T-square and the Forbidden City

This morning I had the opportunity to stand again in the largest square in the world.

From there it was on to the Forbidden City.

Douglas and Pandy, Kylie and Darcy's ambassador lovies, came along for the ride.

I've visited twice before ~ once in 2007 and again in 2008 ~ so this time I focused on the detail work of the complex.

From the colors

to the rooflines

to the stone carvings

to the hammered metal on doors

nearly every part of the palace had something that deserved a second glance.
