The Motion of Shanghai

I crossed under the river one night from the Bund to get a closer look at the Oriental Pearl Tower. There was a cool fountain at the bottom and no tourists around.

This is a good thing, since it is always hard to make tourists look “cool” in photos. No matter what, everyone ends up looking like a gawking Rick Steves. Speaking of which, his travel series on PBS called “Europe through the Back Door” always gave me cause for concern.

    I do believe you are the first to capture a UFO rather clearly (far left). Love the sky and perspective used.

    Great shot, lucky you not having any tourist around. I wish that was how it was for me on my last trip!!

  • Dod McKnight

    Sweet, sweet job my boy, loving the colours

  • cumidanciki

    yea, it’s amazing how such a crowded area can look so deserted in this pic. The tower isn’t so high but looks deceivingly so at this angle (esp the smaller skyscraper in the background)

  • David Brown

    Nice shot! I’m heading off there tomorrow, adn it’s nice to be abe to plan the trip through looking at someone else’s shots.

    And you make it look so cool.

  • Michael Appelmans

    cool catch of the statue reflected in the orb!

  • Terry Reinert

    Great shot! One of my favorites so far. Keep it up!!

  • Stuck In Customs

    Cool – thanks — glad you guys like this one.

    David – you’ll have a great time exploring.

    Cumidanciki – the long shutter speeds with high aperture settings help blur out any tourists that might have been walking through – that is a nice trick.

  • Lauren Jorgensen

    Hahaha! So you don’t use the back door method of exploration?!?! lol
    I think you’re right; that title could really confuse some people : P

    Great shot as always! Love the sky.

  • Suzanne Williams
