Street photography competition

A street photography competition caught my eye. I shoot constantly when out and about and have a huge number to choose from. A category is “world” and having spent six months in Taipei I can make a selection from there. However, my world is now Camden and I can choose a set I’ve shot since […]


Shi-Da purveyors of deep-fried goodness

This is a paradoxical country: everyone eats hugely and widely, yet on the whole, people remain resolutely skinny. Which I think says much about the Western diet. This stall in Sh-Da night market is our occasional stop-off for cauliflower, mushroom, tofu and chewy fishy thing, lighty battered, deep fried then powdered with salty pepper and […]


From the inside looking out: cheeky fag

Cheeky fag outside Salty Peanuts café. Been a bit uninspired these last few days. There’s something about 40C temperatures that just drains the will to do anything.

Final Call for Shi-Da night market

Shi-Da night market again

We went out to Shi-Da again tonight after a typically tropical sudden torrential downpour. I’d recently discovered that the Nikon D300 has quite a useful black and white mode in contrast to the usual desaturated greyness you usually get. So tonight with old school film intent, I went out with the 50mm prime, the ISO […]


Shi-Da night market photowalk

On Tuesday night, went with my students on a walk round Sh-Da night market. I’ve done this a few times for fun, food and shopping and taken snaps but this was the first time with photographic intent. It was interesting. Much like the flower market, the trick was to get behind the action: behind the […]


The Best Place for Trendy Bags

Ah, Shi-Da night market. This place to go for odd foods and various styles of clothing. Most nights of the week it’s throbbing with people shopping for imported and handmade goods at nice prices. Oh, and mango ice. Mangos are now in season. Result! Related Posts:Street photography competitionShi-Da purveyors of deep-fried goodnessFrom the inside looking […]
