My wife recently returned to Wuhan for a long stay. Our phone conversations were filled with tales of how China is changing, almost in some cases, beyond recognition. Streets have altered names, giant buildings sprout like topless mushroom clouds, six lane highways roar above abandoned neighborhoods, the air is gray in daytime and iridescent at night. Construction, traffic and sirens create the noisy symphony of a rising economy. The broad, dark Yangzi river threads silently through the turbulence. One rainy night Wei said she became lost and had to rely on a taxi to help find her way home, inspiring this image.

Alan Gilholm This resonates so much with my - limited - experiences in Shanghai. I can smell and hear this. There's something about the rain falling on the dust! The subtle KFC sign is very effective.
