TRIP TO SHANGHAI, CHINA!!

By February 8, 2009 Travel

CHECK OUT THE SLIDE SHOW **HERE**

As some of you may know, I’ve recently returned hone from a trip to Shanghai, China with the staff of the Clark Howard radio show. My good friend Joel works for Clark and invited me along. I had such an incredible time. I think I could spend a full year or more in Shanghai and still not take it all in. Despite my camera breaking (shutter went out) while on the trip I was still able to get some stellar images. Thankfully, Joel had his Nikon D50 that I used for most of the trip, so I was still able to use my lenses. For you photographers out there…once again, its not about the gear. 🙂 Fact: for the first full year I was in business I shot with a Nikon D70. Now…onto the images…

This first image may be my favorite from the trip. We were in town during the Chinese New Year and witnessed some amazing stuff. This celebration was insane. Special thanks to my friend and colleague Hassel Weems for lending me his fish eye lens.

some scenery mostly from the old town area I believe…

taking the ferry across the river…

a few ‘people on the street’ shots…

my favorite dumpling place…it was seriously seriously good…and super cheap!

workers making the dumplings right out front…

a street food vendor..there were tons of these places…

Joel in one of the many metro stations. The Shanghai metro was very clean and way easy to use.

couple shots of Clark around town…

a view of the city from the 38th floor of our hotel…

Be sure to check out the slide show for lots more! Be on the look out for my next post with highlights from Ross and Amber’s wedding.

    Thanks for posting these. I was out in China last May and starting of June. I am sure you experienced it…but it is amazing what a smile can do in your interactions with the people of China. The guy on the bike with the 3 trees and the apartments in the background…AMAZING! Thanks again for sharing.
