Decrepit gates ~ The Imperial Palace. Hue, Vietnam
Dec 06 2001


Like so much in the area, the once magnificent Imperial palace at the centre of the Citadel suffered the ravages of war and revolution. That evident violence (the center picture shows a gate where bullet holes can still clearly be seen) along with the decay that has been allowed to take hold, tells a greater story than any imagined magnificence this place once enjoyed.
