    I love these pictures so much, especially the 7th and the last one. Both of them show the beauty and ability of human beings in the field of art and technology. Behind beautiful pictures, that let us see today, are efforts of worker, engineers, artists who has worked for advances. I saw that and admired them so much. Hope that people always find out positive things hidden under faces and everyday activities. Thank VOA for showing real and precious pictures reflecting our growing world today.
