  • Colors in Xiamen Tunnel

    This is a tunnel walkway space on Gulangyu Island, Xiamen. The whole stretch of the walkway uses indirect white light as functional lighting, but there is a bench lighted with color lighting over the night, which is more interesting in the oppressive space, which I think is a very romantic technique.

    Is this a Hero or a Villain to you?

    Daytime lighting is more difficult in a tunnel.

    This is because you suddenly enter a dark tunnel from the bright outside.

    But it‘s interesting that stylish light appears only at night.

    Although the relationship between the roadway and sidewalk is not clear from this photo alone...
