grey

grey days like this remind me of  my winter in beijing. these lakes in the middle of the city always managed to be serenely beautiful even when the rest of beijing was unbearable. to celebrate the fact that new york is finally out of the frozen zone, here are some photos of beijing on ice.

 enterprising locals made these "chair skates" and charged visitors to go out on the ice.
