Resting on Jianguo Road

Jianguo Road, Shanghai 2011

One of the things I like about Shanghai, is how it has 4 distinct seasons. When I took this photo, it was Summer. And it gets hot and humid. So hot and humid, the walls seem to sweat. Time to find some shade and have a rest.

The other thing I like about Shanghai, is the contrast between the modern and the traditional. In this case, surrounded by electric vehicles, the trader pushes a handcart laden with traditional chairs.

Another view/take on the same subject. If I could only see thumbnail pictures, I would prefer the first version, in a larger picture, I think I would prefer this version.

This is a jpeg from a much bigger file. I think if I was reprocessing it, I would try to bring out more detail in the man smoking. He has tilted his head in an interesting way.

Middle-aged white bloke. Wanders around with a camera (sometimes just his phone) taking pictures. Some he likes, most he doesn’t. Likes animals. Likes the seaside, not so sure he likes the sea.
