This was taken from the same place as yesterday's photo. I put it up on my other page awhile ago, but it seems better suited to this page. Posted by Hello

Ah, Taipei. I really like looking at this picture as it reminds me of a lot of nice moments. This is from Taida University's basketball arena. If you climb a few flights of stairs to the outdoor concourse, there is a 360 degree panoramic view of the city and the mountains surrounding it. This is looking east towards the 101. Posted by Hello

I posted this on my other page a few months ago, but thought it belongs here as well. One of the first pictures I took with my Canon 300D, this is looking into a two story parking garage under the expressway that runs above JianGuo N. Road. Posted by Hello

This is from Taipei...I wish I could remember which intersection. Something tells me it was somewhere around ZhongXiao-Dunhua. I do know it was a Saturday afternoon and I was looking south. Posted by Hello

I'm posting a few pictures today as I was away for the weekend. This is a picture from Sun Moon Lake, a scenic spot in the middle of Taiwan, in the area most damaged by the 9.21 earthquake of 1999. This is one of the many new hotels and buildings in the area - some not yet finished. A town still re-building 5 and a half years on. Make sure to go to outintheworld.blogspot.com to see more pictures from Sun Moon Lake. Posted by Hello
This is a picture of a building just down the road from me on the corner of MinQuan and JianGuo Roads. It is new, and at night, each square on the face of the building lights up. Sometimes they have multi-colored designs, sometimes English or Chinese words, and lately advertisements for Adidas. I have seen commercials and videos being shot outside the building. I have also seen auditions and concerts. It isnt as impressive as the 101, to be sure, but it is another example of Taipei's ultra-modern side. Posted by Hello
