NEW YORK NEW YORK – I took a long walk today on the Hudson River and through Central Park past the Museum of Natural History. I managed to make contact with my mojo from a photo standpoint, after a bit of a dry spell yesterday.

Day 2119 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

On this day five years ago (day 293): Porto Seguro Brazil. There’s nothing that I’m really happy with during the past five August 4s. Summer doldrums?

SHANGHAI – We have mostly finished our meetings so we spent part of the day as tourists. We went to the Shanghai Museem – Maria and I had been here in April. The collection is good but a little disappointing given Shanghai’s stature. In April we photographed the stairwell – it was the second photograph in my post for April 19. Here’s a link – scroll down to the second photo. stairway in Shanghai Museum. I shot the stairway again, this time a close up of the dragon-motifed banister.

I got bored with the Museum so I took a walk in the neighboring People’s Square. There were young couples with a single child everywhere, a result of China’s one child policy. The Chinese say that single children have six parents (including four grandparents) so they are seriously doted-upon. See the image below.

Finally the Shanghai municipal government’s building is located on the People’s Square. it was finished in the 1990s. It is clearly meant to be imposing but only succeeds at being tedious – typical of civic architecture everywhere in the world.

All images taken with my Panasonic GH2 and 1 14-140mm zoom lens.
