Look Up Look Down

Look Up, Look Down challenge hosted by Travel With Intent.

May 2009 - Shanghai China

Photos taken from our hotel room. I was astonished to see these informal settlements on the roofs of high-rise buildings below me. Families share a shack with small kitchen, living room and bedroom.

In some cases they live in a  sheet-metal shack as can be seen on the left below.

Everyone just goes about their daily business.


  1. Very strange, to our cultural experience.

  2. Hi Jackie, over here in my country we still have this type of informal settlement in certain parts of the city. Thank you for your visit and comment in my blog.

  3. If there is space in cities, people will usually fill it. Nice shots.

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

  4. Yes, I've seen this in other countries too. Great pics.
