I was amazed at the size of Tianamen square. The people look small and the lines of lamp posts and fountains marching off to the large buildings that look small in the distance. Appropriately (since “tian” means sky) the sky also helps to give perspective, the one thing big enough to stand up to its magnitude.
If it wasn’t for the last minute…Instead of 30 posts, 30 photos in one gallery, but they are all square.

Since so many of the blogs I follow have been posting to the Roof Squares Challenge I found myself taking more pictures of roofs while we were on vacation than I would have otherwise. I began to have a chimney pot obsession toward the end.
