WuYuan – Carvings

While we were not too sure that WuYuan is the most beautiful village in China, while there, we have seen buildings of great architectural and historical value.

Here is a picture showing carvings on a building.DSCF1112

They are so  delicate and vividly show so much of life.

Understand in the Cultural revolution, they were covered up with mud, to prevent people damaging them.

This village was not readily accessible in older times, this has helped to preserve the carvings.Things, however, are changing – a high speed rail is being built to reach the area nearby.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Broken ( Houses at Dubrovnik )

< 2 photos >

I like the houses at Dubrovnik – all of them having terracotta roofs, quite uniform albeit a bit cluttered together.

In our walk on the walls of Dubrovnik, we came across some old and broken buildings – which presumably were damaged in the Civil War of the last century.DSCF0902

For reasons unknown to me, they were not rebuilt.

I took the opportunity of photographing them, as a reminder of how ugly a civil war can be.DSCF0901

One photo shows the close up view while the other one gives a general idea of the setting.
