This is a selection of my best travel and street photos from a 9-day visit to Beijing and Xi'an, China. Beijing is the capital of the People's Republic of China and its second largest city, with a total metropolitan population of 19.6 million. Xi'an, for those who don't already know, was the original capital of Imperial China and is where the terra cotta warriors are buried. In both cities I was fortunate to experience rare days of clear blue skies. Overcast skies due to air pollution is the norm. Regardless, the constant activity makes them as much a street and travel photographer's dream as they are a challenge.
