Doors and Courtyards

Long story short, here we are with another series of my Chinese reportage: this time I tried to collect pictures of doors, aisles and inner courtyards.  In the Chinese traditional architecture  was very important to creating courtyards as a quiet and picturesque world in opposition to the  frenzied outside and this element sometimes is reproduced in the contemporary architecture, too.    

Collecting shoes around China

In my last trip I took tonnes of photographs but I am not brave enough yet to start picking out some of them so, instead, I decided to post this little series. I know that the fact I went around taking photos of shoes may seem quirky however I found that the Chinese habit of leaving their footwear on the doorstep was very cheerful and also inspirational. So that’s all! I will try to divide all the pictures I took according to themes, as I did here, to make my picking work easier and to show you very soon all the beautiful places I visited. Stay tuned!
