Adventures in Fooding - Taipei

Anita and I are proud of the fact that we can stomach (literally and figuratively) a much broader range of 'food' than our North American peers, and so we take photos of some of the more exotic or interesting fooling adventures we've been on. Here's a quick set from our adventures in Taiwan. Every once in a while, even we find something so unappetizing or appallingly unsanitary that we won't eat them. The first photo in this series is one of those cases. Really, who DOESN'T want to eat a yummy pork snout hanging a foot off the ground, unrefrigerated on a table in the street exposed to the splashing of puddles from passing vehicles. Did I mention this was literally on the street? There were no sidewalks. Yum.

A Certain Aesthetic

I noticed a certain theme tonight in many of my photographs - I am quite drawn to symmetry and the images of looking at the road ahead or the path forward. Images like these really speak to me both aesthetically, as well as symbolically in the sense that Anita and I are constantly looking towards the next adventure up ahead.

Back and Jetlagged

So we got in last night at 2am after a 3 week adventure in Taiwan and Hong Kong, where I had the opportunity to go on an evening photo walk with a group of amazing street photographers. Unfortunately, after having seen some of the mind-blowing results they got from that evening, I'm now dreading seeing my film once I get it developed, cause I know they'll be complete shite in comparison.

Anyways, I bought a couple of portable LED lamps on the cheap from somewhere in Sham Sui Bo in Hong Kong, and wanted to test them out. I rarely do self portraits cause I hate how vain they make me feel. But Anita isn't a willing model at the best of times, and she's jet lagged like a mofo, so you get two shots of me instead.

Set up: overhead soft lamp, dimmed. LED with barn doors to camera left. Second LED behind subject, elevated and to camera right. Shot with a Nikon D300 and Voigtlander 58mm f/1.4 Nokton lens.
