    After posting the pictures of Stockholm its only logical for me to post some of the photos I took when I was visiting Shanghai a few years ago. That city is amazing and full of contrasts and diversity. You can find everything from modern western style buildings and merchandise to old traditional Chinese stuff and not to mention the food :D The bad part is the very polluted air as you can probably see in some of my pictures the smog is a huge problem there and of course all the dust coming from all the construction sites. Well I'll just let you guys judge.

    44. You can probably buy anything on the streets... but don't ask me what this pervert is trying to sell.

    If any of you hasn't seen my pictures of Stockholm Sweden just check out this thread:

    I am planning on visiting more fascinating cities around the world in the future. The cities on my current want-to-visit list are probably Calgary, Vancouver and maybe in the distant future New York.

    A fascinating glimpse into daily life there...everything from the architecture to the crowds to the shopping areas and back alleys (with fish drying overhead, as well as laundry!)

    (But it's true, 64 pics in one thread is way too many.)

    your pics look supersharp - hows that? - mine generally look a bit flat compared

    hehe I have deleted some pictures after all the complaints so now there's "only" 49 of them.
    I was both fascinated and shocked by the way people live there and the difference between the poor and the rich and the modern and the old and traditional.
    :D It would be hard to find any streets or alleys where there aren't any people around since it's the biggest city in China, at least that's what I've been told not to mention the country itself is the most populated nation on our planet.

    I am using an old HP Photosmart 945. I guess its pretty alright taking pictures where lighting condition is good...

    haha :lol: thanks for putting a warning in the title. I never thought that there are still people using 56k connection nowadays. Well I have to agree that I shouldn't have put all the pictures in one single thread. :blushing:

    I know I wouldn't want to live there because of the polluted air and it seems quite hectic and almost chaotic there probably because of the huge population but it is a cool city to visit though just like Stockholm :wink:
