We’d wanted to visit Zizhu Village – nondescript Military Dependents’ Village turned tourist hotspot via the power of art – on the day we arrived in Kaohsiung but were warned by the lady running the hostel that she’d heard the village had moved. Instead, she suggested that we visit Pier-2 Art Center, where we spent a great afternoon. But the possibility of the village still available for visit kept nagging at the back of our minds so we scoured the Internet that night and found that people were still visiting it a couple of weeks ago and back it went on our schedule for the next day. Evelyn offers a short background on the village and really awesome photos on her blog.

I’ve been relishing my new hobby of gardening for about three months now and let me tell you, it is most definitely growing on me like film photography did. I just can’t stop planting. These were taken when I planted my first seeds and my herd has grown from one pot to ten since then. Watching flowers bloom is possibly one of the best things in my life right now; I am a lover of small things.

I have my first roll of black and white film loaded into my Canon FTb right now; a few shots have been taken but always with too much thought. I have a hard time convincing myself that I can go around snapping my everyday pictures on black and white film and expect them to turn out decent, plus the weather has been awfully bleak lately…
Too much thought. I need to leave these thoughts behind and head out with my black and white film tomorrow. I hope the lack of color surprises me as pleasantly as redscale film did.

It has to be said that we were there at the correct time – late afternoon, best kind of light for photos and just in time for the sunset – in the most beautiful weather. And that abandoned floating restaurant that sits in the middle of the river just pushed the nostalgia level up a notch, doesn’t it?
