Out of Town Photos

25 posts in this topic

Well I thought I would go on and make a thread for this regarding your out of town photos if you have any you would like to put up feel free to do so. But I thought I would go on and upload some of my pics of my trip to philly from last year.

I just had to share this building. I saw it while I was in Shanghai recently. There's some sort of optical illusion going on but i just can't get my head around it! /Users/brandon/Pictures/iPhoto Library/2005/06/15/DSC00386.JPG/Users/brandon/Pictures/iPhoto Library/2005/06/15/DSC00387.JPG

Hmm . . . guess I don't know how to post photos . . . yet

gntrphoo (how the hell do you pronounce that? :lol: ). Thanks for the Shanghai pictures. It's a huge city.

Did you ride the new airport monorail (or meglev)?

haha sorry for the confusing name . . . supposed to be a reference to the fact that I live in ginter park, and go to school at uva. I haven't had a chance to ride the maglev yet, but they sure are damn proud of it here (as they should be!) I'll probably test it out on my way back to the States. Btw, if anyone ever finds themselves in Shanghai, I recommend checking out the Shanghai Urban Development Museum - although it sugarcoats Shanghai's history (including no mention of the years 1949-1978; hmm what happpened then?) there are some outstanding exhibits about Shanghai's past 15 years of growth and future plans.

Soooo, ginterparkphoo, you're reading us way over there in Shanghai?!! :w00t:

Isn't the boulevard along the river in Shanghai called The Bund (or simmilar)?

You're a lucky young person to have the opportunity to travel in the Far East.

Yeah, the Bund is where you can find most of Shanghai's western architecture, back from when the western powers (mostly U.K., France, & U.S) controlled Shanghai. When they were built (early 1900s), the buildings were mostly western banks; now they're all Chinese banks (and each building flies at least one Chinese flag so we don't forget it), but the Chinese still call it waitan [why tahn] which roughly translates as "foreign shore."

Here's a picture of part of it.

The Bund (Waitan) is a very grand avenue.

That's a very unusual top on the skyscraper in the background - sort of floral., or like the top of an ear of corn.

Yeah, that place is called "The Bund Center." Google images has some cool pics, especially at night when the top is lit up.

Ahhhh. Home sweet home. :) Next to New York, I like Richmond best. :thumbsup:

Terrific pix, Tommy. You were less than 3 blocks from my apartment in some of the shots.

The light colors on the Empire State Building tower change for every holiday and/or special occasion.

I never tire of Manhattan.
