I recently received an email from a fellow photographer who goes by the name Patrick Schoenmakers.
In this email, Patrick explained how, while looking for places to shoot while in Shanghai, he’d come across My Favourite Lens.
This had led Patrick to visit the Shanghai 1933 Slaughterhouse I’d visited and mentioned in this post, but not published any pictures of.
But now, thanks to Patrick contacting me about being featuring his subsequent photographs in a guest post, we finally have some pictures of this unique Shanghai location, as well as some other from around the city.
An afternoon in Shanghai
“My name is Patrick Schoenmakers and I am from the Netherlands.
Although I have been photographing regularly for a few years now, I’ve just recently started to get into street photography. In that respect I am very lucky to travel quite a lot for my job to various big cities around the world.
A little bit over a year ago I was looking for a compact camera, that I always could have with me on my travels and I bought the Fujifilm X100T.
Although I had to get used to just having one focal length instead of a zoom, I quickly fell in love with this formidable camera. So much even that 6 months ago I decided to sell my Canon body and three lenses, so now this Fuji is my only camera.
Last week I was in Shanghai for a short stay and had some spare time to go out and spent an afternoon on the streets of this metropolis.
Although the weather wasn’t really cooperating, I had a good time being out there and left again with the pictures shown below.”
I have to say a big thank you to Patrick for submitting the shots and story from Shanghai.
They kinda make me want to go back to that Slaughterhouse and actually take some pictures worth publishing there myself this time. 🙂
All of these images first appeared in this blog post on Patrick’s own site. You can find more of his work on Flickr, or the gallery section of his site.
And if you enjoyed this afternoon in Shanghai and think others will too, why not share or pin it?
