Picture of the Day - Calligraphy in Temple of Heaven Park
This gentleman was practicing calligraphy with a broom-sized brush at the Temple of Heaven park in Beijing. He uses water as his ink. His work evaporates. Even if you don't read Chinese you can see that the characters he is writing are of uniform size and shape something that takes a lot of practice.
