China: AM To PM in Beijing

Beijing, December 2011

During my one week trip to Beijing besides the Summer Palace and the Forbidden City, I also explored some other interesting places. And as I was sorting out my Beijing photo files, I was in the mood for editing those photos in oldish style. Even though Beijing is a very modern city now but every time I travel to China, I have an odd feeling as if I travel through the time machine back to the ancient century.

This post is a set of photo collection of random things that caught my attention. I will only put one caption for each pictures and just let your imagination run wild. Because I do believe that sometime a picture speak a thousand words. Here's a one day tour around Beijing for you.....from dawn till dusk...

Welcome back. So how was your journey ? Which one is your favourite spot?

      paling bingung kalo ditanya tips motret, soalnya aku juga ga ngerti teori photography. Lebih suka asal keliatan bagus langsung jepret aja pake mode auto, hihihi
