Advertisements are everywhere in Taiwan. While the same is said of any industrialized country, it takes different forms here. You’ll see them not only on storefronts and signs, but on moving trucks (that blast out a recorded ad in Chinese) and, in this case, on the back of a tricycle. The good news is that there are very, very few billboards (I hate billboards!) and since it’s all in Chinese, it almost doesn’t seem like advertising. Kind of funny how that works.
This was taken in Taipei with the 35mm f/1.8 in Ximending. I thought it was odd sitting in the middle of a modern city’s shopping district as there were much more expensive ads all over the place – much like New York’s Times Square. The interesting thing about this is that I later found it advertises a hotline for men and women to call for… well… it’ll be awkward for me to keep talking… my family reads this.
