City God Temple (Chenghuangmiao), Zhujiajiao, China

Beyond the wall is the Yu Garden and towering in the distance is the Jin Mao Tower (left) and the Shanghai World Financial Center (right). Standing on the Zigzag Bridge, I could experience both history and modernity all at once.

Visitors line the shopping area around the City God Temple. You can get a sense of how crowded the streets can get from this.

Tourists walk over the Zigzag Bridge with ancient buildings in the background and newer buildings in the distance.

This is what shanghai looked like in 1928.

This is the City God Temple lit up at night. I can just imagine all the various lanterns being lit throughout during Chinese New Year. I assume that horse will be lit up and is there because it's Chinese New Year coming up and will be the year of the Horse. This place is far from a tourist trap, one of the best known places for xiao long bao is here: nan xiang man tou dian and there seems to be lots of locals here just doing their thing as well.

 

Some of you may have noticed that I've since switched to an Olympus OM-D E-M5 and shooting mostly with the 9-18mm. I really like this combo, such wide angles while still being able to have the camera in my coat pocket. The long end of the zoom also allows me to have ~35mm EFL. I am more of a 35mm than a 50mm shooter, so this lens is awesome to me. The 5 axis IBIS really does wonders for me as I don't have the steadiest of hands. The E-M5 will likely replace both the E-3 and E-PL2. I also have the MMF-3 adapter and several 4/3 lenses for when I need weather sealing. Olympus needs to put out a 17mm weather sealed pancake.

Carlos, a Matchpoint and Foto Competition friend of some years is visiting here in Shanghai for two days and these are some of the stuff we did today.

good thing comes in small packages

 

I visited the "City God Temple" or 城隍庙 today. The place is full of little shops that sell small interesting items. But one of main attraction is its "Xiaolongbao" or soup dumplings. The place has been opened for ages, and its been known world wide.

 

I think i have at least gain 10pounds in the last two weeks. There just so much yummy food here in shanghai. When i go back i serious in need of diet plane. XD
