Another shot taken at the World Expo here in Shanghai. To give you an idea of the size of this event I've cut this from The Times :

The first World’s Fair housed in Crystal Palace covered an area of about 20 football pitches. Its successor show that opens in Shanghai tomorrow is the size of two Monacos. The China Pavilion alone is the equivalent of 35 football fields.

At Shanghai Expo 2010, size matters.

The numbers are jawdropping. China has spent more than $58 billion (£38 billion) compared with $42 billion for the Beijing Olympics in 2008. Shanghai’s subway system has doubled in size in just a year.

A third airport terminal opened just weeks ago. Some $700 million went to remodel the famed riverfront Bund where Shanghainese promenade their pooches and tourists gaze at 19th-century art deco mansions on one bank and 21st-century futuristic skyscrapers on the other.

Barely a corner of Shanghai has been left untouched by preparations for what China wants to be the greatest show on Earth. Even the undersides of raised highways have been given a lick of paint.

Volunteers helping inside the expo: 72,000
Volunteers placed around the city: 100,000

Great shot, Kev!
Reminds me of a shot I saw once on the cover of a magazine, I think it was "Life Magazine"

*hopes his agent is doing his job*

Thanks GW. This was part of a series of shots I took looking for reflections (I'll post the thread later) but this was one of my favourites.

A fine example of being in the right place, at the right time, and having the eye to notice a great photo, and the talent to capture it!

Nice one, FF! What kind of ground covering is he kneeling on, giving such reflexions?

The reflections make it a powerful image.
