Shanghai Greyness

Last week or so has been obscured in smog. While it takes some photo opportunities away, it actually brings some new ones to enjoy. 

Coming from Scotland, it took a while before my lungs got adjusted to Shanghai's air. After plenty of kleenex boxes, I bought a family package of strong mints, which finally helped. And as I try to see things in a better light, instead of lamenting about the pale sky, I am making the most of it. This is a collection of photos I took over that time.

There are many buildings in the same faded palette as the smoggy sky has. Their hard edges make for a neat analogous scene, yet with plenty of contrast.

Another subject that is rather appealing in these conditions is the concrete infrastructure and industrial developments. Shanghai has tons of amazing ones:

moving forward. as always.
