#Photography on the Blog 6/10

You may be concerned about helicopter parenting and with good reason but it's not likely you can match these Chinese mothers.

The children can't even escape them in a testing hall and what's that shaker thing held be Mama No. 1 on the left.  Is that a Whacker for kids who do not perform well.  We see a whole lotta strange in China this day.

What say all of us dress in white to sit outside some beautiful buildings and eat.  We don't know why and we're quite sure it is not necessary to know.

So long as there are walls, humans will continue climbing over them.  It's in our nature and the politics be damned.

Don't worry, little dogie.  You appear to have a strong future in American politics.

Moscow, Russia

Golf offers nothing except boredom, overweight people, and a future of sexual assistance from chemical aids but Putin remains a spry chap although he usually looks better than at this moment.  He's not a physically large man so participating in a hockey fight may not have been his best choice but his size may mean better speed and agility ... which also do not seem to serve him so well in this particular moment.
