Chinese paper art

This is no fancy restaurant but a neighborhood Beijing dumpling eatery. I took this photo just a few hours ago while I had (late) lunch there. Of course the red Chinese paper cutting art is beautiful, but I think the colorful menu posters contribute to a great composition. By the way, the dumplings are good!

I love dumplings, that's true they're delicious. This is a very nice picture, especially with the lighting over the menu posters.

It looks like another love photo, there're so many of them around at the moment.
After all I hope they had a good meal and a great time together.

The shot looks very cosy. Thanx for sharing.
Ciao from my part of the world =)

Hey Lisi, I am able to receibe your images thru the RSS feed. I do not know what you did, but it worked. I am happy to see it working today with such a great cultural image. Greetings from the lonely Antigua Daily Photo. Have a great day!

That's a great photo Lisi! Yes I love those red cut-outs too. Chinese have many of those, and I see them quite often at Chinese restaurants here too.

Rudy, I really didn't do anything at all! Blogger is playing game maybe?! I really don't understand......;-) anywaz, that's good.

To everybody, I thought about taking this photo before these two people came in, then I would probably have shot it a bit sideway to avoid the light directly. Well, they came in, took the table so they are in! ;-)

Thanks for dropping by and Yes Karine, I like the dumplings!
