This shot, was taken from a pedestrian over-crossing outside my apartment complex, is looking down Hui Xin Xi JIe as it crosses over the North Fourth Ring Road. On the left in the background are three structures that I’ve previously photographed: the abandoned building, the golden potato, and the smokestack.
On the right, is the entrance to an extremely convenient subway station. A bit farther back is a building under construction.
Proof once again that, although we certainly have our days of bad traffic and horrible air pollution (and even days with both), we still have days like Chong Chong’s grandmother remembers from her youth.
