Goldfish Pond, Suzhou.

Leica M6, 50mm f2.

I found the gardens the most dazzling architectural achievement I saw in China. While I found the Forbidden City impressive, the gardens moved me with their drama and balance.

Although all the gardens I saw were somewhat run-down, the achievements of the architects were hardly diminished. I particularly loved Yu-Yuan in Shanghai.
