My Shanghai - lukeit

Many businesses in China are open 24/7, small convenient stores, restaurants and other eateries, street vendors with improvised carts, moped and bicycles mechanics and even hair salons keep their lights on most of the day and night and (not) surprisingly they have always someone buying or calling at their premises.
Many of these shops are anonymous, to say the least, during day time, and none of them stands out when the sun is high, but when night comes it's like the spotlights of a stage that call for attention.

Neon lights and the inherent beauty and style of Chinese characters do the trick and the streets becomes scattered with colors and glitter which are a feast to the eyes (and to your camera of course!)
