Old style store
An old store selling cloths. Dusty, rustic look, rails of equally rustic-looking cloths - as these stores used to be.
When passing by the store we caught a glimpse of an old store. Old doors, concrete floor and cloths hanging on the racks under the ceiling. The light was shining at the idling seller. There was only a split second to react and get the shot.

Japanese style beauty
There are many post-Japanese houses left, with many of them having been restored to the old glory. The Japanese aesthetic, spilling into a perfectly arranged garden, is further accentuated during a shower.
Tasting of Kavalan. Not the free one - which is pretty awful experience (unless you like somebody with a megaphone shouting at you when you given teh free drum of the cheapest of the stuff they make...).
The 400NTD is well worth it and you got to choose your 4 drums. Some seriously nice whisky on the list.
Elaborate Chinese roof. Lishan (梨山)
Sea, mountains, boats.
Sunset over the Fangliao port. It is not often you see boats in a port with mountains in the background. Add a weirdly red hue to contrast with teh colourful boats.
The next morning changed from warm red to cool blue. Peaceful. Tranquil.
Mending the nets
Fishermen nets being mended on the pier.
A range of old and battered boats line the Fangliao fishing port.
Fishermen mend their nets, stretching them on the pier.
The old fishing boats are beautiful. Colourful and full of character, often casting reflections on the calm water in the port.
red, blue, green
Devil is in the detail. The extra detail on these traditional boats is amazing.
