Far east setting moon mimics the pattern of a tea house roof.

Out of the frame a Shanghainese crowd celebrates the New Year of the Rat in the Yu Yuan Gardens. Hundreds of souls breezily cram the zig-zagging Crooked Bridge with shopping bags and yang rou chuan (lamb skewers).

See the whole set.

  1. Naoise,

    It’s Paulo from HP (http://www.apaulodesign.com/). Just looked through your blog a bit. Did you go to all these places? I love the pictures. I’m quite the traveler too, but I’ve used up so much of my vacation! How do you manage to have so much free time?
