Light Court In An Old Apartment

The light court was dim and almost ivy-covered

Shot in the city of Taipei, Taiwan.

I found a big old-fashioned apartment during walking the streets. Many shops were seen on the ground floor and the upper tiers seemed to be dwellings. I was attracted and entered the big architecture because I felt a local atmosphere. The passages were dim and most of the shops were closed already. No one was walking. It was deserted and silent. I couldn't hear the bustling of the big city.

In the meantime, I came to its light court. The building was high and the sunlight didn't come to the light court sufficiently. The empty space stretched to the sky. And many windows of the dwellings were seen on the wall.

Interestingly, there was usually a space covered by the iron bars outside of the windows in Taipei. The dwellers might want to expand their living space as possible as they could. The windows here also had such space.
