French Concession

Shanghai Time-lapse by Dennis Bernhard

Shanghai is an amazing city. It’s full of lights, sounds and movement. I thought it would be perfect as a time-lapse subject.

This time-lapse was shot over two days during my trip to Shanghai. Unfortunately my third day of shooting was rained out. Nevertheless I had a great time running around this incredible city trying to capture a fraction of all there is to see.


The French Concession by Dennis Bernhard


Shanghai has a very interesting history of semi-colonization. As part of that there is an area called the French Concession. As the name sounds, it is an area of Shanghai that was run by the french starting in the late 1800s.

This was my second favorite part of Shanghai. It’s has a completely different look to it. The tree lined streets really make you feel like you are walking through Paris.
