forbidden paint job by greg angus

Apparently it takes the paint crew at Beijing’s Forbidden City a few years to repaint the giant red walls that surround that fantastic complex of palaces, gardens and halls.

A never-ending task if there ever was one.

    The addition of a bicycle always adds an evocative touch for me. Love the walls and that amazing peeling paint! Oh, and the colour.

    I love the red coloring and how old and raggedy the wall/photo itself looks.
