I took this photo from my third story window overlooking the lane below. Our neighborhood committee (Jiu Wei Hui) was holding a pre-Expo neighborhood meeting imploring our neighbors to be good Shanghainese and not to wear our pajamas on the street.
Welcome to the new photoblog project, Shanghai My Eye. Each entry will feature one photo taken somewhere around town that speaks in some way to the experience of living in this mad and marvelous metropolis. The goal is to build up a collection of images of Shanghai as seen through the eye of the shanghaimamas community – beautiful, strange, surprising, alarming, amazing. So please, send me your photos, along with a short paragraph about what the image means to you.
Email contributions to: firstname.lastname@example.org You are welcome to submit as many photos as you like, but separately please – only one photo and description per email.
