Photographer's Note

Pingyao (Chinese: 平遥) is an amazingly preserved ancient town, some 700 km from Beijing. It still retains its layout from the Ming and Qing dynasties, with preserved Ming- and Qing-style residences numbering close to 4,000.


This picture complements a previous upload of mine, which was called "pingyao roofs".

Both pictures were taken from the southern gate tower looking to the north along Nan Dajie ('the great street south').

I played around with this shot and finally settled for this bl/w version.
