Beijing snapshots | the grey belt

While monitoring the metropolis’s mobility, once can only be surprised how the city differs from one day to another. Following up on Sunday’s Beijing | the blue belt trip, movingcities roamed the second ring road on Monday morning. Another excursion in density and visibility, another grey architectural anatomy. This time in the other direction, from Gulou till Fuchengmen subway station. Another hazy day, more cars jamming under a grey roof. The city was back to normal, out of focus, and trapped in a climatic condition that is notoriously known as the Beijing blur. An impression, with a pinch of contrast added to the pictures.
