I know I said that I'd put up all the shots from my China trip, but having trawled through them again I found two more: this one, and the one I'll put up tomorrow. As with yesterday's shot I guess this is also about contrast – though this one is about east meets west rather than rich meets poor.

As an aside: this was one of the first shots I took as I wandered around Dalian and captures, albeit accidentally, some of the anxiety I felt while taking photographs in a culture that I knew little or nothing about. See if you can spot what made me especially jumpy as I took this shot.
