Night Photography, Pigeons, & Scenery - Shanghai, China (Part 1)

In the month of December in 2013, I took a trip to China to visit relatives and to travel places and take photos. On this trip, I visited Jiangsu (江苏), Anhui (安徽), Hong Kong (香港), and Macau (澳门). I took many photos on this trip and I will be splitting them into many parts. I will do my best in these blog post to describe the photos, however due to the lack of map data for China (on Google) and my horrible Chinese, I may not be able to give you too much details on certain things. At the time of visit, the smog in China is very heavy. In many of the photos, you will see what looks to be fog or haze, but it is the smog (pollution) in China. Be warned, that the pollution in China is not at safe levels. I started coughing less than one week into the trip, and I did not recover until the beginning of March this year (2014). Many individuals in China had the same cough I got. If you haven't done so, you can view my vlogs here. I already posted all my vlogs (of the entire trip) on Youtube, but these photos will come out in parts.

12/2013,我去中国旅游。我去了江苏、安徽、香港、和澳门玩。我会把照片分成很多部分。我的中文没有那么好,我不能翻译所有的东西。 我去中国的时候有很大的雾霾。我咳嗽咳了好几个月。我这次旅游也拍了一些视频,你可以在这里看。

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. To view my best China photos from this trip, use this link. To view all of my photos from 12/24/2013 through 12/25/2013, use this link.

Today I begin my photos from Shanghai, China (上海, 中国). By the time my plane from Macau landed, it was fairly late, so with dinner, and settling down for the night, the first part of this post will be night time long exposures. I will have photos from The Bund (外滩), and the People Square Area.

我今天开始我在上海拍的照片。

First off, photos shot at night at The Bund (外滩). On the left is the Oriental Pearl TV Tower (东方明珠塔). The blurriness is caused by smog. A lot of pollution.

More long exposures from The Bund (外滩). I wanted to capture the laser lights beam through the smog...

A government building in that area. A 100% zoomed in view of the photo showed one of the guards was sleeping. Either that or that typical Asian stereotype. LOL

Now I go onto photographing some white doves in a park in that area.
