I’m slowly starting to come back to life and getting out to see a little more of the city while Stephen teaches.
I have discovered that there is a paucity of purple on the streets of Shanghai, which made today’s photography subject something of a challenge. Purple is hard to shoot when you can’t find any purple.
Some of you will recognise this, one of the most famous purple buildings in the world.
The other famous Chinese purple thing is a little more down to earth.
Purple flowers are easy to find here, but it’s not easy to make them an interesting picture.
Strangely, purple seems to be a Christmas colour here, and almost all the Christmas trees are decked out in purple balls.
It’s not uncommon to see dyed hair in Shanghai, but purple is a little unusual.
When I grow up, I want to paint my bike purple.
I’m pretty excited about tomorrow, when I’ll spend the day shooting Urban Nature. ♥
