I’m not even sure which hotel in Beijing this is! (edit: comments indicate it is the Grand Millennium Hotel in Beijing) I was randomly walking around an urban area and peered inside some windows to see this. It looked so amazing inside — I had no choice but to go right into the lobby to set up! I was able to squeeze off a few rounds before security stopped me.
Security came up to me and asked, in perfect English, “Please, sir, you cannot take pictures!”
I responded by saying, “But sir, you don’t understand! I don’t even speak English!”
This left him confused for long enough for me to take another bracketed set. Then I left.
