China. Province of Henan. Village Xiaotan. An old woman stands in the sun near the entrance door to her house. A boy rides a bicycle. The walls close to the door are painted and words are written in chinese letters to wish luck, happiness, wealth and a long life. The last wall is painted with a bucolic traditional chinese landscape - a sunset, a lake, a river, a waterfall, a forest, some deers and a heron © 2004 Didier Ruef
