Old Beijing is diappearing. I like Beijing and want to do something to keep the traditional memory.  I know there's a group of people who  take up their cameras and rush ahead of the bulldozers, trying to save bits of the memories contained in the centuries-old lanes, or hutongs that crisscross the city center. They call themselves the Photographing and Recording Team of Old Beijing.

The old will be replaced by the new sooner or later...! It seems what's been done

by departments concerned in the preotection of the old serves only to slow down

the process...!

really?

i don't think they are sponsered by any official heritage groups. perhaps the only reason why they do this photography and recording is their love of the city, of the old and tradtions hidden in the couryard and small lanes...
