This photo was shot in Shanghai, China and features the Pudong area where the perpetually smoggy sky casts an otherworldly glow on the landscape. I feel the foggy atmosphere in this photo lends itself to a dreamlike vision of a city moving quickly toward its future. As I set up for this shot, a boat carrying an electronic billboard plodded through the water flashing various ads to any who happened to be looking. Having advertisements forced into my field of view not in a virtual world, but in the real world felt to me like the wave of the future.
