My original plan was to go out and do some street photography on Christmas morning. Christmas isn’t a holiday in Taiwan so everyone was in work and I had the morning to myself. The weather was raining on and off, though, and I didn’t like to idea of the scooter ride to the place I had planned to go, so instead I decided to deliver some of the street portraits I had recently printed out.
I don’t often do street portraits, or I don’t plan to, the conditions have to be perfect – most importantly I have to be in the right mood to actually ask someone if I can take their photo, and then have the chat that usually follows. I don’t mind chatting, but a lot of the time I want to keep to myself and thoughts when out with the camera.
