Shanghai, China is a fascinating city. On one end, it is glamourous, vibrant and chic, on the other it shows you how the real people of the city live. A lot of the houses have these bamboo poles jutting out of their homes to hang clothes after a wash. I don’t care what you say, I feel it adds a special kind of aesthetic. What are your thoughts on this picture?

Today’s travel photo is the famous junk boats amidst the amazing backdrop of Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong. This boat is called ‘Duk Ling’ it was a fishing boat for more than 25 years. It is considered to be the last authentic Hong Kong junk. It is now operated by the Hong Kong Tourism Board. The Duk Ling holds up to 36 people. We did not manage to get tickets for a ride on this beauty on Christmas day. My tip is to book ahead.
This picture of baby chicks feeding was taken at a ranch in Humani, Zimbabwe. The intentional blur creates a sense of confusion which was exactly the scenario when the chicks were feeding.
