China, Shanghai

I came across this mural in Shanghai at a Shanghai Metro Station. Such murals seem commonplace in metro stations, often showing achievements of the city, district or the country, or to celebrate or commemorate an event.

This mural of a landscape scene draw in the classic Chinese shanshui style was lit at the top with a soft glow of a strip light. It was very enticing to get close to look at the details, but I was prevented from by the red barriers, and from the ceiling, a security camera observed everything.

I had found one image which truly reflects the current image of contemporary China.
