The Dynasty’s Royal Retreat amidst the Lilypads
Ahhh… Chinese royalty. Of all the royalty in the world, I don’t think anyone lived quite as well as the Chinese. Maybe that’s open for debate? I suppose luxury is a state of mind, but they certainly had all the component parts.
Here in Hangzhou, the royals would summer, languishing about these gardens and lakes, staring out across these lily ponds.
In other news, I have a new article that is a short version of my HDR Tutorial up over at Abduzeedo, which is one of the world’s top design blogs. I keep that site in my RSS news reader and can usually find some good design inspiration there!
