A young woman poses for a photograph in the shadow of one of the many, many palaces in the Forbidden City. I was not the intended photographer for her pose (rather her friend off camera to the left was), nor was I framing the image with her in mind–she just walked into it while I was getting reading to take the shot. Without knowing it, she made this a more interesting composition than what I would have gotten otherwise.

Larry, that is such an interesting shadow! I first thought of a battleship like the kind on the ocean (and reminiscent of WWII photos). But it also looks like the Star Wars variety starships! Very Cool!
Yes, I thought of an aircraft carrier looming over a dock when I saw it.
