Photographer's Note

According to the website, Forbidden city was built in 1406 to 1420, the complex consists of 980 buildings and covers 720,000 m2 (7,800,000 sq ft). The palace complex exemplifies traditional Chinese palatial architecture and has influenced cultural and architectural developments in East Asia and elsewhere. The Forbidden City was declared a World Heritage Site in 1987, and is listed by UNESCO as the largest collection of preserved ancient wooden structures in the world.

The photo was taken in consideration of the relationship between human and nature. We chinese built a lot of walls, we even built the longest wall in the world, call it the Great Wall. As the question we ask all the time, to keep everybody out,or lock ourselves in? At the end of the image, there was a bird nest, birds don't build walls, they are free.. is it one of the reason, we wish we could be birds?
Thanks for looking.
