Before I start today’s post, let me say thanks to the new visitors. WordPress.com has an awesome feature where they pick a blog to feature along with about 7-8 others on their front page. This has increased my traffic and made me thankful that I’m not running my own server! I learned that I was “freshly pressed” through a comment and checked my email. As of only 12 hours later, I have 546 hits today alone, and counting. This isn’t bad at all for a blog which usually averages 30 per day!
If you’d like, go ahead and subscribe. I post daily photos of my time in Taiwan and would love to see some more comments. Thanks to those of you who have commented in the past! If anyone with a photo or relevant travel blog is interested, I’m also always up for trading blogroll links.
Today’s post shows some street scenes from Taipei. Specifically, this is Ximending, a district known for its fashionable shops and plethora of advertising. It’s a pretty “trendy” district, and full of young people. Of course, because this is Taiwan, street food is still all over.
These shots were mostly taken using the new Nikkor 35mm f/1.8. In addition, I used the 70-300mm on some of these photos.
