Construction Sunset

This is a common scene in the area surrounding a new high tech industrial park being build next to our factory in Shenzhen.  The land value has sky-rocketed because of the adjacency to the new electronics factory buildings, so the owners of 5 story apartment buildings are tearing them down and building 8 – 9 story buildings (with a higher density inside).  Inflation is eating China alive right now and this isn’t helping.  Smaller apartments for higher rent.

I just happened to catch this shot walking back from a studio photo shoot. I didn’t have time to switch lenses, so I had to use the 35mm lens already on the camera and crop heavily. It reminds me of a contemporary interpretation of a Turner sunset painting.
