There was a time when I used to quite regularly take macro photos of insects and other creepy crawly things. For whatever reason, I haven’t done that much in the past few years. On Thursday, I went back to it though, at an old spot near my home. Why I chose to revive the tradition when Taipei’s temperatures and humidity are nearing their most intense is an awfully good question. Even though I went relatively early in the morning, I was pouring sweat before I took my first shot and by the time I finished, a little more than an hour later, not only was I covered in sweat, but my clothes were totally saturated.
At the end of the year, many folks like to do a review and choose their 10 best; be it movies, songs, books etc. I’ll join in on the fun, though I wouldn’t call these my 10 best. More like 10 that caught my eye in quick review. Some I don’t even know why I like, but I like them nonetheless. No particular theme; I will just show them in chronological order.
For the first new photos of the new year, I am going with something a little out of the ordinary for me. On Sunday, I tagged along with a local photo group to an abandoned apartment complex. Also joining us were Melody, Tany and Elin, who would be our models for the day. Although I shoot a lot of photos of people, working with actual models is something I don’t do a lot. It was a cool location and the people were great, making for a very fun afternoon. Here are some of the photos.
