All that Glitters - Taipei

Our days are numbered. Two to be specific. It seems like we just arrived in Taiwan yesterday, largely because of digital cameras and the fact that we've taken pictures of everything to jog our memories! We are a little bit sad to leave, but it is defintely time to get home and start a new stage of life as parents. I think image of the National Library is something like what our memory of this year will be like - a sparkling, magically unique place and period of our lives.

We'll be on the road for the next six weeks or so - to the Yunnan province of China, Beijing, Ulaan Bataar for the Nadaam Horse Festival, Korea, and then back home to real life! So unless I find a good way to post pictures on the road, we'll have a bucketfull of travel pictures. I'm also looking forward to putting together a good aborigine gallery from our year, so the Asian flavor of Unplugged should last at least a little longer! Thanks so much and see you in August!

Propped the camera up in the U curve of an umbrella bottom so I wouldn't have to stick the camera straight in the puddle. Needless to say, the umbrella wasn't keeping the camera dry, so I did my best to shield the lense with my hand.

Great colors and lighting. I'm not sure why you shot at f22 unless you wanted the light bursts. Nice photo.
