Through the lens

09.24.2008 by Mark Forman

Lately I have been shooting a variety of different subjects in and around town on errands and photo walks. Hope you like some of them. One of the buildings at Taichung's China Medical Center. Shot while waiting for my appointment for a check up there. This is one of the largest teaching hospitals in Taiwan and […]


Metallica: Death Magnetic

09.17.2008 by Mark Forman

Who would have thought that I'd be this pleasantly surprised by Metallica's newest release. Yes, the same band that didn't and maybe still doesn't get the Net... Well they do get tight crunchy guitars and a (welcome return to) "meaty" drum sound where the thin trash can sounding ones reigned before. In  returning to their earlier […]

These shots were taken on a recnt Saturday photo hunt-mainly at local Minshu Folk Park and Beiping Afternoon Market. Thought this was a great sky and would show well in minimal B/W.

Byrne & Eno: Everything That Happens Will Happen Today

09.04.2008 by Mark Forman

I fnally got access to streaming player on the Everything That Happens Will Happen Today site after I installed Google Chrome. For some reason Firefox 3 Browser didn't allow me to see it. Another one of those connectivity voodoo things I guess. I also was inspired to give it a good listen after listening to my favorite […]


Sometimes Black and White…

09.02.2008 by Mark Forman

Recently I've come to realize that black and white have there place in the digital image space. So I've now begun to produce some of my pictures in black and white. Included in this selection and from here on I'll probably have regular offerings of B&W photos. Nothing as minimal as antenna making lines against the […]

Odd how these 2 pics came together on same day. The empty shoes were sitting nearby my office overnight for at least 12 hours. The ambulance was busy going to get it's patient methinks... Have you "vanished" lately? Any plans to?
