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.

Luckily, I was on the other side of the road when i experienced this hostile reception.
This could have ended up with some High Dynamic Running.

No worries- seems he had to keep his pants up anyway. :lol:
Very nice ! Wished my Instagram could capture this also hehe
I’m a dog shaped ashtray
I’m a shrugging moustache wearing a speedo tuxedo
I’m a movie with no plot, written in the back seat of a piss powered taxi
I’m an imperial armpit, sweating Chianti
I’m a toilet with no seat, flushing tradition down
I'm socialist lingerie
I'm diplomatic techno
I'm gay pastry and racist cappuccino
I’m an army on holiday in a guillotine museum
I’m a painting made of hair, on a nudist beach, eating McDonald's
I’m a novel far too long
I’m a sentimental song
I’m a yellow tooth waltzing with wrap around shades on

Who am I?
I am Europe

He'll be paying for excess baggage with bags that big under his eyes both metaphorically and literally.
"When liberty comes with hands dabbled in blood it is hard to shake hands with her." Wilde

"I don't know where the sun beams end and the star light begins. It's all a mystery." Flaming Lips

"a man's position here is not ruled so much by what he can earn as by what he can owe and still remain at large." Letters of a Shanghai Griffin

"It's called the American dream because you have to be asleep to believe it." George Carlin

The American oligarchy spares no pains in promoting the belief that it does not exist, but the success of its disappearing act depends on equally strenuous efforts on the part of an American public anxious to believe in egalitarian fictions and unwilling to see what is hidden in plain sight.

hostile reception? I'd say he was trying to smile. SuperHans you must be a newbie on this island, otherwise you would know already (or would've learned on this board) that Taiwanese people always smile.

great shot!

They don't look like the type that would be too receptive to Mei Mei bringing home Johnny Laowai. :roflmao:

Edit: This is going into my My Taiwan photo album on Facebook, if you don't mind.

I never commented but I loved Hans's (I think) pick pocket photo from a few weeks ago. It almost looks like it was staged but I believe you.

I've slowed down taking photos but I've really slowed down posting photos. Here are a few from each of the sets that I've done during the last 2-3 weeks. A lot more on my website or flickr.

Thus, some say it is over photoshopped. Experts here whom could judge?


I'm not an expert but I lived nearby (Neihu, Da Hu Park). I don't think it's over photoshopped.

Loved this. The perfect illustration for a ghost train story.

The number of megapixels does not determine a camera's picture quality; that's a marketing myth. The sensor size is far more important. (Use Google to find it. For example, search for "sensor size Nikon D90.")
