Here are some of my favorite images from roaming around Shanghai:
above: in an alleyway of the painfully hip commercial art area called the Taiking Road Art Centre
above: the view of Pudong River from my hotel room. Yes folks: that's SMOG.
above: one of the many the Mao Tse-Tung tribute sections of the Shanghai Chinese Propaganda Museum, though this one had an impressive collection of mini Mao statues that filled a wall.
above: OMG! A Smart Car in Shanghai! Modernization to the max.
above: Crazy Harajuku-type fashionistas populate Shanghai too.
