Photographer's Note

The sun sets around 19 o clock here in Shanghai, and as our apartment has a large window facing south, we are lucky enough to see the sunset every day. Even though it's been quite cold recently, we have sunshine most days, which compensates.
The shot here points southwest, and I included our curving window from the apartment to catch the reflections of the sunset.
The buildings in the pic are mostly residential buildings situated in the Hongkou and Zhabei districts. Both are mainly workers neighbourhoods with a high concentration of migrants (around 25% of Shanghai's inhabitants are migrant workers from other parts of China). This is therefore one of the cheaper places to live in Shanghai, as these neighbourhoods do not include the infrastructure and facilitites as, e.g. the upscale, Jing an, Huangpu, Luwan or Xuhui districts. Situated North of the Suzhou river, Zhabei and Hongkou are closer to a bunch of Shanghai's best universities, though. A new South-North metroline is being built (in the foreground of the picture), which should make commuting a lot more convenient in the coming years.
All comments are welcome.
