Making the most of the good weather whilst it lasts

It is going to get really, really cold soon so I am  making the most of getting out and about when I can.   Relying on a camera more than sketching very often as I am with  other people and time is limited.  I did quick sketches at a coffee shop in Longshon with Michelena, in Dalian whilst waiting to get my hair cut and today sketched the sun flowers in Blueberry Farm which is right behind the building where teachers  are housed.   It was overrun with photographers shouting instructions to brides in ridiculous frilly nylon dresses whilst their grooms fussed with ill fitting cheap suits.  This is big business in China and this area seems to attract dozens... as soon as they finished takes in the sun flowers another group drove up.
