Images and words from Beijing by a Sydney-based British journalist. Most photos were taken with an old Leica III or a Contax IIa, using print film or slides.
I was here with my daughter, who was living in Beijing at the time, about three years ago. It was fun to see your photos of the temple and remember what it was like to be there with my daughter. It was a holiday when we were there, and the temple grounds were crowded with people, so it looks odd to me to see it so empty.
Thanks Wanda - it has been quiet on my two visits to the temple, but then I went midweek off season! NIce to compare the modern pictures with those taken by Hedda MOrrison back in the thirties too.
