On a brilliant and sunny Saturday along Wangjiamatou Lu (王家码头路).

A photog friend once said to me that she never liked photographing old houses on the weekends. “Too much laundry hanging out in the streets,” she said. It obscured the details of the houses she photographed.

I think this explains why I never really get many good architectural shots.

    It’s so perfectly placed, so classic, those shadows really pop off the wall. Great shot.

      Thank you @Mikecheck. It definitely made a person do a double take…

    Awesome, awesome, awesome! Tried to get a shot of shadows of the roof figurines in the Forbidden Palace in my recent trip to BJ, but didn’t quite work (

    This, though, is just superb, especially in the black and white it’s almost an optical illusion.

      Thanks Alex! I think shadws are wonderful to play with in photography, they are very powerful and evocative when chanced upon. The witching hours of late sun rise and early sun down are indeed filled with opportunities!
