Shanghai through the Window

It was my first trip to Shanghai.  I packed my best lenses, lighting gears, trigger cables… Dragged the heavy luggage across three different countries.  But guess what?  Forgot to pack my tripod.  Argh!

To add insult to injury, the view from my hotel was spectacular!  Perfect angle!  I ended up setting my camera on a chair, pressed against the windows.  Not perfect, but better than not shooting.  You can see flares from dirty spots on the windows.  The distortion on the side is annoying; the white spot on upper left is actually a full moon!

But it’s not all loss.  Next time, I know I need to get up to the jacuzzi terrace so I can shoot without window.  And remember to bring my tripod!
