Blast of Chinese Outskirts

Daily walks are really popular around here and infact you can see all kinds of people on their way to something. On their way to or from work, back home from a grocery expedition, chilling along with other family members, coming back from school or even on a bike ride since the wide sidewalk is alined to the cycling path; in addition others are waiting or getting off the train on the old railway track in line with the cycling path.

Neighbor colors and patterns.

Wandering and browsing around my neighbor makes me feel very energetic and happy. There are plenty of colorful stuff to look at, some traditional some modern. I m in love with both and with the taste of balance which you can see thru them. Cool and positive traditions should be noticed carefully and enjoyed as much as possible because they represents the projection of human beings to create a healthy society. There is lots to see every time i go downtown and watch the people and the places. they ar never the same, there is always some tiny difference, some improvement or something to discard. Usually i have iPhone on hand but every time i promise myself to bring the high quality camera with zoom and great lens. Hope you will enjoy these quick shots took on a rushey afternoon weekend break.

A common “drink and snacks grocery” located at street level. The order is nice to watch.

Somebody is going for a delivery soon, it’s tea-time. Somebody else is going for a city walk.

Somebody else is going for a city walk.

There is usually lots of work in progress on the streets. Holes, wooden tables resembling tiny bridges on sidewalk, workers busy to fix and crash pieces of cement or other materials. we actually live in a no stop legoland!

It’s really fantastic to roam inside the small streets too, they normally connect two main roads or have a dead end. They carry some interesting details of some job at some point. Like a wooden ladder left on a wall. Or a bike, well, a classic here. Or a table with the today menu for a lunch set or dinner.

There is much wore to visualize, some windows, some other street scene with people. It’s a great neighbor, very lively fun and energetic. Here are some people and a street seller with its treasures for the sewing box. Finally again the order of the colors, a detail of neatness.

 

Three May pictures

While planning vocational movements i m posting for you a sample of random visual searches. This is in China but in somewhere unknown to me at the moment. I used this image to promote a peaceful and spiritual event happened last night far away on the other southern corner of Eurasia, in Italy.

That event was hosted more less in the area dotted with white houses beyond the sea horizon, on the far left corner of this happy image, where children are playing free on a beach during an afternoon of end of Summer last year. I captured them while going back home after a wonderful sea swim. It reminded me of my childhood and how beautiful it is to take advantage of the nature when we have Her so close. We shall never take Nature for granted and enjoy each and every drop of what she openly dispense wherever we live.

Just like this bear is cautiously doing!

 

Fibers & beans…and dragons!

Hope your spirits are high and shining for the new year, the Lunar Year of the dragon. I grew up with a dragon daddy and I know how genially strong they can be at times these personalities and the core of their heart is extremely soft and sensitive, hope you will have good luck with all the dragons on your way. 🙂

Now we get ready for welcoming the new year, I m really excited for all the wonders on the new path. Between December and January I didn’t expect to receive such amazing kitchen aids like a true centrifugal juicer (the old one has gone already after about 3 years only 😦 ) , a fantastic rice cooker and a Chinese dessert maker… only to name three of them. 
Did you ever had a bean dessert? In Asia they are super popular. The creamy ones only require water & beans: soya milk, rice milk, chacha, sesame, walnut and almonds desserts, all fibers boosters. Fibers support the face radiance. I m sure wherever you are you would love to try these flavorful and comfortable delicacies!
