Photo of the Week – Beijing on a Sunny Day?

Beijing is well, and fairly, known for its pollution problem.  This photo from 2002 probably is from a “good” day.  I imagine the situation has gotten worse over the years.  However, what really makes me wonder in this picture is the ratio of cars to bicycles.  I wonder if there is that much space for bicycles anymore…

  1. A shame you don’t have a picture of present day Beijing. Who knows, maybe you couldn’t distinguish cars fom bicycles as a result of the increasing pollution.
