Daily Photo – Old Man on Steps near Drum Tower

While I was circling the Drum Tower in Beijing, there was a small community of people that were outside exercising, milling around, talking, and watching the world go by.  Many of the homes in the little houtong had their doors painted red, and that was a common element that tied everything together.  I had my hip-shooter with me too so I could capture this one.

And Nearby…

Here is the Drum Tower that I mentioned above…

Rickshaws at the Drum Tower I've visited Gǔlóu many times and never taken a photo.  I just couldn't figure one out.And then, this most recent trip, I walked around the tower several times until I finally got an idea.This is the giant drum tower built about a thousand years ago by Kublai Khan.  An enormous drum rests in front, and it was beat rhythmically to announce meetings. The temple sits in the Inner City to the north of Di'anmen Street.- Trey RatcliffRead more, including a preview of an exciting announcement, here at the Stuck in Customs blog.

    These are both wonderful shots – yes, red doors are supposed to be lucky and bring good fortune - but it has to face a specific way with no obstruction I think!

    His shoes look very comfy.

    I love how you’ve desaturated everything but the red in both shots. The sharp color contrast makes a nice focal point. I really like the clouds in the second photo. The man’s face is also nice in the first one.

    Two very nice shots, like both and the army of rickshaws.Just got back with family from a bush hike ,went to a place here in Perth called MT Dale its only 525 meters high but found something unusual up there.Will have to send you the photos,hanging on the tree next to 2 white crosses is an Red Indian symbol round in shape with what looks like bear skin with an Indian on a horse and down around the loop tassels or beaver tails  Or what ever as they are white with black tips. This I am sure is not Australian will send it to you as you may have seen it in your neck of the woods.
