Guess I'm posting my first photo of Shanghai today. What we see here are the decorations of the New Year, when the country was welcoming the Year of the Mouse. I really enjoyed to see the city during this feast. The colourful decorations were all over the city, a very unusual scenery for me and the streets were full of life and crowded with the nationals celebrating the big feast. What we see is the bridge (really crowded and almost impossible to cross, I can assure you)that leads to the famous Tea House, built by cotton dealers in the 18th century and transformed in a Tea House a century later.

I remember this place in Shanghai. Yuyuan Gardens. Nice warm vs cold colour contrasts, with good sharpness & contrast. Tfs!

Ciao dear Ana,
what a stupendous composition! It seems a kaleidoscope of colors and forms that it is good for the eyes and the mind because it gives us joy. Very beautiful the pagoda in the right of the photo that embellishes the image. A beautiful photo that I like, compliment!
Happy Sunday and next week :-)

Que grande festival de cores e de figurinhas tão "chinesamente naïves" . Vale bem pelas cores e pela multidão!
Um abraço, José.

It looks like kitsch but the color hues are exactly as they have to be. Nice composition, a pity that you cut the boy sculpture in the FG, but that can happen. It must have been great to stay during Chinese New Year in Shanghai. Personally we have spend Chinese New Year in Singapore, Kolkatta, Kathmandu, Bangkok, Penang, Hong Kong and now Alor Star.
