When night falls over Shanghai the hustle and bustle on the streets disappears and deep down in old Shanghai the shadows fall over the lanes and houses. Many times I have driven past at night and wondered about what it´s like wondering around the area in Laoximen in the evening. A few weeks ago, during one of the last warm days, me and my photographer friend Michelle finally go the chance and ventured out for a Shanghai night photosafari.
Where there is darkness you can always find light. And it is amazing how much light there still is in the city even at night. As a matter of fact it never get´s really dark in Shanghai.I loved exploring the alleys and lanes which during the day I´m so familiar with. It felt like I was diving into a different world.
