At Long Last………China!

Imperial Palace, Beijing, 2016

Once again, it’s been a few weeks since I last made a posting here.  This is due to my having been away last week visiting family and my having worked a lot of overtime at the office recently.
I had been thinking of posting here, however, and with that in mind, I scanned a few photos from my trip to China last year before I went away.  (That trip was in July 2016, and yes – 2016 was still “last year.”)  That trip to China lasted about three weeks and yielded a lot of good photographs, but for some reason, I had never really gotten around to scanning them, other than a couple of random images.  I am trying to change that now.

As my trip began in China’s capital, Beijing, I’ve decided to begin scanning the photos from there.   The images I’m showing today were made at the Imperial Palace (aka the Forbidden City).  On my first trip to China in May 1989, I was not able to enter this place due to the student protests that were going on at the time.  I was able to visit for a short time in 2007 on the way home from a trip to Tibet, but last year was the first time that I went on a proper tour.
As it’s a popular place, filled with lots of visitors (mostly Chinese), it’s difficult to get photographs of the architecture there without a lot of people in the way. Instead, I decided here to concentrate on photographing some of the ornate art work that’s carved into the ground, without any people walking over it.
I do, however, have a lot of people photos from China, and those will be coming up in future posts.
