HSR first look
February 19, 2007 - Local train from Kaohsiung Main Station to New Zuoying Station. You just gotta love a country where you can still lean out a train door and shoot a lomo. But truth to tell, being able to do this won't last long in Taiwan. This would be unthinkable in Taipei, I think. And even in Kaohsiung, it's not allowed, and if a worker saw me hanging out the door, he would've told me to stay in the train. But the fact remains that I was able to do this, and no one came by and told me to stay in the train. And since I love trains, it was quite a rush to do this and get this shot.
After buying my HSR ticket for the next day, I had to wait for a train to go back to Kaohsiung Main Station. From the platform, the HSR trains were visible. Sweet!
