Rural China

 

From a visit to China some years ago - taken from the bus on the way back to Beijing from the Great Wall.  It just looked so incongruous - the combination of the old(ish) man with the cart and horse and the smartly dressed soldier (at least I assume it was a soldier), perhaps returning to his home in the country on leave?? But, there are any number of stories one could tell about it :-)

This is excellent, Tom.
I'm glad you had your camera ready - this is intriguing for sure!

Indeed so Tom. The soldier could be his son, or is in the process of arresting him for espionage, etc..
The soldier seem as surprised as you Tom...Great capture!
That is a great crop of corn behind them. I like the idea of imagining stories from photos. I have done that in art/creativity classes.
They certainly look to be in the middle of the countryside.
