Photo of the day: Smoking Area in the Woods

0

All this week, Radii is posting a photo essay by Liu Qilin (aka Jady) entitled Lost Land of my Campus: “An area less traveled or known by others. Like a desert. A paradise.”

After quite a long time, finally I picked up my curiosity again to step into one of the mysterious areas of my campus(Beijing Normal University). Beside the gate there is a room with many beautiful fish, which I can see through the windows. Entering the gate, I found it was like an abandoned garden, where everything seemed to have frozen for a long time, except captive animals. Many items were put there, rusting or growing on their own.

A dustbin for cigarette ash is situated near a bamboo patch, alongside an old bicycle — quite a funny pairing. If you smoke here it’s easy to catch fire. But in the end, the ashes of cigarettes and leaves will eventually merge.
