Another view from the Shanghai Tower. Nanpu bridge is barely visible on the left but then you can see the coat-hanger shape of Lupu bridge and, in the distance, Xupu bridge.
Most obvious in this image is the area of the original old Shanghai in the foreground surrounded by the encroaching skyscrapers of the 21stC.
Almost 13 years ago, when I first visited Shanghai, the building on the left was the tallest building in the city.
Just over 8 years ago, when I moved to Shanghai to live, The building on the right was the tallest building in Shanghai and the building from which I took this photo was still just a hole in the ground.
