Dalian is famous in China for its policewomen directing traffic in their white boots.

"The cute domestic auto brand Qirui QQ vehicle soon became a new sightseeing along the neat streets." (From the Dalian city website)

定陵 Dingling Tomb (“Tomb of Stability”) / 中國北京明十三陵 Ming Tombs, Beijing, China / SML.20140501.6D.31515.P1.BW

Dingling (定陵 Dìng Lìng; literally: "Tomb of Stability"), one of the tombs at the Thirteen Tombs of the Ming Dynasty site, is the tomb of the Wanli Emperor (萬曆). It is the only Ming tomb to have been excavated. It also remains the only intact imperial tomb, of any era, to have been excavated since the founding of the People’s Republic of China, a situation that is almost a direct result of the fate that befell Dingling and its contents after the excavation.

Pictured is one of the tunnels inside the tomb. It is very eerie. It reminded me somewhat of the Eastern State Penitentiary in Pennsylvania which I visited a long while back.

Photographed with the Canon EOS 6D + Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L USM.
