Crane City


This picture was taken in Dongzhimen, in the north east side of the city.

And there's five cranes in this shot where a series of apartment towers are being built.

So imagine a whole city filled in cranes. That's Beijing madly trying to finish all its major building projects before the Olympics.

That's so that the air will be slightly clearer before the Games begin.

Well, that's the plan...

this is the price we pay for modernization and a sign of progress. nature/market will find a plateau, that is where a happy medium is.
