Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign, #2

In Zibo, Shandong, China

This foreign fellow is on display at the Pottery Museum in Zibo.

Shards of China

Shards

In class we’re learning about fragments, so this seemed fitting.  Sometimes jewelry or decorative boxes are made of such pieces.

Nanjing Memorial

Sculpture at the Peace Memorial, Nanjing

Here’s a sculpture at the Nanjing Peace Memorial in honor of all the victims of the Rape of Nanjing. The memorial itself is a good way to honor all who suffered while emphasizing a commitment to peace.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

A Market in Cambodia

Since I was invited to speak at a conference in Cambodia in February, I thought I’d go with photos from my last visit there.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

Silhouette was the City Daily Photo theme for October so what are the odds of seeing it here on WordPress. I did find this though from a trip to Nanjing.

Sepia Saturday

My other blog is feeling up with photos, so I’m moving my Sepia Saturday entries over here.

This week we have some uniformed police officers from Ireland to inspire us.

Dr. Cary T. Grayson and Captain Edward McCauley, Jr., 1919

I’m going with the uniforms and offering the photo above from the Woodrow Wilson Library.  The captain’s sword looks like it’s stuck in his coat pocket. The captain looks more congenial than the serious doctor. That’s my take. What’s yours?
