Patti’s Lens-Artists Challenge today is set for fun as it’s about interesting objects. The possibilities are endless. I’m going to start with one from nature, my preferred photo local. This appears to be a little garden spot right inside a tree.

If you ever get the chance to eat at a Din Tai Fung location, grab that chance! After fleeing China with virtually no money, Mr. Yang, the founder,

“Mr. Yang decided to open his own shop to sell cooking oil and named it Din Tai Fung. Mr. Yang and his wife dedicated half of their shop to making and selling Xiao Long Bao—steamed pork soup dumplings.” From the website

But the food became so popular that he left the oil business to concentrate on the restaurant. The Hong Kong location has a Michelin star but you won’t notice any lack if your location is star-less. The food is outstanding and this cutie will welcome you.

Spotted as we waited in line for food. 🙂

If you’ve made it this far, give yourself and hand or if you can’t, I’ll give you this one. Happy weekend!
