Father and daughter on sky bridge

I stopped off at a hardware store not far from the Zhongguancun electronics area, and then crossed over the Fourth Ring Road using the sky bridge (otherwise known as a pedestrian over-crossing). About midway across, I saw this father taking a pictures of his daughter with the Fourth Ring Road as a background. In this shot, she’d just completed a pirouette.

Starbucks, Cold Stone, and Raggedy Ann

Taken at Solana this past weekend.

Below is a close-up of Raggedy Ann. Okay, I’m aware of the Kosupure Culture In Japan, and know that she’s trying to emulate something that I cannot fathom. The thing is that she ain’t a Japanese exchange student… she’s a Chinese national who is probably well into her twenties. The wife thinks that she was dressing this way for attention, and she definitely was getting (stares and that sort of thing). Finally, my wife and I are both hopeful that this girl is wearing a wig.
