"Shanghai: The Other Side, Part 3". Now that I've put the shadow ban behind me (for good, hopefully!), let's continue my Shanghai backstreets series. Strolling through the sidestreets, I stopped at this apparently abandoned table. Though dilapidated and run down, I sense that this table is far from being disused. Does it serve as a living room for someone homeless? Is it a resting place for the elderly as they go about their daily business? Is this the "break room" for an adjoining business? There are clues, but one can only guess! . . . . . #Shanghai #China #urbanphotography #travelphotography #humblelife #sidestreets #backstreets #streetscene #streetshot #wholiveshere #instapassport #vsco #vscocam #travelgram #wanderlust #igtravel #traveldiaries #explore_earth_ #olympuscamera #getolympus #olympusomd #microfourthirds #m43movement #CarlLumPhotography #FindBeautyAnywhere
"Blazing Fountain" (repost) Greetings from the artist formerly known as "carllum_photography". 😉 I have returned to Instagram with renewed vigour and a new branding that emphasizes my love of photography: to capture all types of beautiful images from everywhere. I am also hoping that this return brings to an end to the insidious Instagram "shadow ban" that hit me unexpectedly last week. I am celebrating my re-emergence by reposting my very first Instagram photo: my favourite fountain in downtown Vancouver glowing brilliantly with the backlit sun. (If the ban has not yet been lifted, at least my followers can see this.) Add a comment if you've been affected by this cryptic ban too. You'll know it if your engagement abruptly drops to a fraction of what it was. . . . . #fountains #waterfountain #backlit #backlitphoto #backlighting #backlightphotography #backlightingphotography #blazing #blazingsun #hdr #hdrlover #explore_earth_ #sunporn #skyporn #cloudscape #cloudlovers #skyscape #skylover #Vancouver #vancity #vancitybuzz #yvr #604 #604now #granvillesquare #westcoastisthebestcoast #RX100 #sonyrx100 #CarlLumPhotography #FindBeautyAnywhere

"Shanghai: The Other Side, Part 2". The side streets of Shanghai, just adjacent to downtown, where the "regular" people live. A quick Google check reveals startling (but unsurprising) articles like "The gap between China's rich and poor is growing". Statistics like "the richest 10% earn about 10x the income of the poorest" (which is actually not that bad I think). Another: "The top quintile of earners now pulls in nearly half of total income while the poorest quintile of earners account for fewer than 5%." And this despite great attempts by the Chinese government to redistribute wealth and address poverty. . . . . #Shanghai #China #urbanphotography #travelphotography #humblelife #sidestreets #backstreets #instapassport #vsco #vscocam #travelgram #wanderlust #igtravel #traveldiaries #explore_earth_ #olympuscamera #getolympus #olympusomd #microfourthirds #m43movement #CarlLumPhotography #FindBeautyAnywhere
"Ancient, but Thriving!". It is hard to believe that the ancient city of Zhujiajiao was established 1700 years ago, with earlier remnants going back 5000 years! And here I thought the 1500 year old Hagia Sophia was impressive. This photo shows one of the hallmarks of this ancient wonder: this is one of 36 stone bridges scattered throughout the water-filled town, each of a different design. . . . #Zhujiajiao #Shanghai #VeniceofAsia #canals #bridges #asiapics #jewelofasia #ancientcity #backintime #instapassport #vsco #vscocamera #travelgram #wanderlust #igtravel #traveldiaries #worldwonders #beautifulworld #newcity #globetrotter #worldtraveler #traveltheworld #seetheworld #travelawesome #olympuscamera #getolympus #olympusomd #microfourthirds #CarlLumPhotography #FindBeautyAnywhere
"Venice of China". The ancient city of Zhujiajiao in China was a treat for the senses! It was like being transported back in time, to ancient China. We rented a boat and took a tour down the canals, in the city otherwise known as the "Venice of China". The cool thing was, these buildings aren't just sitting there as tourist attractions--people actually live in them! (Well, many of them I think.) I'll spend the next few posts showing off some of my favourite scenes from our day trip there. . . . . #Zhujiajiao #Shanghai #VeniceofAsia #canals #asiapics #jewelofasia #ancientcity #backintime #potd #instapassport #vsco #vscocam #travelgram #wanderlust #igtravel #traveldiaries #worldwonders #beautifulworld #newcity #globetrotter #worldtraveler #traveltheworld #seetheworld #travelawesome #olympuscamera #getolympus #olympusomd #microfourthirds #CarlLumPhotography #FindBeautyAnywhere
"A bit past her prime, but this Lily is still beautiful nonetheless!" I wasn't even planning to photograph flowers on this day, but I spied this little lily bathed in a beautiful glow from a shaft of sunlight just off to the side. I thought it was a beautiful sight, even though she was a bit past her peak. So I rushed in to grab my camera. I hope you enjoy this image too. Happy Sunday! 😀 . . . . #flowerstalking #favv_flowers #floral_secret #floral_shots #funda_flowers #fm_flowers_ #ptk_flowers #bestflowerspics #ig_flowers #igscflowers #rainbow_petals #blooming_petals #ip_blossoms #phx_flowers #pocket_flowers #great_captures_flowers #international_flowers_ #traveling_garden #total_flowers #lily #lilies #lilylovers #olympuscamera #omd #getolympus #olympusomd #olympusem5 #m43movement #CarlLumPhotography #FindBeautyAnywhere
"Picture Perfect". My beautiful home town Vancouver, BC, Canada, from 500 feet up. We had brunch at our iconic revolving restaurant "Top of Vancouver" (delicious) and I had a field day snapping photos (naturally). It was my wife's job to remind me that our main purpose there was actually eating... Still, how can you sit still with this beautiful panoramic view scrolling by you? This is a bird's eye view of one of my favourite photo targets, the convention centre, with a cruise ship docked. . . . . . #beautifulbc #explorebc #604 #vancouverisawesome #veryvancouver #vancity #vancouver #vancitybuzz #yvr #topofvancouver #revolvingrestaurant #topofvancouverrevolvingrestaurant #viewfromhigh #beinspired #lovethiscity #hdr #hdrphotography #lookdown #nofilter #olympuscamera #omd #getolympus #olympusomd #olympusem5 #microfourthirds #m43movement #CarlLumPhotography #FindBeautyAnywhere
