In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “(Extra)ordinary.”
Mundane and meaningful objects. Beautiful everyday things. This week, surprise us with something or someone (extra)ordinary.
Classic architecture from the past may seem mundane or ordinary to the natives, but it feels extraordinary to me. I was lucky to do a quick historical sightseeing during my work trip to Beijing and stumbled upon this traditional building around Wangfujing district one afternoon.
This magnificent old restaurant front may be mundane to others, because it look just like other traditional architectures around Beijing, but it feels extra special to me. The vibrant colors adore its ceiling and columns, the detailed artwork embellish the framed work beautifully, and the structure and style of architecture represent years of Chinese history. It stands proudly in the midst of changes. To me, that’s ExtraOrdinary.
