Double Ten… a Day for Photos
For locals, The good thing about Double Ten is that its a national holiday… meaning a day off. So what else better than picking up my camera pack and go out to take my photos!
Frankly, you never run out of things to take pictures of in a city like Taipei. Since I don’t drive here, the only choices I have are scenic spots reachable by public transportation.
One place the comes to mind is Taipei 101. I admit – I totally forgot about the world’s second tallest building, primarily because I see it everyday when I go out to lunch. Yes, it’s arguably the biggest landmark in Taipei, but you don’t realize what you see until you walked around the area and try to find different angles to take shots with your camera.
So for this entry, I’ve looked through today’s work and chose some of the shots of Taipei 101 which looks good by my standard.
Again, I got lucky today because I had a chance to see Taipei 101 in the sun, twilight, and rain. Of course, the highlight has to go to the wonderful double-rainbow that appeared after the rain.
This picture is interesting because the blue is right above the top of the tower.
What made me real angry was the random rain that began and stop all of a sudden. Seriously, rain is the biggest enemy of the digital camera – no questions.
Here’s changing the camera’s white balance setting to “fluorescent light” and turning the sky deep blue.
101 seems to put all these interesting symbols on the top floors all the time…
Here’s for a little fun… an image of 101 behind a curtain of water.
Got lucky with this shot… probably in the best place to see it.
Finally, a word on the national holiday via picture:
I love the red clouds…
