This is one of the wonders of the world! The wall was built, rebuilt, and maintained between the 5th century BC and the 16th century to protect the northern borders of the Chinese Empire from Xiongnu attacks. The Great Wall stretches over approximately 6,400 km (4,000 miles) from Shanhaiguan in the east to Lop Nur in the west. The wall itself can be seen from the earth’s low orbit! So they say ;) The watchtowers along the wall are a very impressive feature. The details on the brick work were interesting.
These images of the Great Wall were taken at the lomo congress held in 2004 which took place in Beijing – China. The Great Wall is a really cool place to visit and you need to take a cable car up to the top unless you want to walk all the way up :) You get a great sense of history, and it feels like your traveling back in time somehow.

Solène Ballesta is a Parisian photographer who started photography at 15 years old. This talented photographer was awarded in 2014 by the special mention of the young fashion photography Picto Awards. In her shots, Solène drives us to an enchanted world. For this series, she used the Daguerreotype Achromat Art Lens and she's telling us the story of a woman who is waiting for someone or something in her small theater and who decides to venture to the morning mist. “It is the uncertainty that charms one. A mist makes things wonderful.” said Oscar Wilde.
