Shanghai Test Video

Shanghai Test Video

Albion, New York, USA


This is a video that I shot to test out my new camera in the shopping district of Shanghai during the May-day festivities. Holidays in China are intense: the cities become packed with people beyond capacity and it is often extremely difficult to maneuver in the streets. Sometimes pedestrian traffic comes to a complete halt for full minutes due to the congestion. It is an extreme that I have not yet experienced anywhere else in the world- nor should I from a quick reference to population density studies. Simply put, China is full.

Again, I think that I took this video with the resolution on my camera set too low. If this is correct, I will make amends in subsequent posts.
