I had a suspicion that what looked like an exhibit of National Geogaphic photos in the Chinese-language dailies at the office pantry meant there was an actual, ongoing exhibit of National Geographic photos. Last Saturday, at a Sony showroom, I picked up a flyer:
So, after calling up the Shanghai Duolun Museum of Modern Art the morning of Sunday, asking for diretions, I stepped into its halls, though thats after a 3-subway-line trek, 2 long-walk transfers, and about 30 minutes of looking for the damn place.
I was hesitant on bringing my camera, since I didn’t know if these things were allowed in the venue. Surprise, surprise: there was approximately more than a dozen people holding their own kit-lens’d Canon 350D, taking pictures of, err, pictures. I didn’t take the idea in very well, since I primarily wanted to shoot what was going on in the exhibit itself. But oh well, I did take some snaps of some photos I fancied.

And folks, this was just the start of my eventful, albeit lonesome, Sunday. Another post to follow.
