I found this graffiti cat outside the flat where I lived in Wokingham (Berkshire, UK). At the time, as you can see, I took a photo of it – but didn’t really think any more about it. But then I read this news story on the bbc website about this street artist – Catsy, who it turns out does his work in – Wokingham. Well at least now, the mystery is over!
One of the things I like about taking photos on the street, is showing people going about everyday life. Shanghai has a particularly vibrant street life, where you only have to stand still for a few moments before something unexpected happens.
As I remember it, I was visiting during a really hot spell, in the middle of the summer. As usual, I spent most of my time just wandering around the city, ducking into shopping malls whenever I felt I needed to cool down. On this occasion, I was in Jing’An, near the park, when these workmen walked past me, carrying their sheet of glass.
