[Photographing 2015] – The Eighth Week
The eighth week of 2015 started with some bangs from firecrackers in Taiwan as several Taiwanese greeted the New Lunar Year by making some noise.
And while most Taiwanese were stuck in traffic jams as cars seemed to clog the freeways during the holidays, we decided to stick close to home. We did a few short day trips here and there, but never venturing too far.
Here are some photos I took during the first week of Chinese New Year – which just happened to occur during the eighth week of [Photographing 2015]!
