Portable Joys & Taipei

happiness

Sometimes, when you are in foreign place it is the tiniest things that count. I’ve been in Taipei for two days, and of course, I take pictures of all the wrong things. A small flower at the bus stop, cynical cats, an apartment block on a grey day. But these are the things I want to remember the small sweet pleasures. The beauties that I can hold onto.

    I’ve been practicing pausing to take photos of the little things…some of my very favorite photos are now of the little moments.

  2. Love them! Especially the cat and the apartment block! But all of them, and your drawings too 🙂 Makes me want to go back to Taipei!

  3. I am terrible at photographs. I used to think you just took a million pictures and picked out the good ones but then I was looking over your digital rolls of our vacation and you mostly got it right the first time around. I might have to switch to digital because I’m spending like 10 dollars per usable picture shooting on 120 BW. My last roll, 4 I thought I could take without flash and came out so dark you could barely make out anything, 2 were shot against the sun and no amount of photoshop could un-overexpose it, and 2 I shot while in a tilt-a-whirl and pointed the camera the wrong way. Oh and 1 I just lost because I loaded the film wrong and started on the 2nd shot. So 3 out of 12 and it cost like 30 dollars to develop because it was BW instead of color. AHHHHHHH. I should stick to my phone camera and instagram filters.
