AU being the symbol for gold, this building seems to carry a message.

This is looking across from The Bund in Shanghai, China. All I can say is, thank goodness for Photoshop and the various plugins available to drag this out of the original material. You know, as much as I love post processing, there are days when I wish I was a better photographer and didn't have to work so hard on these things!

"They're just some linemen for the city."

No cherry picker lift for these Shanghai utility workers. I wasn't sure if it was actually electrical wires, or if it might be telephone cables that they were working on, but their working conditions looked a bit precarious.

I grabbed this shot from a moving bus, so there was some motion blur as well as haze from the window. I applied some Topaz Simplify 4 custom settings to give it a semi-illustrative look.

Busniess as usual in Shanghai.

This is a PS photomerge of two shots taken from our bus as we made our way across Shanghai. I love the add-on air-conditioner units everywhere, and the laundry hung out of apartment windows to dry in the hazy, smog polluted air. Still, life goes on, doesn't it?

Everyone's in a hurry to go nowhere.

All large cities seem to have similar problems. The mobility of the population creates traffic jams, and the best one can do is to go with the flow. It's easier on the psyche if we just relax and observe rather than fuming and cursing the traffic. It won't get us there any faster. This is afternoon rush hour in Shanghai, China. Except for the text on signs, it could be just about anywhere.
