A Snapshot of Two Cities #3

18:05, 4/8/2015, Nanjing, China

So many colours! I love that there’s so much to look at and take in from this photo. It feels like Isabel has just crept up (in a non-creepy way, of course…) and quietly snapped this photo that captures the quiet side of living in China.

I quickly grabbed this photo on my way to see Dylan Moran (whoo!) at the Arts Centre in the city. I specifically wanted something quintessential about Melbourne. I think I managed okay.

A Snapshot of Two Cities is a collaborative project between myself and Isabel from Nanjing Nian. We take a photo of something that catches our eye each week and post the photos on our blogs. We hope you enjoy looking at the differences and similarities between the two cities and cultures, and also just some pretty pictures.

    I love your tram photo, Jacquie. I love the lines of the track and the power lines, and how sort of dominant the tram looks as it speeds down St Kilda Road. And those balls of light – they make me think of Dumbledore from Harry Potter and his deluminator, for some reason. Nice one! x

      Aw, thanks Isabel! I see where you’re coming from with the balls of light – very Dumbledore and his deluminator-y. x

      Thank you, Jasmine! I’m loving it myself. It’s reminding me to go outside and take more photos, which is always something I’m trying to work on. Thanks for stopping by!
