Temple of Heaven

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Margaret Farrell

The gardens of Beijing's Temple of Heaven are a favourite meeting place for elderly Chinese who gather to talk, dance and play music. One of the garden's regulars is this old gentleman with his strange wind instrument. I had met him two years earlier, and was delighted to catch up with him again. He has a magnificent face.

Location: Long Corridor, Temple of Heaven, Beijing, China
