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.
Congratulations on making Home Page for the Chinese New Year Spread!!!新年好
beautiful vibrant color of wall !
I love the red coloring and how old and raggedy the wall/photo itself looks.
Great find !
