i can't believe it's been nearly 9 months since chris returned from china and i have yet to share a single one of his beautiful images with you all. geezz. sometimes i fail as a doting wife. he took thousands of images during his visit, but here are a couple of my favorites.

pretty fantastic right?  he found china incredibly beautiful, but difficult to photograph because of the air quality.  china's has some of the poorest air quality in the world. in fact his tour guide mentioned that one day in shanghai is equivalent to smoking three packs of cigarettes a day. isn't that terrible. despite the terrible smog, he captured some exceptionally beautiful images. good job babe!

on a completely unrelated side note: happy birthday kia!  you are the kindest, prettiest, and most genuine person i know.  thanks for being my one and only sister.  love you forever.  happy thursday! {monica}


  1. These are incredible! I love the contrast between the new and the traditional. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Wow..it amazes me to see how people live in other countries..just the architecture (spelling?) is so interesting..he captured some great pictures despite the bad air quality (that is UNREAL)!
