I am based in Xujiahui, and I took many "landscape" photos of the area in the last few years. Here are some of the entries:
- Photos of Shanghai in May, 2008
- Sunset in Puxi
- Xujiahui – Night
- Night Scene of Xujiahui
- Xujiahui At Night – Part II
- Twin Tower Rise in Xujiahui
- Shanghai Scenery Around Xujiahui
In those pictures, you can see the surrounding areas of Xujiahui (other district, including Pudong) changed a lot, but the core area of Xujiahui didn’t change too much in the last few years during my blogging.
I’d like to post the "repeated" photos of the area again, just to record what the great area is today, and hopefully some day later, people are able to take it as a "walk back machine" to see of Shanghai "at the beginning of 21th centaury".

The area of old house is always multi-million dollars in value, but the life in the houses still remains miserable – too many people in the same house.
The Boxue Building at the gate of Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
These are the high-raised building built in 1980s or early 1990s. At that time, as the very few skyscrapers of the city, people must be very excited about the heights of the residential area – a sign of development of Shanghai, isn’t it? But now, it looks ugly.
