Take a trip back in time- China 1998. This set is all Great Wall outside of Beijing China. All shots taken with a Pentax K1000 processed on Kodachrome 100 into prints then converted.

I was young in those days and yet the climb took our breath away. I couldnt image hauling stone to those heights

The steps were so narrow and the climb so steep- many people would fall

It was a very tough climb Jay. I cannot even image how they hauled those stones to such heights. Bucket list checked off!

An impressive monument, and great points of view too. One day I will go there (but not now of course)

A bucket item as they say! It is a must... I would love to go back with a high resolution camera next time
