The pagoda was built in 652 in the Tang Dynasty.
It must be one of the tallest structures in the world when it was first built.
An engineering feat and achievement at its time.
Like the Pisa tower, it is leaning slightly to one side, although not as noticeable.
Two years ago, I have a series known as The Impressions of Autumn.
I don’t think I have showcased all the photos.
The picture was taken in a temple on the Eastern side of Kyoto during Autumn.
The pagoda rises gracefully above the color foliage.
The picture was taken by my classmate YM Chan to which credit is due.
Autumn was everywhere.
In the last two times I visited West Lake (Hangzhou), it was deep Autumn and rainy.
Here is a photo supplied by my friend CP Chan, showing the silhouette of a pagoda, in the water.
This image illustrates Hangzhou at its best, when everything seems to be an impression, rather than real.
