Day One Hundred Sixteen, July 26, 2011

soaring steel

Shanghai, a city of soaring steel, a Gotham of Asia, a place that races to stamp it’s place in the modern world as a mighty metropolis and uses every resource it has to fulfill its visions of greatness. Every day of the week, of moment of the day and night, workers toil to add more and more height to the skyline of the city. These magnificent architectural creations are a wonder to behold, and they look different depending where you stand. Today, I was standing in between the twin towers of the IFC tower and the HSBC bank making the Jin Mao builiding and SWFC (nicknamed the bottle opener) look shorter in the distance.

Yes, I do miss the wild flowers living in Shanghai…
