During my last trip to China, it was cold…….very cold! It is common knowledge that there aren’t as many colors to see in the winter, because the flowers aren’t blooming and the trees don’t have leaves and fruit on them.

colors As I was walking down the street, the normally crowded benches were empty and grey. I don’t blame anyone for not wanting to sit outside in the cold in a place where the snow and ice were stacked up very near to where you would be sitting. In the picture to the left you can see this area was void of color.

After seeing all of the dullness and drabness of a winter’s day, something caught my eye. I noticed a lady wearing a coat that was more colorful than any coat I think I have ever seen in China. To my surprise a couple of store fronts down from here, I saw an extremely colorful display. I don’t know what this store was selling, but their advertisement certainly stood out on a dreary day. I also thought it was ironic with the lack of color all around, and then seeing how similar the lady’s coat was to the display in the store. As you can see in the pictures below, these colors grabbed my attention!colors2
