Photo of the day: Last Day Here

0

This week’s photo takeover is “RIP Laoximen” — a collection of photos by Shanghai street photographer Qian Yang, capturing life in the rapidly-disappearing neighborhood.

I took this picture from the roof. The woman was cooking in her kitchen, and I loved the contrast between the old alley area and the modern Shanghai skyline in the background. One thing I want to mention is that, the day after I took this photo, the woman moved away. It seemed like a freeze-frame at the end of that story.
