The streets of Shanghai



October 10, 2014

I am Shanghai where I am staying with a local family in order to improve my Mandarin before I go and spend a month at the scroll mounting conservation studio in Nanjing Museum. The area I am living in is very communal to the point where everything happens out on the streets in full view of everybody.

The following photographs are of last Sunday where people were celebrating the three day National Holiday.
