HC often like to ask me what I'm shooting. He would look at the direction my camera is pointing, scrunch up his face in a puzzled way and seemingly try to figure out what I could be possibly putting in my frame.
I don't blame him really, because I do tend to shoot... ...the most ordinary things. I especially like everyday street scenes, where no one's really doing anything, and nothing in particular is happening *lol*
Makes me wonder if it's why my all time favourite famous artist quote is this,
"I like boring things..." - Andy Warhol
Scenes from Taipei:
Mongo or Bangka district
Huashan 1914 Creative Park
I wanted to begin with my favourite place in Taipei this time. The funny thing was, we hadn't even intended to go at all in the first place. We were in Beitou for the day, done with our looking around when I recalled a friend mentioning Danshui once. It was on the same train line and so we thought 'why not?'.
It turned out really wonderful. We stumbled upon a beautiful sunset, and a quirky tiny cafe with a great view of the pier. As we sipped our mocha and iced chocolate, we saw the sun slowly turning amber, a deep pink, until it dipped its head under the horizon.
Sometimes the best things in life come where you least expect it.
It might have been quite an understatement to say that sometime in the middle of last month, we were fed up with work and decided to runaway to Taipei. In fact we decided to runaway so fast that we were booked and packed and gone in 5 days. To us that's probably the best kind of travel, with lots of 'we'll figure out when we get there' and very little waiting before we hop on to our plane.
We just wanted to unwind, slow down, and be quiet.
Happy to share more soon, for now it's off into the tub and to bed.
