National Day

Flags and badminton

A bit of a belated post considering Chinese national day is on 1 October, but really wanted to put in these photos from the holiday in Shanghai. The national day is accompanied by a week-long national holiday … that’s why everything feels so relaxed in these photos.

Flags in my neighbourhood

Cityscape old and new buildings

Another Shanghai skyline.. this time a composition of old and new buildings in the Jing’an area of the city.

I love the trees and the small playing field. The streets actually feel a little bit green at ground level, making it a great neighbourhood to wander around.

Building tall

A few weekends ago we had a windy day and a bit of blue sky. So, I decided to go to Lujiazui to see the construction of the new Shanghai Center.

Can’t find much information about the project online, apart from the fact that it will be taller than the ‘bottle opener’ (the building seen in the background of both photos)… will post an update if I find a good link.
