Mom's camera in Beijing

{Forbidden City, Beijing, China}
{Rescued baby pandas, Beijing Zoo}
Did I ever mention we procrastinate a lot in my family? (Well, mainly me.) We finally organized photos from my mom's Beijing trip 2 summers ago! I remember being stuck in London, envious.

Although I think my mom had more fun meeting people than seeing sites: Like this Swedish couple who were celebrating the Olympics & home team love. Go sports fan style! :)
~ Have a fun and lovely weekend! ~

(Thanks Mom!)

Awww.....your Mom took amazing pics..they are really beautiful!! I have an Aunt like that, she will snap a pic of a stranger in a grocery store on her cell phone if she thinks they look like someone we know, lol

Have a fabulous day!

Oh my, I just love these pictures. Think I must go see China one day (and that has nothing to do with my lifelong love affair with Chinese food, nope, not at all!)
Have a great weekend :)

these pictures are stunning!

Rosie said...

So great pictures! BTW, I still haven't sorted my holiday pictures of 2008... and I have the feeling there won't be soooo much time in the near future to do it ;-)

Thanks for all your nice words at my blog and flickr - I'm a bit slow at the moment, but I try to catch up! Left a comment also at your yesterday's post - loved it! :-)

I know the feeling - I'm constantly behind on sorting photos. Good intentions, lacking in staying power. I start, then get side-tracked onto something else because it seems so much more interesting!

Lovely photos - I like the pandas, all flaked out on the logs. :)

Oh, My Darling said...

The Swedish couple look like they'd be fun to hang out with! Cool pictures!

Nicole said...

The photo of the forbidden city is breath-taking! the lights are gorgeous!

K and S said...

beautiful photos, better organized late than never I say!

Bombay Beauty said...

Me too -- meeting people trumps seeing things any day! bb

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Gorgeous photos! And I have to admit that we're procrastinators too. I still haven't picked my wedding photos and I got married over a year ago :)

Have a wonderful weekend! xoxo

Meghan said...

Beautiful pictures!! Procrastination is big in my family too. :)

Annie said...

Jess said...

Very cool photos! I wish I could go to Beijing I think it would be a real culture shock! And I would love to see pandas, though apparently our prime minister is looking at getting a panda for Wellington zoo for a while. The important things that need to be done for the country haha :)

That couple stole the show for me. They're exactly(or rather, they seem like) the kind of people that i tend to just start a conversation with. Great pictures of course and i'd love to go to China and Japan to do some major shopping. I hear the shopping is "off the chain" at either of these places! Happy weekend to you! xx

Lee Oliveira said...
