Summer Vacation | China Trip 2015 Days 10 & 11 | Wuyi University & Train & Shanghai

China Travel

Days 10 and 11 of our Summer vacation to China sort of blended together with one day being a travel day, so they’re blended together with this vacation photos blog post! As we were exploring parts of Fujian and Wuyi we went to visit Wuyi University which has a gorgeous and large campus out in the countryside of Wuyishan. After spending the morning/afternoon around the university and visiting Betty’s family they dropped us off at the Wuyi rail station where we took the evening train over to Shanghai. Here are some of the sights from Wuyi University and Shanghai!

Had Betty stand in for scale to just how big some of these buildings at Wuyi University are.

Since it was Summer break for the University the campus was mostly empty other than a few international students.

The sports arena at Wuyi, really huge! I can’t imagine what the campus is like full of students during the school year.

I think this was just a random station in between Wuyi and Shanghai that I got out to take photos of during a stop to stretch my legs.

Of course we had to stop at the park/carnival thing that is in the center of Shanghai for the kids to give Miles a break from the sightseeing. He really loved this ride which lets kids drive construction equipment.

Street night market scenes outside of the main commercial strip. These were sprinkled here and there throughout the city with locals hanging out and grabbing a bite to eat after work with street food.

Of course I had to walk to the Bund to take photos of the riverside at night!

Fall in the City | New York City with the Sony A7R 2014
Going through some older photos from the end of 2014, here are a few from some walks around Manhattan =). Besides eating lots of ramen and drinking espresso, I love checking out the city for cool New York City engagement session locations or places for a pre-wedding photo shoot. These first few photos were taken with the handy Sony A7R, my favorite walk around camera (and reviewed as a wedding photographer's camera in these links to other blog posts). Check out a few photos from this random afternoon grabbing some ramen and walking around the Chinatown/Brooklyn Bridge area of lower Manhattan with the A7R! ...

Personal | Recent Happenings With Miles! Day Out With Thomas 2013 & School Carnival
Just doing a quick post from what we've been up to lately - besides being up to our ears in weddings! Seriously, this Summer/Fall season has been I-N-S-A-N-E! Well I guess it's like this every year, as the end is finally in sight! December and January only have 2 weddings each month, it's not a month of 4 weddings with 3 of them being 3 or 4 day Indian Wedding =). A few weeks ago we took Miles to the Jungle Jam carnival at his preschool and then to the Day Out With Thomas event down in Cordele, GA! Even though we play with him all day around downtown here it's fun to get out once in a while too. You may have already seen these photos on Insta ...
