No, it’s not a scene from Blade Runner. This is the Yan’an Interchange in Shanghai, one of the wildest on the planet. During the weekend the city turns on these blueish Tron lights underneath the highway.
It wasn’t easy to get this shot. We had to pay off a security guard to let us on the roof of the building. I think that guy was making more money off of photographers wanting to get on the roof than from his salary.
Even though it’s only a highway junction, standing in front of it was as impressive as any other other modern marvel. My lungs didn’t appreciate the relentless hit of exhaust fumes though.
