Checking Out :(

30 minutes til we check out and hop on the next flight back to Singapore. :( The 8 days vacation just zapped past and it is back home … to reality! I’ll upload these photos taken on the streets of Taipei now … so that I won’t have a backlog of photos to go through when I get back home.

My favorite shot (above) … the only one in color. I walked back to the scene 3 minutes after walking past to take this shot … right in front of them. Strangely none of them seem to be bothered. Lol.

It has been lots of fun during these 8 days and I can’t wait to go on another vacation! Now if only I have the money to go on a permanent vacation. :( If all else go well, we might make another trip to Japan come 3rd quarter of the year to visit some friends there.

These photos were all taken with the X-Pro1 with the 35mm lens. Once I land in Singapore … I have to make the decision to either keep it … or return it. I am in a dilemma now! It is superb performer in low light (the noise handling … not the AF!), it looks sexy (though a big bulky compared to X-100) and it is quite a joy to use. Should I or should I not?!! If I do … I might have to let go my X-100 to raise some fund for the wide lens. Should I or should I not??!!

I think I might have fired one too many street photos this time.


  1. Welcome back home and to the mad world of work…
    Shame we have to work to be able to afford vacations…

    I await your decision…although…If I were you I shall keep the X100 for the compactness and the classic look of it.
    I don’t go for bulkiness anymore. :-)

    Good luck with your decision.

    By the way, is Taipei worth a visit? DO you have to go via HongKong?

  2. Forgot to say that the first picture is superb!!!!

  3. @Ta : Thank you. The first one is my favorite shot too. :) As for the X100 … I’ll have to make a decision today. *shakes head*

  4. Go Andrew go!!!

  5. @Ta : Don’t … don’t … tempt me! :(
