Forbidden City Abstract

It would have been nice to say this dramatic image was captured at the Forbidden City in Beijing.  Instead, this abstract was taken at a replica of the Chinese imperial palace in downtown High Point, NC.  The Forbidden City Showroom and Museum serves as both a furniture showroom and small museum of rare Chinese relics and artifacts.

The irony here has to do with the area furniture industry.  At one time, High Point was considered the furniture capital of the United States; some would say world. The vast majority of top name furniture manufactures were all located within driving distance. Today however, 90% of those facilities are now closed as manufacturing has been primarily relocated to China. High Point does continue to host the world’s largest B2B Furniture Market every spring and fall.You can click on the image to view a higher resolution version on my portfolio site.

    1. Thank you sir, appreciate your kind comments! I was afraid I would only come away with some cool cumulus compositions, a few blocks away I found the cool rooftop as a silhouette.
