Chaozhou, China by leananiemand

Chaozhou, China

I stayed another day in Chaozhou as it is such an interesting town with an interesting history dating back to the Maritime Silk Route trade era. Chaozhou is most famous for its opera, a traditional art form dating back more than 500 years and based on local folk dances and ballads. I unfortunately did not get to see a show, but the interesting alleys made up for it.
Well captured

You are pretty brave to be wandering around dark alleys. All the cloth overhangs are picturesque, and increase the darkness.

Very good picture...nice exposure in the shaded alley without losing detail in the sunlit spots; beautiful composition. ...didn't know that you get such quiet alleys in China!
