This post is inspired from Sylvain Landry’s weekly photo challenge, Monuments.
“Often photography monuments are favorite subjects … They do not move, are massive, as they say imposes and seems to be the guarantee of a good photo … So we photographers, obviously we throw over . This week so I suggest you do the monuments the theme of this SL-WEEK 19 … Anything is possible as long as the scene is recognized as a historic site, this will be the only constraint. So I propose the Chantilly castle near Paris in France” … Sylvan Landry
I recently visited Beijing, China and was in awe with its rich history, colorful culture, and magnificent architectures.
I finally had the opportunity checking out Tiananmen Square, one of the most famous monument in China, for a brief visit. Since it was Chinese Independence weekend, I couldn’t get out the car and be closer to the site for a detailed visit. Plus the weather was overcast with pollution, it was difficult to admire Tiananmen Square without a clear sight.
However, I could still feel the energy permeated in the air with crowds of people paying homage to this monument during its holiday time. Despite not being close to the building, I was glad that I was there to soak up this grande image from afar with respect.
