Watery Hotel

Lijiang Hotel, Guilin

Lijiang Hotel, Guilin

No, the ceiling did not leak, and there was no moat around the front, but somewhere in this hotel was a mega-sized water pump.

Every night the Lijiang Waterfall Hotel holds a light and water show off its back side. After the Impressions of Sanjie Liu show the previous night in Yangshuo it seemed pretty ho-hum, but the engineering was impressive.

The neon lights in the area were also interesting.  This first shot was taken outside the restaurant where we ate supper (not in the hotel.)  I like the fact that it was an ART store, and it was the the typo created by the burned out light  that caught my eye.  I really like the composition and the colours.

The facade of the hotel: the stripes changed colour every few seconds.

The stripes gradually changed colour every few seconds.

Only twice did I try to shoot the interior of a hotel, and the other time it didn’t work!
