The Way I See It

Beijing at Night

with 2 comments

These are a couple images that I made while wandering around the Sanlitun area in Beijing. The first is of one of the famous ring roads (3rd, in this case). I shot this on the third night of National Day Golden Week, so traffic was fairly light, allowing me capture the Chinese characters (出口 – exit) in the roadway.

This second image is of the Yashow Clothing Market. A haggler’s paradise, this is where you can get everything from knockoff Guccis to infamous Red Army hats to jade amulets. Sanlitun is the nightlife and embassy district so even though it was Golden Week, the place was hopping.
