A Room with a View

I live on the eleventh floor of a high rise apartment building in Jining. Most days are smoggy and things look much the same from day to day when I look out my windows. This makes me appreciate when something changes, much more so than I ever would have back home. So I take out the camera...

when the air clears

when the sun sets and the colors come through

when I can see the crescent moon at night

when I am inspired to create interpretive art while cleaning...

even if it is a bit ironic...

when the "fog" reveals its beauty in the early morning hours

when I realize that nighttime changes everything

and when there is cause to celebrate.

I'm keeping my eye out for more beautiful things in this not so beautiful place. I believe I will find what I'm looking for.
