The summer rains have cometh. June saw longer days and rarely-seen in the city sunsets, which inspired Chengdu’s talented community of photographers to hit the streets. This is June, through their lens:

The Vatican comes to Chengdu


Tianfu Da Dao’s Great Pyramids


Grandmas getting giddy


A pearl of purple


Earthquakes go but are not forgotten


Sunset and skyscrapers


We don’t mind how, as long as it’s Mahjong


Chengdu comes alive at night


She’s a natural beauty

CDIS China Chengdu


Pao Pao 熬菜!


Glow sticks grow from sticks


Stoney faced


Walk through the past


RuPaul eat your heart out
