Twenty-first century Shanghai’s skyline is the showpiece of the city. The modern Pudong District, with the distinctive needle and ball of the Oriental Pearl Tower and the soaring steel and concrete of the Jin Mao Tower, sits on a bend in the Huang Po RIver opposite the Bund, Shanghai‘s former business and financial center.

Finding a time and place without throngs of tourists was not easy. In the late hours of dusk, the Art Deco railing and lamp of the foreground pedestrian walkway contrast with the distant sky, water and towers, China’s future.
