China Shanghai Market Barbecue

9 September 2012

Its raining but thats OK

After the storm it got amazingly clear. Which meant on the horizon of Xizang South Road I could see buildings I didnt know were there. This is as good enough reason as any to walk and see what they are.
A storm was always looming but held off for the perfect amount of time. Enough time for me to look at crap in E-mart, Amazingly cheap electronic stuff in Lolo or Lulu or whatever its called, explore the antiques street which was interesting and find my dinner.
It was then time to head back to my hotel for the grand prix from Monza, the rain re arrived with perfect timing.

Insert something funny here? OK, I enjoyed the chocolate popcorn last night, so today I bought some microwave chocolate popcorn. I havent had it yet but I am excited. Saving it to eat during the race. I dont know if this is funny or not but I am interested to find out not only if Chinese microwave popcorn 'works' but also how the chocolate gets distributed over it. I predict I will have chocolate coated hands shortly.
The kind of crap that amuses me is always surprising.

***Bonus update***
For the photography nerds, I took these two photos out of my hotel window, hooray for opening windows.
Both are straight out of camera, using the Sony HDR function. The exposure time on this one is 20 seconds x 3, F11.

And for the second one, there was a bit more street lighting, hence the exposure needed for each of the 3 overlaid frames is 13 seconds.
I left these files large so you can appreciate the detail, they are 2048 pixels wide.
