two shots with nothing in common

December 1, 2006 - I was like, what the hell was I shooting? It's one of the staircases leading up to the footbridge I like shooting, but so what? But I think it was because they totally re-modeled it, and this was in the final stages when they were completing the stairs. I liked it before when it had a classic worn look of copper green. Now it's white and shiny with lots of glass. The basic frame is the same, though, so OK.

This reminds me that when I move I'm gonna have to find a new default shot. As for the default shots of the footbridge, I don't think I shot it nearly enough as the project calls for, both the fisheye default shot and the normal camera default shot. *gasp* Did I just imply the fisheye isn't a "normal" camera?! What's normal? Are you normal?! Curse you, curse you all to hell! No, no, little fisheye, you are normal, and I love you just the way you are. (I just saw a movie with a scene like that. I rolled my eyes).

December 2, 2006 - 警察摩托車, police motorscooters, Renai Road (仁愛路). It was cloudy so I held the shutter open for a few seconds, thus the blur. I probably didn't need to hold it open quite so long, it still being daylight. But overcast in Taipei is pretty dark.
