Default Shanghai - Lvjiazui's 'Boardwalk'

I decided it was about time I took some more street shots - so these were shot on the Lvjiazui 'Boardwalk' in Shanghai on New Year's Day :

Visitors to Shanghai from the countryside. Actually their son was taking their photo - the smiles are their reaction to me !





Checking his shot.



One of the tourist set-scenes - they have a whole rack of clothes to choose from !



Rose selling girls press their luck.



Want a close up view, across the river, of The Bund ?



They were all set up for one of their friends to take their photo and all - but one - were highly amused when I lined up a shot from behind her !



Posing for her father - we compared shots afterwards.




More to come tomorrow !

Nice series, I like the photographer. Looks like it's not all that warm, everyone is bundled up.

Great street shots, Kev!
That's what I call taking good advantage of a photo op!

Very nice shots. Since I live in a very small town, I always enjoy street scenes from major cities.

Oh well... street photography. One day I'll be brave enough to do that. Especially in Germany people get nervous/suspicious/hostile when you take photographs even just of their dog or the like. It gets worse when you photograph the people or especially their kids.

Nice captures, I especially like the first and the last one.
