Shanghai Lujiazui - Running in Circles (China)

To me, this was taken in an atmosphere typical for Shanghai: busy, hectic, crowded, a little rainy (actually a refreshing, misty kind of rain), traffic noises... then you raise your gaze and are surrounded by gorgeous monuments, shimmering skyscrapers on every side, looking down at you through the fog.

This is the view towards East, the Oriental Pearl Tower and Huangpu River were in my back when I shot this.

 

Hope I´m not the only one who can appreciate those small raindrops on the lens.
