed for scholarly pursuits, Liu Fang Yuan, or the Garden of Flowing Fragrance, combines the scenic beauty of nature with the expressiveness of literature to give deeper meaning to the landscape. A walk through its paths enriches the mind and spirit alike. The Huntington—with its renowned collections of art, rare books, manuscripts, and plants—was founded on this same philosophy by Henry E. Huntington in 1919.


The garden’s name, Liu Fang Yuan, has both literal and symbolic meanings. The words liu fang, or “flowing fragrance,” refer to the scent of flowers and trees, including the pine, lotus, plum, and other native Chinese plants found here. The Chinese poet Cao Zhi (192–232) first used the words in his “Rhapsody on the Luo River Goddess” to describe how the fragrance of flowers trailed in the goddess’s wake as she walked among the scented flora. And liu fang echoes the name of famed Ming dynasty painter Li Liufang (1575–1629), known for his refined landscapes.

........The structure was imported piece by piece from Shanghai, and then reconstructed by craftsmen from China. There are 200 dragons on the wooden and marble structure with a mixture of stunning gold, red, green and the Chinese Royal colour of yellow. The archway stands at 15m high, which makes it the largest Chinese Arch outside China.

The non-native Chinese Pistache trees in Sacramento are just at peak. I've always wanted to capture the glowing backlit leaves against the black trunks and branches.


The Chinese were the first to put water in a container of cut flowers. So, while the Chinese were arranging flowers aesthetically in a container, the rest of the world was braiding garlands, making wreaths and flinging petals.. Japan grasped the vision of combining cut flowers, water and containers from China with such enthusiasm and inspiration that different schools of flower arrangement art emerged with masters who created philosophies and, design principles sprang into existence. The Japanese culture expanded flower arrangement into a meditative practice, which had its roots in beliefs and philosophies. Flower arrangement as well in China as in Japan became an art form that inspired contemplation and transcended decorative and devotional functions

Straight out of the camera, direct RAW conversion. I was trying out bulb shots during my recent visit to the Chinese Garden as the place wasn't as well-lit as usual. This piece was shot at around 150 seconds at f/16.

Chinese pagodas (Chinese: 塔; pinyin: Tǎ) are a traditional part of Chinese architecture. In addition to religious use, since ancient times Chinese pagodas have been praised for the spectacular views which they offer, and many famous poems in Chinese history attest to the joy of scaling pagodas.
