Week 28 - Old Chinese Architecture (July 15)

This photo was taken back in June at the Forbidden City in Beijing. Beautiful Place!!

I love the architecture of the some of the old historical buildings in China. The old style really stands out against the modern buildings and gives you a good look at what the old China may have looked like at one time. Most places have been restored or are in the process of being repaired (for the 2008 Olympics) and don't quite look as old as they should.

Week 27 - Old Boat Dock Tie (July 8)

This image was taken on a wonderful weekend trip to Chicago. My family and I went up to visit my brother and his girlfriend last Saturday and ended up taking an architectural boat tour along the river on Sunday. It was a beautiful day for a leisurely ride on the river as well as a perfect day for pictures. Chicago is a beautiful city with an amazing history and gorgeous buildings. Tones of old stuff just waiting to be captured by a camera.
