A walk in the dark

An Orgy of Escalators
Shanghai Times Square

Meyer-Optik Görlitz Lydith 30mm f/3.5

A colour image is impossible: lighting in the escalator atriums consist of a nasty mix of tungsten and fluorescent light. If I white balance for one, I get swathes of maroon/green for areas illuminated by the other.

Shanghai has a few elevated highways, all of which are massive infrastructure developments and enable motor vehicles to drive in the sky.

This is the pedestrian bridge from which the previous photo was taken. Due to the pedestrian bridge's longish span, it is prone to a bit of oscillation when heavy vehicles thunder overhead. Feels like a cruise ship.
