Little Boy, Chicken, and Cross of Straw

I had attended my friend's wedding in Nanchang, central China. The next day, a friend and I ventured into the countryside, and after riding a series of ever-smaller buses, we wound up in a village called Luotiancun, where the locals were harvesting rice and burning the fields. As his family worked, this young boy watched me silently and earnestly. A chicken wandered past, disinterested. The rice fields were burning just beyond us, thick with white smoke.
Location: Luotiancun village, near Nanchang, China
