The great heroes of communism seem little more than background props in contemporary Shanghai.
This is a preview of sorts for the remaining articles I need to write about my last trip to China. I hope people will return to read the full “non-Wordless” versions.
Looks like the badminton players have quite impressive audience:)
Interesting cultural mix, that.
hahaha this is really a leisure place… cool catch!!! I am finally back.. hope you can visit mine too… I am sure you’ll get a wordless laugh at my entry… LOL! Happy WW!
I can’t say I know what I am looking at, but I love it anyway. I really love statues and anything historical. Lovely photo. Happy WW!
My WW is @ http://ordinaryandawesome.blogspot.com/2009/03/wordless-wednesday-i-faces.html
Fantastic shot. I really loved seeing this kind of juxtaposition all over Shanghai.
Hahaha ! that’s real funny !
The money you saw on my post are Euros !
I think I have to add it on my post !
Happy WW! Well done..
I invite your blog readers to see what happens when you combine fruit, a pocket knife and some imagination…
What a curious contrast. It makes for a great shot catsynth!
Two serious, imposing refs!
I’m intrigued and can’t wait to hear more about your journey.
Interesting choice of referees!
You’ve got the perfect title for your piece right there.
Isn’t badminton a little bourgeois for Marx and Engels?
Very cool 🙂
That is oddly surreal.
LOL. Are Marx and Engels any good at badminton? I know there were good at other things, anyway… 🙂
Ah…badminton. Isn’t a BIRDIE involved in that game? Heeheehee
So,do Marx & Engles keep score or are they the ‘net’ ? heehee
Hopefully nobody hit the birdie so hard that it lands on Marx and Engels. They may never get it back.
Looks quite amusing me to seeing them play badminton in front of them! 😛
Watching everything you do. Very nice photo!
That is a very cool contrast. I look forward to reading more!
Happy WW …I’m a little late this week.
i thought I recognise tt from somewhere and yes, china.
Hopefully nobody hit the birdie so hard that it lands on Marx and Engels.
I wonder how many Karl Marx statues and squares there are. It seems like every city in Europe, and now Asia has one. I guess that’s how you can tell you are in the U.S. NO Karl Marx statues.
