1,3 and 4 look like some high priced waterfront condominiums?

bluenose,

It's a new living area. They started building it abot 20 years ago, if I remember correctly. There are also office and manufacturing buildings. There is a SonyEricson and a Hasselblad center

The IT sector is continously growing in the area. Of course rents and fees are high also for the apartments. 20 meters to the river - not bad

//T

There are not many hours with light this time of the year. On the other hand it's high quality light for photography as the sun never rises high from the horizon giving long shadows and depth. A couple of hours later the water can look like this. The river floats (runs?) from east to west

Interesting set. I like the one of the crows but especially #6 - though it would be better if it were only ice and you crop off the river embankment at the top. Then the ice and the reflection would be brilliant !

Ha ha - sorry I find that quite funny ! Living in Shanghai if it was 20 years old they would be pulling it down to put something new up there. 20 years ago Shanghai was unrecognisable from today.

I notice this major difference in cultural perception of the East & the West - what is considered 'new' and what is 'old' - most when I go home for visits (U.K.).
