Photography in the style of traditional Chinese painting of the Song and Yuan dynasties by Don Hong-Oai.

 

There are lots more; go look. They’re sensational.

    Ahhhh! Now you have done it. As a fan of steampunk, your linking to this site has now destined me to a lifetime of hanging out at http://www.retronaut.co

    Thank you, Ophelia :)

    Now to get some inspiration on steampunking stuff.

    BTW: how times have changed, and we don’t have magazines like these any more:

    Yes, OB, thanks for the link. I have passed it on to a friend who is a keen photographer.

    It must be viral by now.

    Saw the photos, fell in love with them, ordered a calendar.
    I hope you’re proud of yourself now!
