Shanghai: Kicking, screaming and demanding your attention

It's been a while since I've posted a photo thread here. I could explain my 'woe is me' story about my computer breaking etc, but it really just came down to sheer laziness on my part.

I also want to thank Lucky24 for giving me all that storage space for the last two years or so. Unfortunately, somebody must have posted pictures that China did not like because I can't access www.inclearimage.com from any computer in this country any more. Shit.


Oh yeah, some of these pictures are from last fall. The SWFC was just a little pint-size at the time.


Shanghai sez, "Look at me!"



















































































































































Can I get a little Hangzhou break?










































You didn't scream loud enough























































































































































































Try to ignore her






Thanks for staying until the end

Only 3 more months, and then I'll be back in the incredible city of Shanghai!

These fantastic pictures only make me more excited to get back!

Well, if anything from you is worth such a long wait, it is this photothread. Excellent photography as usual, Giallo!

Hehe. I believe this is the first thread you post since, like, September 2006.
It was better than I could have ever imagined!

This one is arguably one of the best shots I've ever seen on here.


It may look even better if you crop it at the top, I don't know though.

And thanks for exposing my ass all over SSP!

Great work man.
