Photographer's Note

"Hutong" is that means small lanes.

In the past, the city of Beijing was composed of many large and small sized Siheyuans (a combination of houses around a courtyard) face to face, back to back, side by side. Each line of a Siheyuan should leave a vacant path therefore people can go in and out easily, and the path is called Hutong (lane).

Old Beijingnese who live in hutongs look so close. they know each other, love each other and help each other. in summer, they enjoy staying at the path for chatting, for cool...
