Soldiers in Beijing 
Many of my photos in this part of the world have been shot on the go with my Nexus 5 or Nexus 6 mobile phone. Usually from a taxi or while walking to/from a meeting or meal, stopping for only a few seconds to compose and then snap the shutter if something caught my eye, then sprinting to catch up with colleagues.
These days mobile phone camera resolution is incredibly decent as long as you don’t zoom in, which immediately results in image degradation and pixelation, as most phone cameras only provide a digital zoom vs. a real optical zoom lens.
Sometimes I’m OK with the unintended effect of a digital zoom, as it can amplify the mood of a particular scene. Most of the time however, I shoot full-tilt wide with whatever phone I’ve got on me and crop/edit later.
I’ve got way too many photos of this region to share. For now here are some from my phone cam archives.
