Resting #2

I found an amazing sketch picture of this woman's hand tatoo done by an early adventurer to the island 125 years ago.

Camera - Fuji FinePix S5000
Date - 2/1/05
ISO - 200
Aperture - f3.2
Exposure - 1/75
Focal Length - 57mm

Added USM

I'll add that I'm not a total goober - a 125 year old sketch isn't all that exciting in normal circumstances. But I had lost hope that I would ever be able to find any significant information about Taiwan's aborigines in English. The artist, a missionary, was in a nearby village (the names have all changed since then, so I don't know which), but he could have been sketching the hand of this woman's great- grandmother. How cool!
