photoblog image GZ 06: Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall

GZ 06: Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall

At first I was under the impression that it was the residence of Sun Yat and later was converted to a memorial hall. But apparently it was built after the death of the revolutionary. Widely considered the Father of the Chinese Nation, he saw his power and influence wane after the fall of the Qing dynasty. He spent a long time overseas, in exile, including Singapore.

The red flowers add to the lovely deep blue of the roof. Nice composition!

Wide-angle lens was a good choice for this fine shot, Ayush.

You fell into the red flowers? Be careful.
I like this point of view.
Lots for the eye to take in and admire, Ayush. Beautiful rich colours with the reds, blues & greens.
Interesting history and use of wide angle to include the flowers. Reds and blues, very Chinese.
Great shot - I love the low angle over the flowers!
