Despite the explosion of car ownership in China especially in the major cities, bicycle is still the number one mode of transport in the country. However China's bicycle fleet is declining- it has declined by 35% from 670 million to 435 million between 1995 and 2005. Nevertheless this still dwarfs the car population estimated at around 10 million vehicles nation-wide. As such it is not surprising that Chinese are very adept at using bicycle- not only for riding from one place to another, but for bonding between family members. This boy is still half asleep while his father' lovingly send him to school in the morning.

“I treat the photograph as a work of great complexity in which you can find drama. Add to that a careful composition of landscapes, live photography, the right music and interviews with people, and it becomes a style.” – Ken Burns
