The Huangpu River divides the old and new sections of Shanghai along the Bund District. This is a view of the old French Concession area near the famous Nanjing Road. I got here pretty late in the evening and didn't know that Shanghai turns the lights off at 11pm. I was setting my camera up for a shot of the building on the right when all of the sudden you see the lights going out in a rolling power outage sort of way traveling from right to left. I thought there was some sort of apocalyptic event happening, but after a few moments when the world did not come to an end, so I figured I would just collect my belonging as head home to live to shoot another day.
