The Olympics Comes to Beijing

My trip to China coincided with preparations to host the Olympics…and it was to be a great coming-out party for the newly awakened up-to-date China. Capturing a view of the Great Wall with the Olympic logo merged antiquity with modernity in my viewfinder. That the air was clear and the sky was blue was a novelty as pollution clouded most of my visit…and the landscape even had a blush of color.
