China’s Forbidden City (yellow tiles)


I went to Beijing for the Chinese New Year and toured most of its famous historical and other amazing places in 3 long days of walking and taking photos with a group of Chinese tourists.  Most Americans could not have kept up with them!  Inside the Forbidden City (where the Chinese Emperors and their families used to live), I saw amazing colors in the walls and roofs.  Here is one photos which features yellow in tiles, building edges, and people’s coats.  I did not often see yellow as there was so much red (with occasional green and blue).
