Wow, another Big Picture really big picture:

It’s all so obvious and in vivid colors! So much seems to happen in Sichuan Province! I know they don’t deserve all the mayhem and wreckage of homes and families!

Big Picture offers us just that, big pictures. Here is one of these images from the Zhouqu area in Gansu Province hit by a massive landslide on Aug 8, 2010.

Compare this image to the one just below of Yangtze River water rushing out of the 3 Gorges Dam. Can any contrast be starker.

There are lots of international reports about the misery of Pakistani millions, but you don’t hear much out of  Gansu province.

But I found another image of contrast from an FP collection:

Here is an image of Chongching which is more in line with the building frenzy image of China!
