China Street Scenes – Delivery Bicycle with Front Cart, originally uploaded by Serenity in China.
I took my Sigma 10-20mm wide angle lens with me today when I went to do a recording session with Julianne.
We were driven from one campus to another by car and I took advantage of this by rolling down the window and shooting different street scenes that are extremely common in China.
This shot in particular is one of favorites. How many elderly people in North America have the physical strength and stamina to ride and power one of these bicycles? I doubt very many could manage it.
I think there’s a lot to be said about how healthy and strong elderly people are in China, and how much we can learn from them too.
