about this limited edition photograph:
The Shanghai Tower – the second tallest building in the world, and the highest observation deck on the planet. Looking down from well over 600m high gives you a real sense of perspective, especially when you’re there to do it before any of the safety glass has been installed!
I remember when the (now) second tallest building in Shanghai was having its foundations dug out. That tower, the SWFC, is now dwarfed by this new giant and, while delays have meant the opening shifted from 2015 to 2016, the sheer scale and imposition of the third of “The Three Kings” really has to be seen with your own eyes to be appreciated.
As with all photography, things never quite run as smoothly as we’d like. My access to the tower was limited to only one night in the summer of 2015, when clouds were rolling in fast. Luckily, a tiny break in the weather appeared just in time before we had to leave – and long enough for me to not only photograph but also witness this amazing view before the public have access to what will soon be one of the world’s “must-see” buildings.
