八家將 (Ba Jia Jiang), or the “Eight Generals” at a festival in Tainan.

When I first started this blog in 2010, I had no idea how much it would help my photography develop.I started out as an enthusiast with a DSLR and while I’m still an enthusiast, I feel I developed my skills in real ways – of course I was in “cheat mode” living here in Taiwan, but I worked hard to learn quickly and it certainly paid off.

My wife and I have decided to move back to the US soon. When exactly is not known, but I will be changing my blog into a general photography blog in the next few weeks. This blog will remain up, but will not be updated. The site is located at and this photoblog will be moved over to my new site, will redirect to that site in order to appease the Google gods, but will be a bit of a misnomer, to say the least – at least after I move back to the States. Because I now have family (by marriage) in Taiwan, I’m sure there will be new photos of Formosa in the future – I’m just not sure when we will return.

I should say a quick thanks to the family and friends who followed this and also to the complete strangers who joined me in exploring Taiwan! I’ve really enjoyed getting to know people around the world through this site and am grateful for the people who have expressed interest in my photography. I was always excited to see what countries my visitors are from and I hope that I represented Taiwan well!

  1. Best of luck with your new endeavor, Josh. Thank you for sharing wonderful images of my home country that I left behind many years ago.

    Thanks a lot Josh. Thanks to you I have seen places and people etc. that I would have never seen otherwise.

  3. An early “Welcome back” … and, having followed you for quite some time now, I want to say thanks for sharing all the wonderful street photography, and all the other images of Taiwan (and surrounding areas). It’s been a great glimpse into a part of the world I’ve never been to.

    Here’s hoping your move back to the US is safe, and without incident.
