China leaves me suprised every visit. The first six pictures were taken in Beijing in 2005 where there was very much an atmosphere of authoritarianism with highly visible security and military in many areas.

The following six pictures were taken 5 years later in 2010 in Guanghzhou, a city with a population of about 10 million situated about 80 miles north of Hong Kong. On this occassion the military were far more discrete whilst a more consumer lifestyle has been allowed to develop.
