"This beautiful photo captures a moment of a time gone by. China has been changing at a very fast pace over the past several decades, and scenes like this one are hard to find, if they are not gone already. There's something about this image that captures the sense of time for me, though, more so than many others. I think it might be the wisps of smoke and the moment between the boys, one having just put his arm around the other as they each take a step along the road, but I am drawn in as my eyes explore the photo and the smoke drifts by."
