Weekly Photo Challenge: Urban

This is my first time in joining the weekly photo challenge by wordpress team with the title- “Urban”. Though I usually take nature and outdoor photography, I managed to find some of the urban images from my archive and collection which I’ve taken from the past few years.  Most of these images were taken here in Shanghai City, China. A great place to explore around the streets corner and many building with unique style or design from old to new. Hope you enjoy this beautiful city of Shanghai through these photos. Cheers!

  1. Paul! Thanks for stopping by; I just looked at your images, and they’re stunning! Wow, there are some with the barren trees reflected in the mirror–like water that are breathtaking! Si, sign me up – I look forward to reading more! Lisa/Z

    1. Thanks Jeff, that shot was actually taken along the construction site as I passed by during one evening before getting home. Saw the color of the sky and so quickly I took up my cam and give it a shot.

  2. Welcome first timer to the challenge. It is a lot of fun to view fellow bloggers responses to the weekly theme. I enjoyed looking at your urban shots and look forward to following your future photo posts.

    1. Thank you Ruth. I’ve just noticed the blog “weekly photo challenge” weeks ago. Saw many interesting and creative photos taken base on the weekly theme, and so would like to give it a try and join in. Looking forward to it! Cheers…

    1. Thank you, this particular photo was taken in color during one cloudy evening. The day does not look promising for an outdoor shoot. Anyway I went out and manage to take this shot which I later converted into black and white, looks better with that.
