What Else: I have always enjoyed getting lost in cities and letting your instincts take over. My first time in Shanghai I just started walking with only a camera in hand. I saw street food vendors, artist studios, hidden parks, a tight maze of alley shops and courtyards, a squatter village and a McLaren dealership, all in one day!
