that christmas hiatus was not planned (not to self: better write holiday posts in advance…), so ex post my best christmas wishes, alternatively seasons greetings to you all. there is a small number of china pictures left which i would like to share, starting with this view of the buddhist temple in the summer residence of the emperor together with the 21. century skyline of beijing.
walking and sightseeing in the middle of the crowd sometimes offers the opportunity to profit from posing meant for others, and this way i got the picture to the right. A lot of joy is in this pose, that’s why i like it.
I really enjoy these post such beautiful images…thank you for posting them.
Amazing scenery. I love the way you composed this frame half building and peeking waters.
The contrast between the ancient temple and the modern city lurking in the back – that’s what makes the photo for me… Great! Very symbolic, huh?
Lovely shots here. Love the architecture there. Gorgeous.
I like this. The old temple, clear in the foreground. The new city skyline, obscured by fog/smog in the background. Well done.
