    Thanks for taking a peek at "my first flickr" photo. Returning the favor. Nice shot! This one shows the consequences of progress, I suppose.

    I'm writing for a french website of environmental information, and I'd like to publish your picture for my article on greemzer.fr. My boss still has to accept it, but if she does, would you mind that I use it? Of course I'll put your name at the end of the article.
    Thanks and nice picture

    I've only been in Beijing a few days, and it shocked me how smoggy it was, in the mid day just grey, grey... Is it always like that??

    I think yesterday was the worst day on record for pollution in this place. We do get plenty of nice days too but this photo shows that some things never change...
