A Day in 10 Photos: 03.18.2013

Since the primary goal for me on this trip is to pull together some photos from my film cameras, I dumbed down my 5D setup with ease in mind. The day before I left, I picked up the Canon f2.8 40mm pancake lens and took off the battery grip. It’s amazing how much of a difference in bulkiness and weight it makes. I’m more likely to stuff it into a musette or a bag and focus on the film shots.

For the past 24 hours, I’ve been in airplanes and airports, making my way to Taiwan. The guys from Mission Workshop arrived tonight and we took a stroll around our neighborhood in search of a bite to eat. After a day of traveling, the last thing I feel like doing is narrating any kind of story, so enjoy nine more photos in the gallery. Don’t worry, there’s more to come from Taipei this week!

  • What’s with the black tape over the Canon logos? Making the camera more nondescript?

    • Yep.

    • Also counters against annoying logo reflections when shooting through windows/glass.

  • oh look someone drew a half pipe.

  • Y’all should ride up to Sun Moon Lake! Don’t know how safe that is or not though…haha

    2 words on Taiwan – oyster pancake. OK 2 more – night market.
    gambei!

    • I second the oyster pancakes, they are really good. If you want to get some traditional Taiwanese food get Lou Row Fon. Best phonetic smelling I could write, hope it helps.
