Sunday in Beijing
Here are images taken Sunday in Beijing from Times photographer-blogger Robert Gauthier.
Milky thick air hovers in a steamy haze over the Olympic Green venue where, only two days earlier, one could see for miles.
As night falls, the calm before the storm.
Dozens of young revelers frolic in cooling jets of water outside the National Aquatics Center late into the evening.
