The Way I See It

Red Flags

The Bund, Upriver

Back from a hectic week in China and a week catching up to my Seattle life, I am starting to breathe again.

I made these images while in Shanghai last week. It was friend Mark’s first time there. On this evening, we stationed ourselves at a favorite watering hole to watch as the sun set and the lights of the city sprang to life.

Photog Notes
I made both of these images with the Tokina 11-16. The outing was first and foremost a social visit, so I took the ultra wide lens to commemorate the outing. Once photo album obligations were out of the way, I made these images as the red flags started to glow under the darkening sky. In processing, I applied nothing special, save for a bit of selective exposure adjustment to compensate for the uneven light and shadows caused by the surrounding buildings.

  1. Great photos! I love how the Chinese flags really stand out from the rest of the city.

    • Thanks, Pete! It looks like you’re having a great time in SE Asia apart from the heat). Keep up the great reports.
