New Adventures In Old Beijing
We've been staying in Beijing for over a week now is this shabby little apartment right across from the north wall of the Forbidden City. Today's photo is only a few minutes walk from our front door. Even though there are giant rats living in the ceiling, huge brown slugs sliming all over everything, and pipes breaking open to spew stinky brown goo, the location couldn't be more perfect. If I was a Realtor, all I'd say is, "It has character."
What you see here is the north entrance to the Forbidden City shortly after a beautiful sunset. On my second night in Beijing, I jogged the length of the top half of the ancient wall to find some cool vantage points. When I returned here to shoot, there were dozens of little bats fluttering all around my shot. They were a cool audition to the experience and they moved too quick to impact the exposure.
