The Shanghai Museum displays artifacts of beauty from the rich history of the country, ceramics, glass, furniture, and colorful pieces like these two war canoes.



Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    I know these canoes very well… they are made by the inhabitants of a small island called Irala, near Taiwan. I sat in these canoes. :)
