Nature and Civilization

The city calls for green. The green calls for civilization.

Through a Wall

I have been pretty tired this week, getting back to work and finishing processing my pictures, so I’m really only halfway through the last batch. My last full day in China involved a stop in SuZhou, a beautiful little town with at least 9 formal gardens. We spent a couple of hours in the largest one, UNESCO World Heritage Site the Humble Administrator’s Garden (Zhuozheng Yuan) [Wikipedia] [my pictures at Flickr]. I am in love with these dense mixes of nature and architectural detail. More in the next few days.
