hkskyline's 2009 SHANGHAI Photo Collection #5

A modern dish inside a traditional building.



Shanghai has a big collection of Art Deco buildings. They looked quite good against the morning sun. I was lucky enough to have many days of blue skies, and not too smoggy conditions.


















Environmental drying to the extreme. Each space needs to be used the fullest.









Is redevelopment the only solution?



Looks like more towers will be built before people turn their eyes to street level again.



Tianzifang, the new arts and cultural district.



Pudong's streets are not that busy at all, since they're a bit more spacious than Puxi.



I took a similar photo from Tianzifang in 2006. Time flies.









Although maglev is my favourite way to get to the airport, it certainly doesn't get me very far. From Pudong, it's still many subway stations into Puxi.





There's still some construction works here and there around the key landmarks as beautification and infrastructure developments continue.



The new Terminal 2 is a big improvement to the pointy needles of Terminal 1.
