*SHANGHAI* - Slow Motion Explosion

It's been a long, long time since my last Shanghai thread. The photos have been slowly piling up, and I just kept putting off posting them. No more!

There are quite a few of them, so kudos to those that make it to the end.

Outstanding photos and high quality photography, giallo! Thanks for sharing all these spectacular shots. Each one is amazing.

Shanghai is an spectacular city, now even more with the new Shanghai Tower under construction. I remember when my father and me visited Shanghai twelve years ago and we went up to Jim Mao Tower. Then we got really impressed, and now I see it very small compared with Shanghai Tower. It´s incredible!

Thanks again for this fantastic thread.

Congrats and greetings from Madrid, Spain!

Wilford Brimley's going to want to you for a minute about this thread because, it's too sweet. lol

I love how in this view it would be mediocre and even drab in other places, but in Shanghai it's possible to see a little something more.

Love the pics, especially the ones of the talls messing with the clouds.

Absolutely amazing. Chinese cities just make American ones look so banal

Well, I made it all the way through... although I have to confess that rather than utilize the music you provided, I was listening to Japanese techno while looking. I hope it won't cause an incident.

Shanghai in the 2010s has a very similar vibe to that of New York in the 1920s. Very intriguing photoset.

This is a 21st Century scroll painting right here. You really should sell this. There's so much beauty in different spots I can't stop looking at it:

It was a commissioned photo, so it's already in the hands of a hotel chain. It's not my photo anymore.
