Charming old shot. I forgot you were also in China. EWhen in beijing, impossinble not to go and see this world wonder. i like the composition here with the wall disappearing some far away. in this part the wall seems fresly renovated. Impressive view. But I doubt that it can be seen from outer space, as sometimes we can read.

Sorry to get on my high horse here, but you pushed one of my (many) buttons.

Ooooh an oldie. Was that called film in those days? LOL! I like how the wall trails off in the BG. Too bad about the dust in the top right corner or is that something else?
I have to go to this place on time too
you have been there 23 years ago not bad

The wall of china is a place I have to meet before I die.
must have been una unique experience. A nice photo
How nice is this take taken from back then before it was really open to tourists. Even then there are still plenty of people here. I was here about 15 years ago, when it was started, there were so many people and it was not as impressive as I had expected to be because of that. Nevertheless it is still a place to see for sure.
I love this one, not too many people and the scan quality is good.

Nice shot, and I'm getting vertigo just looking at it! This looks to be Badaling, the closest part of the Wall to Beijing, and consequently hugely crowded these days. You were lucky to get this shot with your group by itself. Nice view off into the distance, too.
