This is the monument at the end of the esplanade along the Bund. I showed the base of it in the last photo of the previous post. The blue cartoon figure is Haibo, the mascot of Shanghai Expo 2010
Part of our tour of Shanghai included a ‘cruise’ on the Huangpu River, down, then up, a short stretch opposite Pudong and along The Bund.
It was raining and windy out on the water. Rather than hide inside I took pictures. In this post are shots of the boats I saw. In future posts there will be more of the urban landscape around us.
A barge backed by the Pudong waterfront.
A coal-carrying barge alongside a second barge (partly distorted by a rain drop on my lens) alongside a huge cruise ship. Some of my fellow tourists saw the cruise ship leaving port that evening from their hotel window which overlooked the river.
A third barge, this time alongside a luxury yacht.
Our group of tourists on the cruise with a non-tour concerned mother fastening up her son’s jacket. I have experimented with Lightroom’s Radial filter to emphasize them!
