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.

Bugs here are great, aren't they. I have no idea what the wiggly guy is, but that's a really nice composition (I assume you've got a reasonable camera because you've achieved a small DOF). Camouflage by Chanel?


Thanks Finley. I've got a crappy old Sony Cybershot and the display is degrading. That was shot on the Macro option. I think I'm going to get one of the new mirrorless cameras. I had an SLR years ago and I remember lugging it around everywhere.

No, I don't know what the wiggly guy is either, but there were loads of them hanging from the trees at that temple. It was crazy.

Don't get the Chanel reference I'm afraid. Is it an ad on TV? I hardly watch any.

Trust me, after the cybershot you won't get/like any other camera that even compares to it. Those cybershots are fab....mine is a 3.2 mega pix thingy only, but I absoloutely lurrrve it!

Mine's a very old one though. About 5 or 6 years I think. It's got an awful delay between shots and between pressing the shutter and taking the shot. And the zoom - wide angle-ness is really limited. The best thing about it is that it's tiny and I can carry around with me absolutely anywhere.

Nah, I think I'm definitely going to get one of the mirrorless cameras that are like SLRs in many ways but half the weight. Then if I want to be adventurous and get different lenses I can.

I just really, really need a new camera. Going home soon so maybe I can get one duty free.

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. The girl can chew with her mouth open, that if you love her, you do not care. If you do not lover her, if her pinkie toe is half an inch deviant, the relationship is doomed. - Icon
