A few weeks ago was the the CYCLE party at Factory Five, organized by the good homie Elliott Zelinskas of Studio 191. If you’ve been keeping up with my few-and-far-between posts as of late, you’re familiar with the monthly photo and art shows that have been happening.
The party was awesome as always; good people, good drinks and lots of good bikes.
The next photo theme is “People” – submit your photo by Sunday May 10th to be featured. If you’re in Shanghai, be sure to keep up with the monthly photos by following the Studio 191 webpage.
Continue on below to see some more photos from that EZ shot from the show!
I know I’ve been slacking a bit on keeping the pages here fresh, but please believe I’ve been keeping busy. Despite not being able to dip out for a long road ride or hit the local trails on my hardtail like I used to back in VT, I still manage to ride and skate almost daily. Riding a bike in Shanghai is akin to mountain biking, except you gotta pretend the scooters and pedestrians are trees…moving ones at that. It’s definitely fun, but I can’t begin to explain how much I miss dirt, real trees and hills. Also, it’d be nice to take a deep breath and not feel like I’m shedding years off my life.
Aside from pretending I’m mountain biking, I’ve been skating a ton; that’s one thing this city is incredible for. The architecture here is begging you to skate it. I’ve also been shooting photos a bunch and displaying them at the homie Elliott’s monthly Studio 191 shows all across Shanghai. Here’s one of my latest shots, zoning in on one of the city’s countless dingy massage parlors. I couldn’t even find the entrance, but this sign definitely got my attention.
