Running through the Shanghai files, scrounging for portfolio material across a couple categories. Self portraits and bike-themed stuff mostly. I’m surprised to find myself longing on some distant level to return, to reconsider Shanghai instead of my fervent focus on Hong Kong for post collegiate work/life.

So much of my time abroad was spent exploring the city, camera in hand. Walking its uncountable neighborhoods, discovering all sorts of Chinese niches of everyday life. As a business student I was naturally observant of their way of doing monetary things.

I was struck by how precisely this image adhered to the structural minutiae of architectural photography. The lines are all straight, even the verticals don’t bend in or out. Given my recent freelance work in the field (see above “201” links), perhaps this foreshadowed it all.

Retail storefronts, facades of commerce.
