China Town

 
I had to go to China Town yesterday. This is a replica of a famous structure--don't know what it is called---the young man I was with could only say it in Mandarin and that didn't help me much!!

But I took it more because the Sears Tower is just to the left of it in the background.....

  3. Gorgeous structure. The other buildings must be very nice too. Is this a large Chinatown?

  5. Neva, I bet all the dragons symbolize something, too. Very interesting the juxtaposition of the Old Chinese culture with the glass and steel of Sears tower.

    I had to explain in my blog why my posts last week were curt and canned.

  6. This is different to your usual shots Neva - this is so "big city" compared to your usual rural/small town photos.

    Great detail on the structure.

  7. I was going to say what Steve said...interesting contrast between old and new cultures. It is also amazing that there seems to be Chinatowns in many cities, world-wide.

  9. I'd love to see the close-up details! Love the man passing in front of it too.

    Is Chinatown very typical in your town, or is there very little to see?

    I thought quite nice that the young man could tell you in Mandarin what it was, it means he has retained at least part of his culture!

  10. Neva, it really makes a difference to what you usualy show us. But even in this photo you show that on larger towns there are some rare momentos of peace and tranquility.
    I like the three plans we have on the photo: grey from the road, multiple colours from the constructions and mouvement from the man and blue for the sky.
    Well done.

  14. What a big contrast between the past and the modern. To tell the truth I prefer the past. More colorful and artistic.

  15. Great shot! I love to visit chinatowns in different cities. I would love to visit Chicago some day. Everyone says it's such a great city!
