Daily Photos - Part 13

Moderators: Tempo Gain, TheGingerMan

Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

Second of all, as in all honeymoons, all is well until it is not. It is until the unexpected happens that you will see all grievances surface -ask anyone in any relationship.

One of my best friends, Sam, playing with my son. And to think several years back someone on the flob advised me not to bother making friends with Taiwanese guys because "they're boring".

It is just north of Qingtiangang in Yangming Shan. You can descend down to the road to Jinshan and wait for the Jinshan-Taipei bus. Cute company adds to the experience :D

Last weekend I saw a poi fire group perform and I think I got my best pictures (3rd time). This was the first time that it was an expat group but it's one of those things where you have no idea how to take the photos. Most photos were taken at 0.3 or 0.7 seconds. more pics at my website

the smoker looks pretty cool. I imagine that's a difficult shot to get the light perfect like that.

Visited Liangshan Waterfall today but this was cooler. I was just a little front focused though. he wouldn't sit still so I ended using iso3200, 1/500s and f5.6 with a 135mm lens. it's also cropped because of a miserable min focus distance but that problem will be solved soon with a new toy.
