In the picture

The Chinese metropolis of Shanghai is hooked on technology in general, and selfies in particular.

Everywhere you go, people talk, play, conduct business and buy things on their phones.

In tourist areas like The Bund, Shanghai locals, and travellers mainly from elsewhere in China, take self-portrait after self-portrait in the streets.

They stand on pavements and in roadways waiting for the perfect shot.

Selfie sticks are common, and their sale is a major source of commerce in Shanghai’s bustling street markets.
