Beijing is a city of striking contrasts. It now offers some of the world's most advanced architecture and technology. Its booming economy paces the world marketplace. Yet in its older neighborhoods, makeshift, tangled patchworks of electrical wires such as these symbolize just how far Beijing and China itself have yet to go. A closer look reveals satellite dishes and television antennas on the roof of the building in the background. I blend the tangled wires into them, and illuminate this paradox with a setting sun. All the elements of the story are in place. High technology, aging infrastructure, and a setting sun are incongruously juxtaposed in the heart of Beijing.
