Inside the Forbidden City

March 30, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

The day we visited the Forbidden City, there was a large crowd of visitors.  For some reason most of their interest was in the various palaces, so while tourists were densely packed together, they were concentrated in a few places.  This gave me the chance to get some shots of the neglected parts of the Forbidden City.

There is doubtlessly, millions of photos already taken by tourists and accomplished photographers of the Forbidden City.  Camera phones were in constant use around me.  I opted for compositions I thought that would suit a 'vintage' type treatment in editing.  So here's a selection of four pics, which I hope, depart from the 'typical' tourist snapshot.  Also, well, the postcard type professional shot is hard to pull off when there are crowds of people and the air pollution is pressing.
