West Lake in Sidney David Gamble's Eyes 2017-05-11
Sidney David Gamble (1890 – 1968) was an economist, humanitarian and photographer who devoted himself to studying the economics of China. During his lifetime, he visited China for four extended periods, first in 1908, and then from 1917 to 1919, 1924 to 27 and 1931 to 1932. During this time, he took over 5,000 black-and-white photos and 30 films, capturing not only the architecture, people and scenery but events significant too. He is now best known for his remarkable and extensive photographs of China, which include ones that depict the West Lake.

Lotus Flowers – Breezing Us Through History2017-06-27
West Lake, a pearl in Hangzhou’s heavenly earth, features different scenes in different seasons and in summer, the best scene to sprout out is that of the lotus flower. When the time comes, a stretch of lotus flowers can be seen lining the lakes borders and as they sway in the breeze they add cool and charm to the city’s most sweltering summer days.
