Well.. the Chinese New year break was LONG.. a bit too long…
It’s funny that the first day when i got back to work, my boss said. “wow you seems more tired then the way you look before the holiday!” Well.. kinda..
Anyway, so i’ve went to Guangzhou (hence the above picture)
and also Hong Kong of course.
was able to do some street photo in HK, so was happy about that!
Well! For the Strobist out there. We all know how bulky the Beauty-dish is.
Especially for me who doesn’t even drive in Shanghai, China. Carrying the big Beauty-Dish is hard. (and people often thought I am a Satellite Technician)
So I’ve always tried to avoid using it.
The other day, I was walking around XingGuang (the Shanghai Camera Mall, Yes a WHOLE BUILDING selling photography related stuff!!)
I came across a little rather useless thing, which is a reflector that mount in front of the camera lens, to act as a “Ring-flash” that’s selling for 20 Chinese Yuan (about 3USD??)
But suddenly this strike me, I can make use of this thing. and solve the beauty Dish problem.
Let it snow~ Let it snow~
well… First snow this year in Shanghai is finally here…
and it is coming in hard!
first time I’ve ever seen it cover the ground/roof in shanghai.
(it’s normal in Toronto i know… but not in SH!)
anyway just wanna say it!
Holiday season is coming (even tho there are no x’mas holiday here in China.)
So.. I was suddenly in the mood to search for broken building this week (well.. I’ve been trying to search for a while..)
Somehow i have a thing for broken places, used to love the “Brick work” in Toronto (used to be a brick factory, got discarded for years)
First stop i went was M50. on Moganshan Lu (莫干山路）
there is a building I’ve seen a few time.. but never got the chance to find way to access it.
here’s the building. It is a 3 floored building but i i don’t think upstair can be access.. the floor already hollowed.. probably not safe to get up there.
First of all,
I have to say i was going to update this 2 weeks ago.
but my connection to WordPress been acting up like crazy!
So i can’t post anything properly until now.
Anyway, hope this won’t happen again.
Now the main story.
So 2 weeks ago, on July 24, 2010
We were having the first “Scott Kelby’s Annual World Wide photowalk” in Shanghai.
We went from Jingan Temple all the way to Huaihai Zhong Rd.. about 3.5km
we had 35 people in the group! all with camera in their hands, and walked for good 3-4 hrs!
It was great fun! and many many thanks to John for organizing this!
Anyway.. gonna share some more pic after the break, so click to see more!
this morning.. thousands of people lining up trying to gets in…
So, Continuing my Journey from part 1
We ended taking a short break in Huanlong Camera market, while waiting for my other friend to come.
once everyone’s here, we keep going and head down to subway line 4. and head to Baoshan station.
Once i got off the train.. i can feel the chaos-ness.
First, a first “electric bike” accident (with another bike) i’ve every seen in shanghai.
Nothing much to see, normal yelling at each other kinda thing.
