XI’an

Xi’an, Revisited (I)

I’ve been to Xi’an three times: October of 2007,  September of 2009, and May of 2010. In total, I’ve taken over 500 picture of the city, with Nikon D50, Nikon D300, and Canon IXUS 950 IS cameras. Over the next week, I’ll be posting four pictures a day of the shots I took that I think best captured the city, both in terms of its long history, as well as the people currently living or visiting there.

Most of the pictures were taken during the 2007 trip and with the Nikon D50. At five days, it was my longest visit to the city.

I’m only included three pictures of the Terracotta Army. I think the three are somewhat unique. And, well, I just wasn’t satisfied with a lot of the pictures I took at the pits, especially given how heavily photographed they’ve been.

Thanks to my Uncle David for the idea.

Note: I’ll probably be returning to Xi’an later this year. And, as with the previous three trips, it’ll be by soft-sleeper (overnight train).
