Daily Photos - Part 13

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.

Thanks Super Hans. I like the Mustang. Yesterday, from the same era I saw a Mustang, Corvette, and a Gran Torino, all imports to Australia of course.

After. I can't read at this level yet. But I did take it because of the electric pink and blue font, which matches quite nicely with the pink and blue stage right.

I meant the visual joke. I can't read at that level either! I found the contrast between the two humans striking similar poses but having very different levels of attractiveness very funny.

Oh yes, that is why I took it. I am told the girl is Jolin, so at least I know what she looks like now. :oops:

It's nice to see older classics. Cars these days are so dull - no imagination or creativity. Even the newer sports cars or high end cars lack a certain something. Machines of the 'era' were the pinnacle of a blend of performance and art, something which has now been abandoned to practicality and ergonomic utility.

There's a thread over there about this.

I have a 50mm f1.8 on an APS-C thingy (like a 75mm on a 35mm film camera).

Some pictures from a Taipei park made it to the DailymailUK. credit :bbe022001
Thus, some say it is over photoshopped. Experts here whom could judge?

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

Pretty neat pictures there with bridge and the fog, but I'd say it is shopped to death.

The HDR (high dynamic range) is rather popular right now, this is a good example of HDR. I've seen it used badly. But yea only possible in photoshop (or other photo editing software).
Just checking but you're a South African Engrish Teachur right? No. I'm a Russian nuclear physicist.
