Unofficial Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflection

Hi All,

Again I had a great picture in mind of a small pond that was like glass reflecting some amazing images of fall colours… I don’t have a copy of that here in China, so I started looking for something in the archives. I came across this one and thought it was fun and you can get a glimpse of me 🙂 That is me behind the camera.

We went to the World Financial Tower last winter which, is currently the tallest building in Shanghai (but not for long its rival is about 2/3 of the way up and growing fast!). There is a lot of cool buildings on the Pudong (New Area) side of the River, especially in the Lujuizai (Lou -Jazz- Way) area where you can see the Pearl Tower, and Jinmoa Tower. WFT (not wtf!!!) It is also called the “Bottle Opener” because of its rectangular opening near the top. You can go to 3 observation decks one of which has a glass floor to see the road below. In one area I happened to look up and see a mirrored or polished ceiling and I took this snap of us and other ‘tourists’ walking by.

Reflection 😉

  1. From the Unofficial Photo Challenge thay Ailsa started up. Thanks Ailisa 🙂
    As there was no official weekly photo challenge this week, Ailsa at Where’s my backpack? has posted a challenge and would love you all to join in. See here: http://wheresmybackpack.wordpress.com/2012/05/12/reflections/ Looking forward to seeing your Reflections! xxx

  2. Great one!

  3. Nice one, look at you hiding behind that camera! I bet the view was incredible from up there, pretty high up, isn’t it? My only frame of reference for it is that rubbish film with Catherine Zeta Jones and Sean Connery trying to rob the bank! 🙂

    • It is 101 stories up for the top observation deck, so it is pretty cool… although the weather is often a mix of haze, dampness and smog, so it really limits how far you can see.I would love to see it on a clear day -the view would be incredible. It was cool to see other things from a new point of view and try to find our house.
      Thanks for your comment and stopping bye. Your reflection pictures were super BTW!

      • I’m so glad you enjoyed them, they were a total experiment but I was really happy with how they turned out. Tricky stuff, though, I had to run to avoid being splashed by the puddles!

  5. The lady with the red camera on top of Shanghai’s tallest building. What an exciting experience. We went to Shanghai in 2005 when my wife was about 3 months pregnant. We had a bay cruise at night and the lights were amazing. Like Disney but of a more exotic, spectacular journey. It was beautiful. Love the post. Thanks.

    • Thanks 🙂
      My school sent us newbies on a night cruise and I was mesmorized by the skyline and lights. I actually posted one of the pictures for UNUSUAL photo challenge becasue you can see the clouds at night! The same photo was also featured on the Weather Channel Back Home !
      Thanks again for your comments and stopping by.
