Carved in Bamboo by Alex Jimenez
Tanzhe Temple, Beijing, China
The Chinese culture has seen so much change over the last few thousands years. While China is home to hundreds of stone temples that have extremely important historical significance, many of them have, in fact, been rebuilt and are just representations of the orignal. Yet, that in and of itself says something of importance about Chinese culture and history. China is a lot of things but perhaps most importantly, it is resilient. The title, which alludes to the common phrase "Carved in stone," is a reference to China's incredible ability to adapt and remake itself, as it has shown it can do over and over again. Bamboo is also a resilient plant and one that has significance in Chinese culture all to itself.

Poppies and Ruins by Carrie Murphy
These red poppies were indeed this red; no photoshop required. The symbol of the fallen soldier, this poppy is likely to represent many, many eras of battle. Luckily the ruins are still in good enough condition to inspire the scholar and traveler alike. The Celsus Library can be seen in the background.
