Over the last 4 years I have had the pleasure to visit Shanghai on business on a number of occasions. I love visiting Shanghai and will miss it now my focus is on other parts of the world.

I have noticed that the landscape changes very rapidly in this vast metropolis. Buildings are torn down and skyscrapers appear in their place in the blink of an eye so to speak. I have found my favourite parts of Shanghai are those nooks and crannies tucked away behind the biggest tourist locations.

One of these places is near to the famous Lujiabang Fabric Market (where all expats and tourists flock to get tailor made clothes). 2 minutes walk from the fabric market and you find yourself in an area that remains fiercely local and is full of traditional homes. Not so much any more. It seems these homes are being demolished to make way for yet more high rises.......

When I was in Shanghai in November 2013 I decided to document some of the changes that are taking place. The idea being I continue to document the evolution of the change during the next visits to Shanghai.

In the distance you can see the Shanghai World Financial Centre,

A very nice addition to the side challenge. Hard to find a place that's changing faster than China. We've been travel to Taiwan annually for years now and see it on a smaller scale. Kind of sad to see some of the older stuff rolled over.
