08 Forbidden City

Zoom image
Forbidden CityForbidden City

The vast Forbidden City in the rain takes on a different texture. Despite being so grey the reds of the buildings still stood out everywhere. However the real colour came from the umbrellas, hats and raincoats of it's visitors. Everyone rushing through the courtyards from one building to another avoiding the rain. This feels as big as Beijing itself. In it's vastness comes a sense of calmness, I remember the films of Chinese dynasties and the power within this place. Utterly amazing it's survived centuries. One to visit again on a sunny day with plenty of time.
