I Love Beijing Tiananmen

"I Love Beijing Tiananmen", this is the title of a well-known Chinese nursery rhyme, especially for those people like me who born in China before 1970s. Tiananmen is a symbol for China, as the Opera House for Australia.

On 18 September 2005, one year ago today, I took the following night scene of Tiananmen while standing at the west of Tiananmen Square in Beijing, China. That day was also the Mid-Autumn Festival in the Chinese lunar calendar. We, two workmates and I, just flew back to Beijing from Urumqi, after attending the workgroup conference of GB/T 19668, a set of Chinese national standards specialising on auditing and monitoring information system.

Yesterday, as I mentioned in my last post, I took a picture of Sydney Opera House while on the Harbour Bridge. It was a coincidence that I recorded two symbolized buildings of two countries just at the beginning and the end of a one year time period.

伟大的建筑
漂亮的照片
中秋\月圆\新疆\..也很有诗意
最后提什么监理?!
简直是--
画蛇添足
狗尾续貂
盲人提着灯笼
哑巴拿着手机
..
别人身上的盲肠
