Scenes of nothing in particular. But these non-things get interesting if one really looks.
There are little guides to behavior.
Precarious parking spot – the art of making do.
This village seems to have a particular issue.
Work in progress.
Nature and human presence.
Trying out a new lens… wifey was braving the heat at Sham Shui Po with me.
Trying to get into the flow. I think I was spotted.
Hard at work.
Was a bit self-conscious with wifey next to me but I did a good job of ignoring her.
I need a better camera bag… one with an external mesh pocket for a water bottle.
I can see wifey melting in the hot sun. Am ignoring her.
Listing them down.
Wifey is checking the time on her watch. Am ignoring her.
A 35mm lens gives me a 56mm view with the crop factor. Ok lah.
Maybe I should get that 7Artisans 50mm lens for a short telephoto 80mm equivalent.
Wait… where’s wifey…
This is an image that makes visual sense.
It’s nice and neat and there’s symmetry in the two pairs, and one more on the right corner. The centre is anchored by the signboard.
This one is odd.
You can’t see the subject. But that makes it interesting, I think…
Received funding some time ago to work on a book.
Am taking walks and doing some thinking.
It’s a street photography-based research.
Prepping my cameras.
It’s a social documentary of glimpses…
Thinking about stuff.
And running at times with quirky ideas.
Finally gave in and bought that mirrorless camera because it will help me save money. Haha.
Because with a few adapters, I could use my various Takumars, Leica mount lenses and Canon EF/EFS lenses. I accidentally bought a 28mm Industar…
The Voigtlander and a few others allow for zone focusing.
Though I wasn’t fast enough sometimes.
Looking and thinking with some focus peaking.
A homely arrangement.
We all need to find home.
Spent the entire day on board the ship.
Loved the whatchamacallit mini golf or croquet thing.
Good to know we were safe.
The kids loved this.
Pool deck as psychedelic space.
Rise and shine!
Wifey thought Eslite Bookstore at Taipei was the only place to go to, which I agreed.
What a place! It’s full of book lovers.
My kind of people.
This is what I do on a boring commute.
MRT and TRA back to Keelung.
Headed for the night market.
Are we hungry yet?
Check it out!
That’s the Keelung night market.
Loads of street food.
Street food, street hawkers, street photography.
There’s even a slice of Singapore/Malaysia/Indonesia!
I succumbed only to stinky tofu.
Back to the ship.
For a quiet beer.
Rise and shine!
The view from our balcony.
We were here.
Tiger, dragon, tourist.
But the stuff was really yummy.
On Royal Caribbean’s Voyages of the Sea, to Kaohsiung and Taipei (Keelung) from Hong Kong.
There were wonderful views at the top deck.
In a contemplative mood.
Lots to take in.
The restaurant queue was crazy at first.
But the restaurant was awesome.
Hiking with folks from my church, ECC HK.
Here. No, here.
What a view. Think about those property prices…
Are we lost?
Nope – we know where we are.
Here we go.
Can’t go wrong from here.
