SKYLINE #2: Tourist in Your Own Town

We have visitors from Canada and what better thing to show them than the skyline of Shanghai up close. Walking along The Bund there is spectacular views of the Pudong New Area with its skyscrapers and unique and fancy designs. Walking on the Puxi (Poo-she) side the older colonial style architecture contrasts and compliments the skyline.

Last time I showed you SKY with colours of sunrise and sunsets and views of Shanghai. This time it is a closer look at the skyline that makes up Shanghai.

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 😉
