Stand Apart by berndt2

Summer Palace, Beijing.

I’ll be honest – rampant pollution of the kind they had in Beijing back when I was there in 2005 can have its upside – like this picture! It was taken late morning on my visit. I’m sure taking it didn’t do my lungs any good, but the camera didn’t seem to mind.

Bernd Talasch doesn’t remember being hatched in a research laboratory in Omaha in the late 1950s so maybe that never happened. (Placeholder bio – remember to replace).
