Shanghai in a blimp

Shanghai really was something, it was ancient, classic, and modern at the same time. A city that offers you the exotica of Gong Li’s films; of red lipstick, and wavy coiffure. At the same time also rapid consumerism. I did not take many photographs as I enjoyed my time so much, that I even forgot to set my camera right, so pardon the grainy images. But here are some of the blimps of Shanghai that some people consider cutting edge, while others might consider kitschy.
The troop just arrived in Shanghai in the middle of the night. Exhausted, but excited
Hedonist tourists not wanting to miss a chance to pose even inside the subway.
The Pearl Tower. A step forward in architecture or gaudy fishballs on a stick? You decide.
Enter the surreal world or Bund Tunnel…
…where creepy blown-up dolls await you.
Flocking the Yu Garden.
Cobblestone pavement of the Water Village.

Bum Cafe. Nuff said.
Mile long kites in The Bund.
