Short description:
One of my favourite shots from my many trips to Shanghai. This is the detail of the roof of a building on the People's Square (the Shanghai Municipal Display Hall). I love the combination of lines and curves - as well as the optical illusion effects they cause. Black and white is the usual choice for these shots, but here the blue really adds to the overall feeling.
