POTD: Smog As Art

Smog As Art
Beijing, China
2016

I spent our last day in Beijing at the China National Art Museum. They have a very impressive collection of both traditional and contemporary Chinese art. As usual when visiting an inspiring art collection, it energized my own quest for artful photographs. I took this one out the window when I returned to our hotel room. The smog (“only” rated as very unhealthy today as opposed to the hazardous level that has been more common this week) created a lovely yellow filter effect, making for a very painterly image. I don’t know if it’s China National Art Museum worthy, but it pleases me.
