Xi’an City Wall Panorama

By , September 28, 2009 8:45 pm

This is a shot that I took on the southeast corner of the Xian City Wall during a trip to China in 2008. It was near dusk and we had rented some bicycles on top the wall to bike the 13.6 km around the entire city perimeter on the cobblestone top wall. Catching a short breather an eighth of the way in I snapped these series of pictures. This image captures the haze and the smog true to life of urbanized Xian but I like it because of the juxtaposition of the old and the new.
