Mrs Wu and the heart of old Shanghai

by gordonmichaelsutton

Just to prove I can take photographs that are in focus, here’s a shot of a feisty resident of old Shanghai, Mrs Wu. She’d been reluctant to let me take her picture at first as we made our way through the lilong where she and her neighbours lived, tucked away behind the bustling Nanjing Road. Fortunately, Jonathan charmed her and won her confidence; his family are originally from the area so his accent put her at her ease. I’ve promised to visit her when I return.
