Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above

Being short I rarely look down on things πŸ˜‰ but here are a few examples with a bird’s eye view for this week’s photo challenge.

Looking down from the World Finicial Tower in Shanghai, China from 101 floors up over the Pearl Tower, Jin Mao Tower and Huangpu River March 2011.



Looking down at the surfΒ  lapping my toes in Cuba, Summer 2012.



Head over to see more or join in the challenge at Word Press – From Above.

Stay tuned… there is always more πŸ™‚

  1. Short, eh? You don’t sound short! πŸ™‚ Seriously – I love that first shot of Shanghai from above.

    • Yes I have been cursed with short genes πŸ˜‰
      Thanks for the comment… it was a fantastic view of Shanghai from above. The glass floor tiles in the tower are fun… plays tricks on your mind…
      Have you made the big move back home? Funny I was just thinking about you today and wondering how you made out.

  2. great shot of Shanghai. Is that pollution?

    • Probably was pollution and fog mix. We are on the river and close to the sea, so the pollution gets trapped in the humid air and makes most days a little grey. This was 2011 and the bad air/pollution days weren’t as bad as they have been this year.

    I’m always looking up too…family genetics! Interesting perspective in your photos…especially of your toes!

  8. Both very cool, in different ways. Nice job, CTB. πŸ™‚

  9. Love them both! Near and far!

  10. Terrific picture of Shanghai, the “wild west” city of China – my favourite Chinese city. Did you try the maglev train?

    • Thanks πŸ™‚ Shanghai is an amazing city with so much development. We have been lucky enough to have lived here for 3 years due to work opprotunities. I wish we could travel more though. So much to see and do here.
      What did you see in China?

      • The usual tourist places but most memorably a water village near Shanghai called Zhouzhuang (sp?), a northern city called Chengde in Hebei Province and a remote location of the Great Wall (the name of which escapes me at the moment). And beautiful gardens in Suzhou all in the flattening heat of August. I lost weight from sweat!

        • I know the water town we went in May or June 2011 and just went to the wall a few weeks ago. (You can see it on my Hell of a Hike posts). I know the heat you are talking about. When we left Canada it was 40c with humidity. Here it reached 53c (+++) with humidity. I have never been so hot in my life! We came a week early to tour around before I started work and after 1 day of the heat we said lets wait for cooler weather. It was crippling.
          Thanks again for the visit. Hope to see you again πŸ™‚
