At times our tasks in life can be very daunting. All we see is garbage mess and ruin. We can't make the adjustment and shift perspective to see the potential or the permutation of the near future.
Many people don't have a grasp for markets: stocks, bonds, futures, etc. Food markets are a good common denominator. They always have people around buying selling and looking.
Black Market is a good upbeat song(can it be a song without lyrics?), by Weather Report. The leadership in the band came from 2 former Miles Davis sidemen: Wayne Shorter on saxes and Joe Zawinul on keys.
An eclectic mix of images shot around my walking tour of my city: Taichung, Taiwan. I hope you liek the different colors offered in this mix.
A world within a world. There is so much going on around us. Some we see,some we glance at and some we really see.I've been having about a week of down time due to some camera issues. Hopefully this will be resolved quickly especially since I have a new vintage German manual lens I want to start using. It's a good week to keep looking even though I don't have my camera in hand to capture. Eye exercising.
Two of my favorite places in town to shoot are ChienKuo Market-the main wet and produce market in town and by the train station. There is one reason: The people. Both of those places offer a limitless supply of real people going through life. No pretense or artifice. Just buying or selling food or getting to or from where they want to go.
Roxy Music is a band that impacted me both aurally and visually from the instant I discovered them. Art, glam and cool music really made this band for me. Street Life is one of many of their good songs.
Juolan is a nice mountain town in central Taiwan. I visited there the day after Christmas with my friend Mr. Shao. He owns a nice little farm up in the hills where he grows persimmons and raises nice free range chickens. We always stop at the market to pick up some supplies before we hit his cabin. Here are some of the good folks of Juolan working their trade.
