It was cold and wet the entire time I was there; even the phrase ‘raining cats and dogs’ seems to be an understatement since it felt more like raining elephants and whales.
I also found it a challenge to photograph in the rain given that my Leica M-E is not weather-sealed; although I sometimes hope that a magical pixie lives in my camera to justify the price I paid for it…
Getting into the monochromatic feel, here is my first Shanghai Story of rain.
My Shanghai Story: 雨 (Rain)
The Famous Cultural People Street
Near our hotel
Selling umbrellas for the rain
Wet and cold underground
The street looks even better in the rain
The Yu Yuan Gardens
The spectacular view of the car park from my hotel window
