The doors of Beijing

Created with flickr slideshow from softsea.

Beijing has a lot of really beautiful, interesting doors. I've been taking a few pictures whenever I happen to pass one. My very favorites are the old, shaped doors. They were designed to basically create a frame for the view behind them. I included the Foo Dog door guardian at the end because he doesn't flank a grand siheyuan. He and his twin guard the doors of a very modern law office and copy shop on Yaojiayuan Street.
