Bending Over Backwards - Pingtung

Taiwan, if nothing else, is a place of overwhelming kindness, where people are more than willing to welcome a stranger. I truly did not understand generosity, gratitude, and selflessness before coming. I confess that I thought it strange that the recurring adjective to describe a place could be "kind," but our advisors proved astute in their description. A big thank you to all of you who have bent over backwards for us!

The notion of bending over backwards for someone is always lamented as a passing value in the modern age. I took this in Sepia to enhance the sense of nostalgia (and because I wanted to goof off with the settings on a new camera!)

This shot has a lot of potential. You should definitely get in much closer and make a clearly identifiable subject. The image looks really dark too and lots of detail is lost in the shadows. There's plenty of spirit and excitement to capture here.
