Colors on the old chinese walls

July / Juillet 2009

I already posted two or three weeks ago a picture of a quiet street. The common point for all Beijing's hutongs consists of those grey colors. If you go to another city, such as Tong Li, you'll find the same walls and floor, but black and dirty white. I'm not sure but cities probably all have their own pattern of colors when it's about the old medieval areas.

J'ai déjà posté il y a deux ou trois semaines la photo d'une rue tranquille. Le point commun de tous les hutongs, ce sont ces nuances de gris. Si vous allez dans une autre ville, par exemple Tong Li, vous y trouverez les mêmes murs, mais en noirs et blanc sale. Je n'en suis pas certain, mais je suppose que chaque ville a ses propres couleurs quand il s'agit des zones médiévales anciennes.
