…and then I pivot on the bridge to capture this.

In Taitung, Taiwan at SanXianTai (三仙台) where this Eight Arches Bridge takes you over the ocean to a small island.  It’s quite the view, even with the unwelcoming rain.

A low light shot from one of my favorite temple visits and festivals in Thailand.  I was at Wat Phan Tao during the week of YiPeng and Loy Krathong (Lantern Festival) and the temple grounds were glowing with thousands of flickering candles in terra-cotta bowls.  Monks were going around keeping the candles lit throughout the night and helping people place their candles on torches, afloat in the pond, and various locations everywhere.  Make a donation, get a candle, write your name (and message if you wish), light your candle, and then find a spot to add to the magical glowing atmosphere.

Balinese Hindus make these for daily offerings.  One of the locals I hung out with was making these the night before so they’d be ready first thing in the morning.  They’re placed around the house/business, doors, small shrines, and directly on the ground/street.  
There are specific materials and components used, as well as specific colors in a particular order (white, red, yellow, and blue) to symbolize a different Hindu God.  As they are all over the streets and sidewalks in Bali, it is “okay” if you accidentally stepped on or kicked one of these, as long as you weren’t intentionally trying to damage it.

"…Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.  And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition."

BE different. You ARE different. It’s ok. We all are. Be bold and stand out from the crowd.

(Here’s one of my containers shots as a little tribute to my talented friend @dj_jiro who has a heart of gold and mysteries to unfold. 
During my visit in Fukuoka, he shared his secret #containerlove sanctuary with me. We spent that day “playing in puddles” and shooting containers and reflections.)

| Making Sense of Incense |


We pray, we hope, we wish, we believe.  However you choose to have faith in yourself, the world, your religion, the universe, or in humanity, often times it’ll provide a sense of ___. 
(That’s for you to determine) 😉


Taiwan’s most common religions are made of some combinations of folk religion, Taoism, Buddhism, and Confucianism.  With “…more than 16,000 registered temples…Taiwan has more temples per capita than any other country in the world.”


The incense sticks are lit and burned for use during prayers and worship, and it signifies a form of offering as you express your respect and gratitude.


Here, I got up close and personal with the sticks that always left my fingers pink and red since I was little.

Slide and ride, and hope for the best.  Sometimes the “no agenda” days turn out to be some of the best when you find great company you get along with.  Enjoy the ride you’re on, however mundane that may seem.

The iconic colorful umbrellas in Laos.  Bright.  Beautiful.  Bold.  

Laos was very colorful: with vividly lush green trees, shining gold temples, vivid saffron robes, rich red mud roads, and lots of brilliant  colorful artwork at the night markets.

#latergram from my Japan travels. I love going to grocery stores in every country I visit, and I have quite a bit of OCD appreciation as a former operations and merchandising manager. 

Japan is simply organized in every possible way of the word. And efficient. This by no means showcases what I’m saying, but if you’ve been, you know what I’m talking about.

Went traveling around the island of Taiwan with my friend via train going counterclockwise to various cities and making a full circle back to Taipei.  Kaohsiung’s metro is nice…but can’t even begin to compare to Taipei’s MRT system.
