The Monument to the People’s Heroes is a concrete structure in Shanghai, China. The structure is located at the confluence of the Suzhou Creek and the Huangpu River, within the grounds of the Huangpu Park.
The structure was built by the Shanghai municipal government in the 1990s to commemorate revolutionary martyrs, as well as those who have lost their lives fighting natural disasters.
The structure stands 24 metres (79 ft) tall, and is built in the stylised shape of three rifles leaning against each other. The Monument is surrounded by a paved space used by locals for morning exercises.
Some experimentation with the camera.
A beautiful view from the bund.
This guy caught my eye.
