Spent most of today at Temple of Heaven park. Straightforward to get to using the very efficient (if always overcrowded) Beijing subway. The architecture is stunning, and tremendously well preserved. I had my Nikon D7000 with me plus a few lenses. I had intended to bring my much more compact FujiFilm X100 but that has a frozen aperture shutter and I’m waiting for Fuji to send me the packaging I’ll need to return it for repair under warranty. However I’m glad I brought the Nikon, because I’ve found the availability of the various lenses I have to have been invaluable.

There was more than enough to photograph in the park, but the day was topped off by the fact that there were a number of brides and grooms around, being photographed following their weddings. The costumes were absolutely stunning, and I can only hope that the shots I saw through the viewfinder are what come out.

On the way back I actually managed to get a seat at one point on the subway, a first.
