The Egg, Beijing, Eddie Fletcher
One of the most striking additions to Beijing's long list of architectural wonders, the National Grand Theater or National Center for Performing Arts (known rather more colloquially as "the Egg") provides an interesting counterpoint to the classic Chinese style of the neighboring Forbidden City. Here, photographer Eddie Fletcher has captured its graceful dome and waters in all their reflective glory, the lowering sunlight illuminating one side as the moon rises in the distance. It's a remarkable shot of a remarkable building and the tiny figure perched on top completes the picture. (More after the jump.) Eddie Fletcher has been working in China as an automotive engineer for over six years now and tells us he finds China to be incredibly diverse with something new around every corner. He's enjoyed all the opportunities that his line of work has availed him to travel and see "the good and not-so-good" sides of China, opening up a whole new world of photography. And how has he got there? Why, with Ctrip of course! This image came to us by way of the Ctrip China Travel Photo Contest on Flickr but there are plenty more to see at his Eddie Fletch Flickr photostream. Got some great some China travel photos?
