I don't really love taking pictures at night. I mean whoop whoop–bright lights. There is none of the warmth of the afternoon or freshness of the morning...actually. I think I might just like taking pictures in the afternoon. That could be problematic.
But...if ever there was a place to take pictures at night, it's Shanghai. Goodness knows they use their fair share of neon. I was giving some visiting friends a little tour of the sparklier parts of the city last week so I took advantage of the fluorescent-laced skyline and got a few pics.
I don't know why, but I really like this picture. [East Nanjing Rd.]
More pics after the jump...
I call it the cricket! [People's Square]
There's something a little shifty about the word emporium. [East Nanjing Rd.]
My friend Marrrr on East Nanjing Rd. I love this one!
And what picture of bright lights in Shanghai would be complete without a panoramic of Pudong via the Bund? None. That's what.
