Weekly Photo Challenge: URBAN

This week’s photo challenge is urban. I come from a small town and living in Shanghai is the ultimate URBAN. One thing you will always find in the skyline here is a building crane.

More Building in Shanghai

I was really surprised to see the amount of building going on at home this summer in Toronto… it isn’t home to as many people as Shanghai is, but there is a lot of growth.

Urban to me means growth… things have changed so much since I was growing up. Actually things have changed a lot just since last summer.

Check out Word Press to join in to the photo challenge or see more examples.

Stay tuned…

    I was telling someone just recently that “Urban Sprawl” has not touched the tiny village on The Cabot Trail where I grew up…not even a Tim Horton’s. The mountain at the back and the Atlantic Ocean in front has preserved this little strip of paradise.

    • I haven’t been back since I was a teen… it would be interesting to see it now. I know things at home have changed a lot where i grew up. I see it each time I come home.

    LOL!!! I saw your first picture and all I could think of was… “I’ve been there!” And I was shocked because honestly, all I saw was “Canadian” in your title and I was like, I know I am nuts, but that is not Canada! That is Shanghai!


    I so need to read the tag lines on blogs!

    Great pictures!

    • Thanks… yes transplanted Canadian for the last 2 years… now into our 3rd here in China.
      Thanks so much for the visit and glad I kept you on your toes 😉

  4. Wow! Shanghai is spectacular. I went there once and the view of the city from a boat ride at night was amazing. The lights, the buildings, the culture…beautiful!

    • Shanghai is growing so fast. The skyline is filled with building cranes. Even more now then when we first moved here 2 years ago. I was even more surprised with the amount of building going on at home… almost comparable to Shanghai.
