China . . . in Red

China in RedBeijing | Shanghai | Xi’an | Zhangjiajie | Changsha | Hong Kong

19 days, 15,400 miles, 8 airports, 2 bus stations, 4 public subway systems, too many boat & taxi rides to count, never once asking for a fork, 1 suitcase that lost a wheel and over 2000 photos taken.

A trip of a lifetime to be sure.  I’m furiously going through photos and still adjusting to the time change.  This trip, I experimented with color and captured as many red things as possible.  I thought of trying many colors, but it was too overwhelming!

Left to right, top to bottom:

The Bird’s Nest, Beijing | Chinese Flag, Shanghai | Cherry Blossom Art, Dirt Market, Beijing | Hutong Tour, Beijing | Fish in Shanghai | Tourists on the Great Wall | Airport, Changsha | Gondolas through the Fog on Tianmen Mountain, Zhangjiajie | Bikes on City Wall, Xi’an | Terracotta Warriors, Xi’an | Central MTR Station, Hong Kong | Wishes in Trees, Tianmen Mountain, Zhangjiajie | Pudong Skyline, Shanghai | Sign at Tian Tian Buddha, Hong Kong | Lanterns on City Wall, Xi’an | Fruit Salesman, Beijing | Shopping Bag, Shanghai | Dipping Our Toes in the South China Sea, Hong Kong.

  1. Wow Nat – I cannot wait to see what you do with these photos! I love the red theme, and the photo of your feet :)

    P.S. – thanks so much for your comment today – we couldn’t be happier!

    • Thanks! It really changed the way I take pictures. I took pictures of a lot of random red things I don’t think I normally would have stopped for. It turned out really well!

  2. Lovely idea to go with photos with one special color and really like the layout you posted them in.

    Just came over from Elise’s blog. Love your blog design by the way. :) Sabine

    • Thanks Sabine! It was really fun taking the photos – I feel like I took pictures of more random things I otherwise wouldn’t have captured. Thanks for the compliment!
