Thank you all for your kind comments !

Robert - thank you for your very encouraging remarks ! I spotted her just as she used up the last of her bubble liquid and watched her expression change from a child's wonder (I was too late to capture her gaze at the bubbles) to sadness at the end of her day as her father drove them away). For some of the shots in this series I smiled at the parents and showed them the photos of their children - they were universally happy and proud at this foreigner taking shots of their precious ones.

Shoturtle - Shanghai is much better than Beijing in regards to dust (Beijing is located in a bowl-like depression and gets smothered by dust from the Gobi desert every Summer). The copious amounts of dust here are to do with the incredible amount of construction going on in the city for the last 15 years - at one time it was estimated 50% of all the world's high rise cranes in current operation were located here (trufax). Shanghai built more high-rises than the whole of Manhattan in the 10 years between 1995 & 2005 and still hasn't slowed the pace yet (my company is engaged in real estate so collating statistics is part of my work). Staggering. And very unhealthy.

Yup, my cousin was just on there earlier in the month. He did say the amount of building in Shanghai was crazy. But that there was yellowish smog over the city. I had to comment that all his shot seem to be gray and no sunshine. But he commented that beijing was way more dusty. Which was the same when I was there last year. Smog is an issue over the industrialize area's of China.

Actually there is not so much industrial pollution in the city proper per se because of an edict from Jiang Ze Ming (later President) & then enforced by Zhu Rong Ji (later Premier) & their successors, when they were mayors of Shanghai (late eighties / early nineties), which forced all factories to relocate outside of the city limits within 10 years - so now there is no industry whatsoever downtown, all relocated to industrial zones. Downtown is all commercial / retail / residential.

We get plenty of sunshine (with temps regularly between 35 & 42C in Summer) however downtown the traffic is so congested that usually that is what creates the pollution. Cityscape shots are not great in Summer though, or when temperatures are high, because of the very high humidity diminishing visibility.

Thanks for the info about the zoning. It is good that they are enforcing better industrial zoning for the good of the people.
