Although kind of 'cutesy kitsch', these panda bears on sale, outside the research station, north of Chengdu, caught my eye. I liked the green bamboo additions to some of them.
There were about 4-6 real panda bear cubs, inside the centre, in January 2002, but I respected the 'no flash / photography' request signs.

Simple but well working compo,nice graphic effect thanks to the different sized Panda bears.The green and red color spots are fine details.
Have a nice weekend!

I am glad you take this shot. The contrast makes it very rhythmic like a poetry with different stress and emphasis. The green gives the needed contrast and variety. Excellent shot and choice! Regards and best wishes.

Insolite ta photo d'aujourd'hui, pas dans ton style habituel.
Je ne pense pas qu'il y ait encore autant de pandas dans la nature ;-))
Thanks for sharing.
Bon week-end /Pierre

Thanks for your guidelines and also thanks for this simple, funny picture of Pandas. I like the way you capture this repetition with a graphic effect. Good contrast and a resulting and funny composition!
Congratulations and have a nice weekend!

Hi Chris, Straight, repeat, and many pandas. I like the cute-looking toy animals. Nice, simple, and good DOF.

Hi Chris. Good use of repetition in this fun photo of the variously-sized panda figures. Simple, but quite delightful. Interesting to have just a few dashes of color in the predominantly b&w setting.

very interesting composition indeed.like you said,the green leaves do match with the colour of the pandas.a very different shot with a good object to shoot.
avigur_11 (22081) 2005-04-30 20:09
A very nice almost b/w picture. Using the repetitions of pandas in different sizes you created a very nice composition. Very good shot.

I would like also more real panda because they are threatened of disappearance now! Anyway, it's a very nice graphical effect with all this pandas in line and with different seize. Well seen!

This one makes he laugh! Very effective to find and capture this pattern for us. I'll look for such things in my neighborhood now too!

Very nicely spotted and captured - I like the mix of different size and shapes of those fine toy-pandas - and yes could be a fine contribution for the Kitsch catch - thanks Chris for sharing.

Hi Chris - a random find today, just couldn't resist, maybe nauseatingly cute but the repetition makes it a great photo.
sergio1 (12152) 2006-07-19 5:46
Very funny and original shot. I love Pandas. In chiang mai I went to zoo to see these animals live. A great experience.
