Oh yes I'm fine. I was just admiring the greatness of this picture. I don't get to see stuff like this a lot of times.

Hi there, I was just wondering if I could use this image in something I'm writing? I just posted the prologue and was looking for pictures, and I clicked the link, and this is where it led me. I would love if I could use this image. 

Thank you!

Beautiful. Can I ask what tools you used? I am trying to create a similar thing. Do you do commissions?

Interesting... reminds me a special on Voyager 1 & 2 and how they were launched around the 70's and how they're likely to last long after almost everything on earth crumbles to dust. They'll likely be gliding through space for a very very long time. Also, most structures on earth aren't made to last very long without maintenance.

I love this. I love seeing those Shanghai skyscrapers that I'm so familiar with, yet with the inclusion of something post-apocalyptic, but peaceful and natural.

Very nice. I'm a big fan of the overgrown, life-after-people look.

Ooh, I see the Pearl Tower in the distance! Was this from the east side of the Huangpu River?

I just imagined me looking down at this part of town when i was in the Shanghai world financial center and then thought about the city coated in green.  I loved it when i visited China.  Can't wait till i go to the burj khalifa.  Then im going to imagine the city coated in green like your other ruins.

This is the only way I could ever think of a city as beautiful.
