Born Ready

by Mark Forman on December 2, 2015

When I first came to Taiwan almost 30 years ago I used to think the people were kind of crazy hanging out in parks and public spaces exercising and dancing together. Now I realize how truly wonderful that is. To not waste the public spaces that cost time and money to produce and to socialize and get exercise. I go to this park at least 5 mornings a week and fast walk. The fresh air from the trees and all the people here doing their routines are great. It really makes me want to exercise more:Win/Win! I even love the pop-up vendors selling their veggies and food items-but I'd love them more if they were on the perimeter and not on the edge of the track I walk on so I wouldn't be affected by their impromptu traffic jams. 😀 Oh well...

Social Media Dilution

by Mark Forman on September 7, 2015

The meaning of the title...blah, blah, blah. Yes because of social media sites I devote much less time to this site. That being said it's still mine to ignore abuse or adore as I please. I hope you still stop by and kick the tires from time to time. I've been listening to so much less music than I used to do back in the day. That being said, I'm viewing far more moving media(small screen in this case) than before. Also shooting and editing more photos and still playing my guitar whenever I think of it. The flow of information, the associated value the way it disrupts or corrupts a little different but still kind of the same. watched a cool David Byrne video of an old talking Heads song: Houses in Motion. Will link below. I remember Tina Weymouth, Byrne's former band mate from The Heads saying of him, David Bowie and Brian Eno-"Those 3 are always the smartest in the room and they love talking to each other. One day I can picture them as old men talking amongst themselves ignoring everyone else in the room." well he does have white hair now...  I met and spoke to him after a Talking Heads show in Tucson back in the late 70's-indeed a bright and interesting guy. Heard he has Asperger's-seems about right.Have been busy working on new performance materials for shoes, athletic and protective gear lately. Good breakthrough on vibration damping/shock absorbing 3D moldable material-Visorb Life is good because it's life and trying to make the most of it with family and friends. Thankful for every day and moment which is full of new opportunities, experiences and memories 😀

Geometry

07.30.2015 by Mark Forman

This was taken a couple of years back in Lukang, Taiwan. One of my favorite cultural spots in Taiwan and consequently a place I like to visit repeatedly. This is inside the Long Shan Temple which is a great location to shoot due to it's distinctive architecture, scale of the place and the lighting it offers […]

Holy blow the smoke out of the cobwebs Batman! It's been a while since I posted here. Yeah the usual distractions-real life, other social media blog killing sites, etc. How have you all been.

Rubick’s Cubed

04.27.2015 by Mark Forman

Some days you and the camera are one. Something closely approximating that in any case. It's hard to explain but when you're in that zone it's a lot of fun and kind of effortless. Other times the camera seems to way a million pounds and is enjoying your misery and inability to come up with […]

What’s Up With That?

03.16.2015 by Mark Forman

One of the nice things about having your own site is that you can just rant and shout into the abyss with abandon. If passer's by want to join in-well that's great. If they want to shake their heads out of pity or disgust, well that's ok too. This was from a day where it […]

Been a Long Time Since I Rock and Rolled

02.24.2015 by Mark Forman

Been a while since I've posted something here. Well of course I've been posting on other sites. We all know that Facebook , Google and even that rich zombie of a company Yahoo-via Flickr all offer photo hosting with blogging functionality. So individual sites like this one tend to get a little neglected...awww-get out the violin […]

On Learning Martian

01.26.2015 by Mark Forman

Photography is something that was always easier for me when alone. Numerous times when I went out with my son for some father son time if I brought the camera I'd find myself ignoring him some because I was distracted by 'shots" that caught my eye. I got tired of this tug of war and […]
