This is a companion image to my last post, also from rural China. It is a quiet scene, but there is a lot to see. There is a pump house on an irrigation pond, harvested fields with stacks of rice stalks, and a few of the ubiquitous Chinese electricity wires. If you look closely, you can see a dog sitting on the pump house porch. Our guide told us that when he was a child he loved to play cowboys and indians among the rice stacks and he showed us how to make them. As for the wires, in this image I believe they are not a blight but a touch of country charm.
