  • One of my favorite pictures from my time in China this past fall. A fishmonger's worktable on one of the backstreets by my host university. Stands like this one line many working class backstreets in Shanghai. These stands sell goods such as noodles, exotic fruits and vegetables, live poultry, fish, and flowers right on the sidewalk.
