Light, shadow and color

Got a bug in me to go and shoot some photos in some new spots or ones that I haven't covered that well. I was still within my favorite light/time band:early morning or late afternoon. Here are a few images that were fun to shoot and I feel came out fairly well. Hope you agree.


I've walked by and shot this fountain before but when I saw this recent addition of lone Water Lily, just had to have it. I did nudge it a drop to get a slightly better angle.


I've been to this temple before up in the hills of Dakeng, but didn't have good light. I did this session.

This was the first time I visited this temple in the fields opposite JiuShe Park. Love the upward angle with some blue sky against the bright temple colors.


I knew this was going to be good just from the "keyhole" archway.


I received a call on my mobile just as I was going over this bridge. As luck would have it, this fellow was doing some fishing.


Some of the classic colors and shapes of traditional Chinese temple roofs.


I love the markets in Asia-this one is Taichung's largest Chienkuo market. They are so alive and crazy and colorful and ASIAN! My photos all available here for viewing.

  1. Thx PJ-enjoyed being there to take them. Saw Anthony Bourdain's PR show
    again. So want to go there and try lechon and mofogo?

  2. Well here we have all kinds of delicious noodles and dumplings. One of my
    favs is Dao Hsiao Mien-a fresh sliced noodle into tomato beef broth with
    pieces of beef tendon. Singaporean cuisine is nice. It offers a blend of
    Chinese(several types), Malay and Indian.

  3. Huh, this reply must have gotten lost in my Gmail. I don't remember seeing it last week. Maybe it got buried under a ton of spam.

    Anyhow, you're making me hungry dude. :-)

  4. I'm sure Puerto Rico like Taiwan is blessed with an abundance of inexpensive
    and delicious food stands.

  5. Nuyorican ya mean? :D Actually I just found a stand at the biggest night
    market in town that does decent empanadas. These of course are deep fried
    but there is other non-deep-fried fare avialable.

  6. You found a stand of empanadas in Taiwan? I guess that's only fair, we have egg drop soup and tostones at a growing fast food chain here called "Chino Latino". Not a joke, that's the name. Makes me laugh every time I drive by.
