One thing, that was the first typical character of the large town that is Shanghai, that revealed itself to me, when I started to walk the nights, shooting photos is the existence of the two kinds of populations of the town.

You have the day people and the night people.

They do seem to live in different worlds, those day and night people.

The first one looks like a scene form a movie.

First shot is nirvana!
Haha, too nice Tri ;-)
I hope, Nirvana doesn't smell as strong, as this street, while the sewer work was done though.

Here is a last one for the topic - fresh from last night - when Shanghai's taxi drivers begin their most busy hour of the day one driver is taking his time off.
