This photo was taken during a concert which ended the Hsinchu County International Folk Drum Festival. While I planned on checking out more drumming that day, I missed much of it, unfortunately. The reason for this was because of some schedule/location confusion as well as some unseasonably cold weather which made me look like a big wuss.
Anyway, on to the photo. More will come – but don’t expect much drumming! I was mostly attending a concert in the evening. There were some very cool shows, though – including Taiwanese pop singers, a martial arts demonstration, and an orchestra with fireworks at the end.
This martial arts demonstration was very impressive and put on by members of what I gather to be Taiwan’s military. It was a tough set of shots to take, as I was reaching over shoulders and having struggle with timing shots.
