Photographer's Note

Shenyang:
Originally called Shen, a Mongol trading center from the 10th to the 12th century AD.
Renamed Feng-tien, under Chinese control during 1368-1625;
and, as Mukden and Shengking, was an early capital (1625-1644) of the Qing (Manchu) dynasty (1644-1911).
~Not many people know this but Shenyang also has it's own FORBIDDEN CITY~

The Mukden Incident (1913) marked the start of the Japanese conquest of Manchuria, Shenyang was looted of its industrial equipment, and in 1945 the city was returned to China and renamed Shenyang in 1948.
(1949-1954) It was the capital of the short-lived Northeast Administrative Region and was rebuilt as a diversified industrial center in the 1950s.

But this is what i like to do 'on the streets', even after being in China for almost 3, stuff like this still makes me go 'ah.. cool...'.

PS Still trying to figure out the ropes with my new E-300. :)
