Chopsticks and Travel Shoes

Hi, I'm glad you stopped by.

My name is Lizbeth. Grab a panda and join me as I leave Las Vegas in pursuit of adventure in China's tea houses, classrooms, dirt roads, and industrial cities. I shoot with a Nikon D3100 and am sharing my journey through it's lens.

Share with me, talk to me, ask me: Feel free to leave any questions or thoughts in the ask box below.

Day 3 - Clouds

Clouds and blue skies are not common in Chengdu. Instead, we have a tarp of grey that blankets the city both day and night. The locals often say that on off days when the sun does find an opening through the grey, dogs gather and bark towards the sky in response to such an unfamiliar sight. 

I took the photo below earlier this afternoon from my dorm room window. The buildings on the right, which actually aren’t that far in the distance, begin to fade under an aesthetically displeasing sky.

I took this photo from atop a pedestrian bridge in Chengdu’s shopping district. Not much difference in the colors above.

Luckily, the countryside still offers big fluffy clouds and beautiful blue skies.
