Photographer's Note

This sculpture adorns the top of one of the Qingdao coastline's many small hills. To me it seems to be lamenting the development of the seaside, and the corresponding removal of natural experience. Today in Qingdao, one either walks through carefully controlled parks with sculptures selected for safety of interpretation (ne'er a raised hand!), or - if brave enough to swim - drowns in a sea of refuse. The grass in the parks is for viewing only and is not to be touched or walked on. Any open area that must be traversed is paved - this one is lucky, at least it has some grass in the cracks.

I had spotted this perspective while riding a bus on the previous day, but failed then to get the shot. Merely standing outside it would have been impossible to get the right angle. The bus was in motion when I took the shot.

Tech: USM, B&W conversion, resize, sharpen.
