This week’s WordPress photo challenge is movement. Trying to capture any sort of movement on film has always proved difficult for me. Usually the photos I attempt to take during movement end up so bad that I delete them. However, these three photos during my recent trip to China captured the true essence of movement in the amazingly overpopulated city of Beijing. The first is taken inside a moving taxi cab as we entered “ghost street” and the second two […]
Greetings from Shanghai…wish you were here! Photo taken on balmy, misty night on the Bund in Shanghai, China. November 2011. I had to have fun playing around with this photo. The Bund is perhaps the most beautiful skyline I’ve ever seen! If only I could take a good picture, though. It started to rain during this shot but I like it anyways for the blurriness which is rather how you feel when you stand there taking it all in. So […]
Greetings from China..wish you were here! Photo taken in Shanghai facing Pudong in November 2011. I just finished my post on thirdeyemom on Pudong.

I saw everything from produce to presents and loved capturing the shops on wheels.
Greetings from Shanghai…wish you were here! View taken out of 17th floor of hotel room on the Bund in Shanghai. I walked into my hotel room, opened the shades and this is what I saw.

Greetings from Shanghai…wish you were here! Photo taken in the Bund district of Shanghai in early November. It was a hot, humid, misty night in Shanghai but that didn’t stop the walkers along the Bund. Despite the light raindrops, people were out in herds gazing at the gorgeous skyline of Pudong across the river in Shanghai. The lights were so beautiful I took at least a hundred pictures.
