As you might notice – if you are reading the web version of this – I have a new layout! I decided to go with a larger-photo theme due to the fact that few people actually click on the links – and I don’t blame them. The last theme was a bit cluttered and dark, and I hope this brightens things up while still keeping the black background which works great for showing photos. If you have any thoughts, sound off in the comments!
I’m moving away from Oulipo at my own risk – I was getting free traffic from WordPress since they thought I did a good job with it – so that kept me from moving away. Anyway, I’m glad I chose this full-frame – it reminds me of the Big Picture by the Boston Globe – a big force in getting me into photography.
My only fear now is page-load time. I know that I’ll not load up a webpage if it’s taking too long. I will be experimenting with different ways to handle this, so I apologize for any craziness in the next week.
Anyway, on to some street scenes from Jhubei and Ershui. This is a mix between the last two weekends.
At the corner of Guangming 6th, Jhubei.
Ershui train tracks.
Taiwan pijou – or beer, Ershui.
Taoist mirror – meant to reflect away evil spirits, Ershui.
Socks! This is a reason I like the larger layout – this would make a lot less sense with a smaller image.
An address box, Jhubei. These are very common – basically telling where you are in terms of the street number and city.
