Sep 14, 2016 – [Wednesday] Travel Favs: Shanghai

Shanghai, China, taken on August 27, 2010

Shanghai’s skyline as viewed from the Bund is perhaps the lovelist city skyline I’ve ever seen. When I took this photo six years ago, I was using a very basic point-and-shoot and ended up with a slanted, grainy image – luckily Lightroom was able to rescue it moderately. I will be going to Shanghai again at the end of the year and hope to recapture this beautiful skyline!

May 27, 2016 – [Friday] Patterns: Seed Cathedral

Shanghai, China, taken on August 25, 2010

The UK pavilion at Expo 2010 in Shanghai was known as the Seed Cathedral as it was composed of some 60000 rods housing 250000 plant seeds within. The wait to enter the pavilion was 40 minutes, and was it worth the wait? I had doubts – you decide!
