The pace of change sometimes outstrips the ability to deliver it. Keeping the balance is a constant struggle as old Chongqing gives way to the new. Regeneration strips away the old at an alarming rate whilst landmark projects recreate that which was lost in previous eras. Personal motorised transport is on the increase whilst the aging fleets of buses grunt their way around the city. A precarious labour force of 50,000 Bang Bang men carry the goods and materials of the city around on their shoulders whilst the emerging middle class walk their toy dogs for show. The rural workforce enters and leaves the city like breath entering and leaving the body with each swing of the economy....and sometimes you can even catch a glimpse of a blue sky.

HEllo Kev, a catching image with a note to give some thoughts. Crazy world we live in!

Dunno why you are shooting street with the long lens, ideal would be anything from 10-35mm not more, and its china, would have loved to see the entire story..a wider story..this feels choked..
but again what the perspective of what you are documenting, all is good kev

Hello my dear Kev
So spectacle and amazing shot.
You have gotten perfect shutter chance indeed.
Perfect stable/balanced framework and well organized composition as usual. B&W description is so tasteful. Congratulation on your great job, thanks for sharing and have a good day of midweek!
Best regards, Takero

excellent, I really like this one - notwithstanding the abundance of gray, ahahaha! :)
good moment to shoot, balanced distribution of elements, the young man's look that says a lot...
I don't agree with sayeed about the lens choice, as a matter of fact I like the lack of close-up, wide-angle distortion here.
ah well - de gustibus etc., the Romans used to say :)
