2012 was an exceptional year here in Shanghai. Normally as we know it here the sky in Shanghai is always grey. Due to dust from heavy industry and construction. But this year was a nice surprise. Blue skies throughout the whole summer. It was just not as hot as usual. Normally it easily becomes over 40 degrees centigrade here. This year the maximum was just 38.
I took the chance to spend some quality time around Jin Shan Beach. My place of choice for the weekends. That day I spent an hour to walk around to capture some real scenes about what summer and beach means here in Shanghai.
