Century Park Flowers, Shanghai

Nice collection of miniature sunflowers (actually have no idea what they are called) with apartments in the background.

Here are a couple of quick shots of flowers during a recent walk and bike ride around Century Park in Shanghai.  I’ve always avoided the park on the weekends but during the week the park is very empty.  The pigeon house is unique and worth checking out.  You know you are in the right area when you begin to hear this massive warbling.  This area proves a third use for umbrellas in China: rain, sun, and now bird bombs. The 10 RMB entry fee is kinda ridiculous and bike rentals are way overpriced but the overall atmosphere of the place makes is good for portrait photos and picnics.  Soon you will forget all about the entry fee.

Another nice little collection of flowers in Century Park.  Good location for portrait shots.

You get the idea now, flowers with buildings in the background.  There are a few nice heavily wooded places where you can escape the buildings.  Every time I have been here there are always at least a couple of fashion shoots in the park.
