Photographer's Note

mor or less the same location as my previous post


Hongcun is an exceptionally well preserved traditional village in the mountains in southern Anhui.

The village architecture here has developped using the principles of Feng Shui in a style of architecture called Huizhou. White walls, dark tiles and horse-head gables are other common features in this kind of traditional and very Chinese architectural style.

At the center of the village is a moon shaped pool.


This picture shows a part of the pool in the very centre of the village. Such a pool is the heart of traditional village life. It not only serves a practical purpose, it's also a cool gathering place.

I like the effect of the blue shadow approaching the edge of the pool.
