Taiwan 2012

Part of me loves Taiwan - the cheap food, shopping and convenient lifestyle. Another part of me struggles to get past the noise, pollution and dirt. My recent 3 week trip to Taiwan was a mixture of frustration and love. I spent the whole time in Taipei (except for a one day trip to the country side) so I thought I would be able to see everything I wanted to in Taipei, yet somehow there was so much I still felt like I missed...

However, I did really enjoy that I had so much time to go around exploring and taking photos. Before I went, my photography was pretty much all about my friends and my outings. However, in Taiwan I don't really have friends to constantly take photos of. Instead I spent time taking photos of landscapes, architecture and even more daring street photography. I even spent NYE taking photos of dancers - something I've wanted to do for a while!

I wish I had more time for stuff like this in Sydney. No wait, I wish I was less lazy when I'm in Sydney. When I'm at home, it's a struggle for me to bother to take my DSLR out of my house, let alone out of my bag to actually take photos. Sometimes I'm in a scenic area and I wish I had brought my camera with me. With university starting, I'm hoping to be exposed to more opportunities and meet more people that will inspire to go out and take more photos.
