We took a walk around Shanghai with a few friends exploring the area between Xintiandi and Yuyuan last week Sunday. We had met friends on a cool patio restaurant that overlooked the neighborhood. It was a mix of old neighborhoods, blown out blocks and the new developments going into them. The walk was constantly transitioning feeling eerie as sparse residents watched us wonder their decommissioning lanes only to turn a corner and be swarmed by groups of international tourists. There is nothing wrong with Yu Gardens but I think it's more interesting walking through the neighborhoods east and west, particularly before their prime location and years of skirting code causes them to disappear. .
All shot with the 50mm f1.8 Zeiss Ultron. Great little walk around lens and not bad for 50 years of life. .
