Necessary Preparations



Took these pictures in January 2010 of my neighbor’s fish hanging out to dry.  Every year in preparation for Chinese New Year, our neighbors hang out various meats to dry along with the daily laundry.





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.

Email contributions to: You are welcome to submit as many photos as you like, but separately please – only one photo and description per email.
