Sitting out to the west of the city centre but still absolutely in Shanghai, Qibao old town makes a lovely day away from the shiny skyscrapers of China’s biggest metropolis.
If you’re going to go there, try to pick a day with fewer people. So neither a weekend nor a national holiday. Try also to pick a sunny day. Then you can take advantage of the light and get better photographs.
Trust me. I shot parts of Qibao – on Fujifilm Industrial 100 film – on both bright and overcast days. Come see the difference good light makes to your photography here.
