Admiring Shanghai from the Bund

Shanghai looks huge and amazing no matter what side of the river you are visiting! I think I went back and forth 8 times to see it from one angle then the next as the sun was setting. There is this electric train that goes in a tube under the water that is surrounded with enough flashing neon to send the average Japanese kid into seizures. It's all fantastic and electric -- and both banks were covered every night with people admiring the view... Normally I don't like tourists in my shots, but this one was kind of about the viewers of the city viewing the city.
