low light flash shots

January 28, 2007 - Across the street from the northeast corner of Daan Forest Park on weekends are the Jianguo Holiday (Weekend) Jade Market and Flower Market. During the weekdays they're all car parks underneath the Jianguo Expressway. They run for several very long blocks, maybe about half a kilometer total. They're great for people watching if you can stand the crowds constantly nudging, rubbernecking, and bumping into you. Which I often can't.

Irises at the flower market.

I thought I could handle it better than I do. Taiwanese crowds in particular make me hostile. I don't understand why these people can't see in front of them and bump me from behind. Sometimes when I get really annoyed, whenever I feel a bump like that on my backpack, I just stop and force them to go around me. Maybe it's a cultural thing, and it's their way of being friendly. Not.
