My Story
This is a typical alley deep inside a south China old town.
A scene from the street before my former house when I was a little child. It's in the deepest corner of an old town area. All these old alley have been pulled down for new zone. I had a chance to take some photos but I didn't. Now feel deeply sorry about this. It was a little hill there, but now it was dug into a cavern for parking lot, which hurts from the deepest part of my heart.

All I can say is WOW.
Or maybe WOAH or JEEZ or even OMG!
I'm not kidding, this is out of this world!
Where do I start? I don't know know where to start!
First, the overall sense of beauty is overwhelming and the color style captures the sense of memories perfectly. The lighting is dynamically gorgeous and the texture of the stone walls is something to behold. Every object is crafted with artistic genius and every bit of detail makes it a true Renaissance feel to it.
TysonTan has really outdone a awesome and truly remarkable masterpiece that will surely bring all of us a tearful and emotional trip down memory lane or, for this artwork, alley.
A winner in more ways than one!
