Hello dear friends? How was your day? Recently it was increasing hot here in Nanjing. Summer is really severe. In the city, in the office, the air-conditioner is on busy work hour after hour. There are still some people who can not enjoy the coolness bring by the air-conditioner in the hot summer days, rather they will have to work in the outside. One of the group of people is the peasant.
I found this set of photos in Lin Shengku’s blog. His photos well captured the peanut who worked in the rye. In recent years, China is experiencing an urbanization process, and the young people in the village tend to go to big cities to seek for work opportunity instead of grow crops. The old people worried: If we all do not grow crops, how can we have grain to eat? The young people answered: if only I have money, I can buy almost anything. So the young pack the bag and go to work outside, only old people and some middle-aged people left. They become the the catcher in the rye. They expect good weather for the crops and harvest season. They joy and hardships are showed together on their face.
Today I would like to share this set of the photography with you: The catcher in the rye.
