Old Guard on Great Wall - Majiazi, China

"He stands as the ancient watchmen did... on a peak a thousand metres high, on a Great Wall more than six hundred years old.
It’s now his makeshift home, a torn tent in its shadow. Thinking of how he got here.
Years of tumultuous changes that swept across a country, transforming the settlements below into a very different China. An industrial giant, a military force, a diplomatic ‘Wolf Warrior’.
But for the man in the faded uniform, little has changed.
Limestone bricks crumble underfoot, flowering branches scratch at the ramparts. And he still survives by selling apricots to anyone who will buy."
