Shanghai Trip 2008 (16 pics F100)

Just had a business trip to Shanghai last month. Weather wasn't good at all and my schedule pretty tight, yet I found the life around so vivid and the environment (especially the "harmonious contrast" between old and new) so exciting that I couldn't help taking as many shots as possible... I somehow felt like a child looking at a new world for the first time.:-)

(PS. Exif info should be intact...)

1. "arriving in bad weather..." – Pudong International Airport

2. "waiting at a crossroad..." - legacy of the bicycle era? Like it or not, I was seeing much less bicycles but more Audi or Benz than I've expected... Xing 'an Road, Luwan District

3. "old shanghai and a new german car flying by..." – Puan Road, Luwan District

4. "old shanghai and a relaxing saturday afternoon..." – Ji'an Road, Luwan District

5. "old shanghai and a fruit store..." – Ji'an Road, Luwan District

6. "old shanghai and a back alley..." – Jing'an District

7. "urban regeneration..." – a huge redevelopment site. Glad to find that not everyone passing by was indifferent... Weihai Lu, Jing'an District

8. "sorry, couldn't help it..." – Not only were I and the passerby in the previous photo attracted to the remains, this guy had also found it a great place... Weihai Lu, Jing'an District

9. "the two tenors of new shanghai..." – Shanghai World Financial Center on the left and Jin Mao Tower on the right. The latter was the tallest building in China (the 5th in the world) until 2007 when it was surpassed by the former... Lujiazui, Pudong

10. "worship of some kind?!:-)" – Lujiazui, Pudong

11. "bank buildings..." – Lujiazui, Pudong

12. "new shanghai... lujaizui skyscrapers" – some interesting diverse building forms... Lujiazui, Pudong

13. huangpu river

14. "streamlined..." – this new airport has exceeded my expectation both aesthetically and functionally... Pudong International Airport

15. "farewell..." – I was already missing the people and places I met in this fascinating city... Pudong International Airport

16. "the sea of clouds..." – somewhere south of Shanghai and north of Hong Kong... virtually the last shot of this trip cause the battery had run down after this was taken...

Hope you enjoy these pics but I should refrain from posting more photos on this "talk" forum. If you're interested, more can be found here:
