Closing time at the Forbidden City

5_pm_inner_court_forbidden_city_2 I took this snapshot as our group was being herded out of the Forbidden City, in Beijing, at a little past 5 pm, last April 3. (I had time to take two shots, before we were all shown the door, or rather the gate, directly opposite the one in the photo; this is the second.) Something about late afternoon sunlight —- yes, even in China —- always speaks to me.
