Zigong at dusk

Posted by Ziren (Singapore, Singapore) on 10 July 2010 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

This the buildings in this scene belong to the oldest district of Zigong City, China. This suburb is called "Ziliujing" (θ‡ͺζ΅δΊ•εŒΊ) District. It has been around for at least 500 years. Today, Ziliujing and Gongjing district are merged to form Zigong City.

Beautiful! However, it would have been nicer if you can crop out the buildings before cos i find it distracting, so can focus more on the sun.

@Matthew: i get your idea :D i have another separate shot that focuses on the sun (look for the following picture posted on the next day). this shot, rather, was intended to show the gloominess and secluded status of this chinese city. it serves to remind everyone that china still has ancient cities filled with heritage, not just skyscrapers or "ancient" buildings preserved for the sake of preserving it. they charge high entrance fees. you know china the the "land of the admission ticket".
