The sun is a big ball of fire. It looks more so filtered through the thick smoke we have had the last couple of summers. Summer last year the sun and fire dominated.
The Pic and a Word Challenge prompt and post for this week made me think of these pictures from two trips I took to China in 2014. In the post Patrick Jennings talked about how in India and China he felt like people were an intrinsic part of the scenery and I realized that, while I am often frustrated by their presence, he is right.
China is often a busy and crowded place, but there are also large expanses of space. A single person in the frame turns a photograph into a picture, something that tells a bit of a story.
