Ocean International Center

A building in the Ocean International Center. One of three quick snaps from a taxi with my iPhone 6. Again, the tuning comes courtesy of Adobe Lightroom.

And, yep, our summer of (mostly) amazing weather continues.

The Village Square

Taken in The Village at noon last Friday, about an hour or so before Metal, Brick, and Glass. Again, with my D300 / 14 mm combo.

I hate this area. Abhor it. Full of tourists (foreign and otherwise) and trendy/chic people with whom I’ve got next to nothing in common. If it weren’t for the Apple store, or a Belgian beer pub called The Tree, I wouldn’t visit there at all. Okay, well, Blue Frog ain’t bad either, but that’s it.

The place is usually chockablock full of people. It was cool to take a photo of the square when it was relatively empty.

Young Woman in Pink

The fan in her hand is to block the sun from shining on her face. This is the same restaurant that I photographed in my last post (albeit taken about an hour earlier). I think that the restaurant was constructed in the early 1990’s, but the exterior hasn’t worn well. I’ve never been inside, so I don’t know about the interior.

27th Floor Window

Rained last night. When I got up this early this morning, the sky was once again beautiful. So, of course I grabbed my camera and headed to the rooftop.

On the way down, I took this picture of the Beijing Olympic Park Observation Tower.
