Photo: Reality

I was looking for a more upbeat photo that captured a bit of that Spring Festival snap, crackle and pop. But when I saw this photo it grabbed my attention and reminded me of the excesses of the season (which this year has been pretty much a month-long Western-Chinese celebration hybrid).

Taken at Suzhou's famously-designed-by-IM-Pei museum, it looks like this guy is putting some Tai Qi lessons to practical use. Check out Jun Ballena's photostream for a whack of beautifully vibrant photography.

Photo: Rock This

From the always amazing photostream of Michael Steverson. In his words: "Sugar Rush performs at The Terrace in Shenzhen, China. First image of a photo documentary on rock music in China. I've been working on the project for a while now and I'm hoping to wrap it up by the fall. I'll be dropping some of these onto Flickr over time."
