Pulses of Life

Photo essay: China's back alleys

by Parviz Forghani
China is a beautiful country full of natural picturesque scenery, giant pandas, the great wall and many things more such as beating life in its back alleys. I recently visited two cities -- Beijing and Tai Yuan -- and tried to touch the pulses of life with the lens of my camera.

Beautiful! No tourist places, only chinese life. Great!


I was surprised to see many of them smiled whe you took their photos. Could it be that it was not Beiging? It was in Tai Yuan then? Why Tai Yuan? merci!
