First couple of the day! They remain nameless at the moment because I didn't ask them
After some positive encouragements from friends about the blog, I decided to go out again today. This time I went back to the area between Dunhua Nan road (section 1) and Zhongxiao East Road. The weather was great today, blue skies and a big hot sun.
Smily Vicky and her mysterious friend.
The sun brought out a lot of couples, smiles and good moods, so it was fairly easy to persuade people to have their photos taken today.
I meet a sweet couple first but as I was too keen to get started I didn't get around to asking their names. It would be great if you can tell me.
Hip couple, Sky and Lin
After that, I met Vicky and the girl with no name. They were meeting their boyfriends (I guess they're your boyfriends, yeah?), who were waiting for them on scooters.
I ran into Sky and Lin, then Ken, but didn't have chance to find out much about them.
Then I met a worker from Vicious Circle but he didn't want his photo taken as he was working, which I thought was very un-punk of him. Still, he had time to tell me that something was happening tonight at Vicious Circle and there'll be plenty of people to take photos of. It kicks off at 8 ish, if anyone is interested.
John's personality certainly matched today's weather, sunny and lively. He's from Hong Kong but is often in Taipei buying computer components.
John is over from Hong Kong on business. He was with his girlfriend but she didn't want to be photographed. He said that he's often in Taipei buying computer parts. He seemed in his element today with the good weather.
This is Ken. He likes music, what type I don't as my Chinese wasn't good enough to find out.
This is Ju. He owns Classic, a designer clothes shop. He also designs clothes. I think he also DJs
Ju is the owner of Classic, a designer clothes shop on Dunhua Nan Road, section 1, 187 alley, no 63. He also designs clothes and I think he DJs, I'm not sure because we were talking in Chinese. Next month, there'll be a party at Huashan were he will be DJing. When I took his photo, he seemed a little nervous but he's actually very different when you talk with him. He's much more out going and chatty.
Playful Shu Hwa and Ken Tzu (sounds like Gen). Shu Hwa has the best type of camera - a Canon
Shuhwa and Kentzu (Gencu - Pinyin?) were shopping. Shuhwa was a natural in front of the camera and played around alot. They complimented my Chinese, which was very kind of them.
Thanks everyone for your time today. It was a great day for meeting strangers. Take care and perhaps we'll meet again sometime in the future
