Beijing Photos - Part 2 - Details  
Second part of my Beijing Photos entry is here :) Details!
I have such a weak spot for details and close-ups. This is a little collection of them.


Very image heavy!

01.) Forbidden city - detail in the wall




05.) Forbidden city Detail















20.) Forbidden City - Detail















35.) This was a big bronze plate of the whole downtown, including the Forbidden City which was covered in gold


37.) Capital Museum - detail of the door


Back to Part 1

You can find the whole set on flickr as well. :)

*dies* those are gorgeous awesome

And #32... It's such better than saying "don't walk on the grass" we have lessons to take.

:D Thank you!!!! Yeah I was standing at the edge of the grass and was grinning so hard. I mean such an awesome way to say don't step on the grass :)

35 is stunning. Very cool. As for 11, please don't tell me those scorpions are for food.
Susan: Jared - Trampoline ASS!nyaubaby on September 12th, 2009 02:38 pm (UTC)
yeah. scorpions were for food. Also because it's a picture you don't see but they were actually moving. You blew a little air towards them and they just moved all their arms and tail. I practically ran off when one of the guys showed one of the sticks along my way. lol.

You have such an eye for the detail and that is something that I love as well! Great job.

/runs to grab my camera b/c you have just made me want to take some pics :D
Susan: Jared - Trampoline ASS!nyaubaby on September 12th, 2009 04:34 pm (UTC)
OH YAY!!! I'm a sucker for details. I always go for the close-ups and I love when you catch something and it just alone so great that you haven't expected.

oh wow! this is AWESOME, that you feel inspired!!! *g*
Patricia and Susana: girlpat_susana on September 12th, 2009 03:28 pm (UTC)
We were blowned away with the entire set on Flickr!! You have such a great eye for photography!! The portrait of your friend is gorgeous and all of the close ups that you made of the architecture are simply stunning. ♥ The photo with the lamp has such a cinematic feeling. It reminded us of that movie, "In the mood for love" :D
Susan: |SN| - S/D - brothersnyaubaby on September 12th, 2009 04:44 pm (UTC)
Oh yeah, I saw you guys checked out my pics :) thank you!

I just love capturing things that are invisible for other people :)
Ninasiberian_angel on September 12th, 2009 03:48 pm (UTC)
Are you sure you are in the right profession?! I mean, SRSLY, you could as well be the Anne Leibowitz of Architecture!!!! Jesus, all of these are so freaking amazing, I just wanna trash my project because I could never come close. *lol*
My favourite is probably the bronze plate, that's plain amazing! But Beijing has a lot of damn interesting architecture, modern well mixed with historic - it looks awesome, especially through your pictures!!!
Susan: sn - boys - happy happy joy JOYnyaubaby on September 12th, 2009 07:59 pm (UTC)
Hey Nina! :D I literally couldn't wait to show these to you ;) And nah, my pictures are too one sided, lol. But I'm happy that I can usually notice things that nobody else does or would think of :) I think that is the real challenge in photography. To see what's right in front of your nose and show it in a different way.

And Beijing is spectacular. I hope I will be back :)

just awesome. I so would love to go there someday. :D
Susan: sn - dean - adorablenyaubaby on September 12th, 2009 08:09 pm (UTC)
Selling? What? really? Uh, I've never thought about that...

How is that even work?

Beijing is definitely more grey, I just cheated on my pics, lol. But lovelt city for sure!

Tehehehhe! I know! Chinglish searching one of my favs to do :)

UHm, she is Lang, my Coordinator girl. She is amazing, and I met her the first time when I was there even we have been working together for months. She is gorgeous, and I just couldn't stop snapping some pictures of her. :)

Amazing!! Where did you find the bronze plate of the downtown Beijing area? It's beautiful!
Susan: 00 - bite my musenyaubaby on September 13th, 2009 09:00 pm (UTC)
Thanks :) It was in the urban planning museum near the forbidden city. Basically because I was the guest of the big digital media company which was making exhibitions all over Beijing, the chairman give me the opportunity to visit some exhibitions and works we've done. This museum was one of them. We did animations for them and they were showing them in their in house cinema.
nargynargynargynargy on September 13th, 2009 12:52 pm (UTC)
I love the second set of pictures, the close-ups and details. Some of them are so abstract especially the buildings! I love lines and minimalism in my architecture :D

Susan: misc - girls rule!nyaubaby on September 13th, 2009 09:01 pm (UTC)
Well you know me by now, lol, I'm a sucked for details. I think if you design a building and you take a picture of it's details and if it's a magnificent building, the crops and the details will be just as magnificent :) And I love showing angles and close-ups that are uncommon.

I WANT THAT KIND OF TV THING IN 28! Astronaaaaauts :D. You´re seriously good at photography, why didn´t I know this kind of thing??!! I should have figure, though ;).

My favourites are 07 (even if I don´t know what it is), 13 (I love that shade of blue), 15 (ajdhjdhjad, this is such a beautiful black and white picture! I can´t stop staring. I love how she´s out in focus in the background and you concentrated on the lamp in the left corner) and I love the ornaments of the cups in 25, very pretty.

Ahahaha, "yes, we speak english!" and then the sign for emergency exit? What is the background story to that? Either way, it´s hilarious ^_^. LOL HOILET. BRB DYING. It´s so amazing how many mistakes they made abroad when trying to include other languages, I think they have an entire book or blog on these kind of misspellings, it´s seriously entertaining to read through. Also, 32 is pretty much the most awesome way ever to prevent people from stepping on the grass, it automatically made me smile just by reading it :D. They are even polite in their signs, seriously amazing.

Thank you very much for sharing, I adore this picspam! Next time when you´re visiting abroad, make even more pictures, hee.

That TV was on the Headquater of the company I work for. It's a Digital Art/Imaging company, so they had some creative shit all over the place. this was my fav. There are some other pictures as well I just didn't wanted to post all as there was a no photographing rule, which I obviously ignored :P Also thank you girl, you know it means a lot coming from you. But remember our first conversation about art in general? you either have the eye or don't. I guess photography always helped me with composing pictures. :)

7 is from the Olympic Park. It was a "simple" lamp post which looked like leaves. I found them fascinating. 13 is the Watercube which was the Olympic Aquatic center. It looks pretty awesome at night.
I like 15 too. I have another picture, the same one but the focus is on her only and not the lamp. I like this better because it's more subtle :)

I LOVE Chinglish. It was one of the cutest thing when I found something like the "Holiet" I can tell you I went to this restaurant and I went to the toilet, and run back to the table giggling and grabbed my camera and run back. Everybody thought I was an idiot, but I just took picture of the sign :D

I have TONS of pictures from abroad, I just never posted them. I thought noone would be interested.

Hi. :) I found your graphic journal awhile ago, then I lost it, then I found it again, yea! But lol I saw a neat little pic of the lamp and your post of a trip to Beijing and I couldn't help but look. :)

I just wanted to say that some of these are spectacular. In set two my favorites are: #38, 34, and the most fav is #17.

In set one I just adore #14. I love the water and the black n white..Idk, it's just that to me the whole thing reminds me of chest board with your center subject being the chess pieces. Great job♥
Susan: 00 - bite my musenyaubaby on September 26th, 2009 06:37 pm (UTC)
OH how cool is this :) I'm really glad you checked out my photos. I love taking pictures, and if I can show you something knew, my job here is done :)

I really like that lamp as well, hence I had some pictures of it :) And wow you like 17? That's pretty cool. Those are the gifts I gave to some people from my hometown :D

Actually that reminds me of the chess pieces as well, but funny enough it's a picture after rain :D
tinkabell007tinkabell007 on September 29th, 2009 09:18 am (UTC)
I am also a detail person. Usually I am not really able to capture them with my crappy cam, but I see them!
That's why this post made me very happy to look at, b/c there are so many little things lots of ppl would overlook while wandering around - especially in a country like this.
The building details are especially stunning.
Susan: 00 - bite my musenyaubaby on September 29th, 2009 09:43 am (UTC)
YES right there! I LOVE details and the point that I can show things that people simply just walk by! I mean it happened with me before a lot of times, that I took a picture showed to someone, who was with me, and they actually asked where that picture was taken, and I'm like YOU WERE STANDING NEXT TO IT! lol

I love those moments :) Makes me proud of my eye. =)

I'm a happy puppy now, that you've seen them!
英伦挚念 / Ivyivy_wang on October 1st, 2009 03:18 pm (UTC)
I have to say I love all these pics, reminding me of my first time there 8 years ago. It's a shame that I don't have time to go there again as it only takes me hours to be there by train.

The Forbidden City is just as fabulous as what I remembered, but your works just made it more unbelievably incredible. I wish I can have a close look at the Watercubic. It already seems beautiful on TV. I wonder what it would be like when I have a look at it in person.

Thanks for the details. You made my day!
Susan: 00 - bite my musenyaubaby on October 1st, 2009 03:39 pm (UTC)
I'm really happy you like the photos :) I loved Beijing and this was my first time in china as well. Forbidden City is amazing but it felt strange to be there. I can't describe the feeling.

The Watercube is a lot of fun, but because of the Beijing air pollution it looks really dirty. You get the better view during night when it's lighted, hence I posted only that picture of it :)

I love details, and I'm glad to show those details that other people usually doesn't notice :)

You are amazing!!!!
I have been beijing twice but there's so many beautiful scenes I haven't see!:)
And you have those such beautiful photos.:)Thank you for sharing!:)
Susan: misc - girls rule!nyaubaby on December 28th, 2009 10:04 pm (UTC)
Oh wow! thank you! Photography is my passion and I'm proud I can show you something that you haven't even though you've been there :) that's what I call the true success :)

thanks for your lovely comment :D
