Still Drawing

Over 5 years ago in Changsha, Hunan, I saw a group of children sitting on the sidewalk drawing traditional buildings.

Including a number of demolished neighborhoods and new shopping centers in the nearby area, much has changed in Changsha since I saw those children.

Recently in Shanghai, I saw another group of children similarly drawing the historical buildings at The Bund.

And it made me ponder how some things in China's rapidly growing cities change more slowly than others.
