Beijing (China)

I took this photo on my last morning in Beijing. I was wandering near my hotel looking for a place to buy breakfast and came across this rather unusual scene of a man fishing in an urban river. The lighting and lush green color might suggest this was taken in rural China, but just outside the frame is a harsh industrial landscape that is cropped out of the scene. I was quite taken by the juxtaposition of a romantic vision of China captured in the camera's eye and the urban landscape that is not visible.
