I was mainly attracted by the wood lines and patterns when I took this picture. I cropped this slightly and enhanced the wood colors. This was shot in an afternoon when we were hiking in Huizhou, China.
The small town changed a lot since I was there more than ten years ago. We found new shops, malls, Walmarts, hotels, restaurants. We even saw Lexus promoting their new LS in our hotel lobby, and they sold it on the day.
Somethings remained. The air smelled the same in the night breeze, hinting an early summer, and I still found the same street lamps along the lake. I am glad I revisited my mom's home town.
