Dark City


One cold, rainy day last March I took my daughter to the Insect Zoo, near where we live in Lujiazui. Bizarrely, the exit to the building sort of dumps you unceremoniously out a small side door into an alley behind the Pearl Tower. Adding to the strange sense of having stepped straight out of one world and into another, it was one of those days where the clouds were thick and very low to the ground, and the afternoon had a moody, film noir-ish atmosphere. I looked up, and this is what I saw. Or didn’t see, depending on how one looks at it.

Welcome to the Shanghai My Eye! photoblog project. Each entry features 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 www.shanghaimamas.org 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: kelliehenry@shanghaimamas.org You are welcome to submit as many photos as you like, but separately please – only one photo and description per email.
