Wild Goose Pagodas (Smog)
Posted By: pop4, 09-05-2008, 10:13 PM

Here's a few more holiday snaps from China. Apart from the Terracotta Warriors, the Big Wild Goose Pagoda and Small Wild Goose Pagodas are another touristy reason why people visit Xi'an. I know the colours in the photos all seem to be faded and washed out, but, that's the way it was. No, it wasn't because the weather was particularly cloudy, or foggy, or raining, but sadly, it's something man made. What you see in the photos is pollution.

#1 Xi'an Museum sign with the Small Wild Goose Pagoda in the background

#2 Small Wild Goose Pagoda

#3 View from the top of the Small Pagoda

#4 Top of the Wild Goose Pagoda, not very much space at all; I climbed up though that small hatch


#6 The Xi'an Museum building

#7 The Big Wild Goose Pagoda in the background

#8 View from inside the Big Pagoda. Mmmm, pollution.

#9 The stairs inside the Pagoda

Comments, criticisms, suggestions and all welcome.

#9 is my favorite. The poles have a nice red color and the wide angle lens give it a neat perspective!

Thanks for the comments guys. I guess people do like colour!

Edit: and just for a bit of fun and to inject some colour into one of the original images, here's something I cooked up in about two minutes:
