I’m a very lazy person, and this trip to Taiwan was my only “break” from my day job, so I kind of slept a lot in the 7 days I was there. I usually wake up before noon, so by the time I get to arrive at the destinations, it’s already mid-afternoon. I got to explore more places later in the day, and that’s where I got the idea of to create a video of exploring Taiwan at night.

I also wanted to test how good on lowlight my camera was. I think it did pretty well, as it should be cuz it’s pretty expensive. lol

I really like the shot above, where the pale interior lighting of the train contrasts to the vibrant sunset outside.

What’s fun in exploring Jiufen at night is the nonexistent slow-moving crowd. You’ve got the streets to yourself!

Taiwan is very photogenic, so I’m not surprised that I’m satisfied with the result of my little experiment. Thanks to my laziness for getting me here, and also for showing me a totally different character of this country.
