    You don't need to ingest poison to know that it is toxic

    The pic of the link is not showing accurately on the place I walk past. It was a narrow and crowded alley. Inter-link / connecting to different small back alleys.
    I was around that area once, in 2005. After that, I never been around there. I saw on the news that that area was being relocated and the old houses torn down. The area still standing is the 三牌 and 四牌, where all the dirty roadside food stalls are. But those houses are hardly old shanghai. More like from the 70s or 80s. Even those food stalls are gone now, thanks to the over zealous 城管 cleaning up for World Expo 2010. If you are not aware, Huangpu district is the World Expo district. Almost every old shanghai-y thingies are all gone.

    That's why I am saying Shanghai is losing its old charms, all the older buildings are gone, replaced by the disgustingly new and angmoh Xintiandi-like areas.

    I have been. Actually, almost robbed in Jakarta once. And I was just visiting. Luckily I got away. I've lived in Shanghai for 5 years, and walked extensively everywhere and never had a problem ever.

    They all push their ISO high high. They do not believe in long exposures. LOL. Well, at least most of them do not.

    And, for some of them, they just like to dump money on the camera bodies and lenses sometimes. But they will get the cheapest tripods... I see a dude placing his D300 on a super small and flimsy WeiFeng tripod.
