Beautiful China

A stepped hillside in China, stunning greens and browns contrast against the blue of the canals dug into the side of the hill.

Feng Jiang is a PhD student at the University of York (and is a fire marshall!) and takes the most stunning photographs of China.

Is anyone else itching to knock up some code and get those beautiful pictures in a gallery to showcase them better?

Those of us who can only dream of taking such pictures could take a look at this PhotoShop tutorial, The Elegant Studio Shot, one of many pages from Tommy Maloney’s photoshopLab I’ll be investigating this weekend.

This week Alex invited me to join the Flickr group Name That Film. I’m on my second entry so far, feel free to join in and have a guess. Long time readers should find it easy. No, really. Blindingly obvious, I’d say (but then I’m useless at identifying films from stills so I’ll hush my mouth).

Talking of Flickr groups, there are some lovely pictures in Dogs with an attitude and Dog expressions (current favourite is Mommmmm, make him stop staring at me…).

Talking of dogs, anyone want to learn to play the piano? Let the Piano Pooch show you the way.

Oh and what not to name your dog (while you’re there check out the rest of Infrequently asked questions).

Right, I’m off to make some salad for supper. Mmm….

    OMG! Don’t get me going on the Flickr dog pools – I can spend days there and never come out for food or friends. Love it and the China photo set is magnificent.

    The China photos just floored me. Thanks for that link! I looked at the film still group and slunk away in shame. . . I’ll have to go back and try again.

    Thanks for the dog shots. I’m giggling my rear quarters off. The piano lesson was quite gratifying too.

    And, of course, the China shots were outstanding, but I keep gravitating to dogs.

    I think the China shots are also in Flickr now… not sure though but … oh it was late… some Flickr based website… spotted a photo and thought “OHH that’s those ones of China”… maybe.. late… tired.
