Liang Snow Pengyou


Took this picture during the mid-January snow in 2011.  Snow is pretty rare in Shanghai and people of all ages were excited to see it.  I watched the security guards at a neighboring office building build this little guy who is looking for a friend. – JW



The artist as seen with his work…

On my first pass through the temple courtyard, there was a line of school girls waiting to pose with the “snow ren.” After they left, he began work on his next installment- soon to be a snow rabbit. I love the pride of a job well done on his face.  – MH




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 community – beautiful, strange, surprising, alarming, amazing. So please, send me your photos, along with a short paragraph about what the image means to you.
