Ever since I saw the movie Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story for the first time, I have wanted to see the statue of Bruce Lee that is shown at the end of film. Mission accomplished.

Last week, my wife and I went down to southern China for my wife’s visa interview to go to the States. During the break between her medical and the actual visa interview we took a trip to Hong Kong. One of my goals while in Hong Kong was to do some night photography. On this particular evening, my wife and I had met up with a friend from my time in Sichuan. We had a nice dinner, and then went back to his place. As soon as I saw this view from the balcony I knew I had to make a picture.
I like to edit photos of warm places on cold winter days in Northeast China. This photo was shot last summer during my honeymoon in Bali. If you are ever in Bali and want to catch the sunrise, Sanur is a good place to do it.

Last Monday I got a day off to celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival. My wife and I decided to go somewhere we hadn’t visited before, Lushun. Lushun is a small town just south of Dalian that is somehow still considered part of the city of Dalian. The main attractions in Lushun are old Russian forts from the Russo-Japanese war and Baiyu mountain. The bus dropped us off next to Baiyu Mountain, so we decided to head to top to see what we could see.

Today is a good day. I just found out that my image, The Pagoda on the Lake, has made it into the Plus One Collection III photo book. Photographers from all over the world submitted images.
