Dragon Boat Race, Dazhi Park, Taipei, Taiwan 1


Such a frustrating day… .

The weather wasn’t the problem. It was nice and sunny with a good wind to keep things cool. It wasn’t the people, either. Everyone was caught up in the races and surrounding festival. There wasn’t a frown to be seen.

My camera died. Right after the second shot. All I was left with was my Kodak dP&S and mobile phone cam, which I tweeted pics from.

I arrived for the afternoon heats, which seemed to consist entirely of other Asian countries, such as Malaysia, the Philippines, and Japan, along with a number of local Taiwanese teams.

My Bessa needs a new shutter and will be going into the shot next week.
