The January Numbers.

– visited one brand new baby, little Samuel (as photographed here with his beautiful mama).
– went to the gym ten times, really need to up that number!
– developed five rolls of films, four of which I used for the first time, two of which were black and white
– checked out four books from the library, all on watercolor painting
– took one trip out of Taipei (to Yilan), really need to up this number too!
– sent out five letters via snail mail
– cooked our own food three times (we are so bad at eating in)

All in all, I’m pretty pleased with how the first month of 2015 went. How was your January? I hope it was real good and that February is going to be even better.

Arriving in Lanyu / Orchid Island / 蘭嶼.

Negative0-21-20A(1)

Lanyu (蘭嶼), which translates literally into Orchid Island, is a high island off the southeastern coast of Taiwan and home to the Tao (達悟族), a group of Taiwanese aboriginal people. You’ll spot a lot of colors, motifs and art that are distinctive to the aboriginals in some of my photographs taken in Lanyu.

We had planned a very short getaway and to save time we chose to travel by air. It was a 15-minute flight from Taitung Airport in what I would call the smallest airplane ever (it sits 19) and our hearts were in our throats the whole damn time.

Despite my general disdain for airplanes, Lanyu is so beautiful that I never had the time to worry about our impending plane ride back, not even once, while we were there. We rode on the scooter our guesthouse owner rented to us (unfortunately not the one pictured below) and rode round and round the island, discovering something new to stop for every so often.
