Raise Your Phones for the People

What can you say about this! An absolute classic, although the subjects of the photo probably don’t realise just how symbolic it is:

The old generation (loyal comrades holding up Chairman Mao’s little red book), replaced by the younger generation (dressed in jeans and a tee-shirt and holding up a mobile phone).

In a way, that sums up just what modern China is like: racing to become a modern super power, but becoming a little Westernised in the process.
