Children In a Line - Shanghai, China - 1986

Took this photo through the bus window in Shanghai, China – 1986. The children inspired my large marker drawing on newsprint paper…then a children’s book 22 years after that…which now – almost 20 years after that – has a story behind its story that’s connected via a recent radio podcast interview:

  • I’ve just listened to this fascinating interview. Interesting to discover how much story can sometimes lie behind a beautiful picture book. Thanks for sharing the link!

    Pierr, I haven’t seen this photo. It is remarkable as an “image” for the word connected. The children all in a close-knit group and the 3 men each in their own”separate” pose. Really like this!!! Hugs, C

  • Great photo! My step mom is from Shanghai- I’ve never been, but really hope to one day! How did you like it?

      Thank you, Infinity! Shanghai was (it’s been nearly 30 years since my visit) an amazing experience. The sheer numbers of pedestrians…no room for even a bicycle…and colorful laundry hanging on long bamboo poles from every apartment balcony – second floor on up to the sky – on both sides of the street. I live my life completely spoiled by, and grateful for, the luxury of personal space.
