    1. I stood in front of that house for a long time, admiring the light. :) Thank you melly, I think this film was perfect for the time and place. :)

  1. Love the name of the mountain. Its nice to have such a wonderful place to just watch the time passing by in different shades of colour..

    1. I agree with you, awono, especially since this one was such a short hike up! It took only like 20 or 30 minutes to this view. :)

    1. Evenings used to be my least favorite part of the day when I was younger, I hated the idea of the day ending! But now I see it in a different way, especially when the diminishing light works the best in film photography. :)

  2. There’s something about the light in the sky in the eastern hemisphere… This is part of the reason why I love your blog. The colors in your photographs remind me of photographs taken in China from when I was too young to remember, or old ones of just my parents.

    Like I said, there’s something about the light in the sky in the eastern hemisphere, and you do a great job of capturing it.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words, Frances ♥ I’m so glad to hear my photographs evoke those feelings in you. :) :) :)

  3. Such a beautiful sunset! Taiwan is a very mountainous country isn’t it? Here in Chicago, it’s so flat, the only way to get a bird’s eye view is to stand on top of the skyscrapers!

    1. Yes, Taiwan is extremely mountainous, and the mountains in Taipei are especially accessible. I hope you get to visit some day! :)

  4. That is the coolest looking building, ever. Taken at sunset? These are so spectacular. The first few definitely look like they were taken a few decades ago; they just have that “look.” The purple light and the shadows are magnificent. You really do find beautiful things through that lens of yours.

    1. That is our famous Taipei 101 ♥

      The light was not *actually* purple, it’s the tones that came from this roll of expired film. Glad you find them beautiful though! :) :) :)

    1. The hike was probably short on hindsight… I think I huffed and puffed a little myself going upwards! So happy you liked it! ♥

  5. Wow! How do you find places like these? I love the 4th photo, it’s like what they call the urban jungle. Except that it literally is the city + the mountains together :)

    1. Haha, thank you so much! Actually, it’s a very popular spot for both tourists and locals to enjoy the view. Early this year they added a metro station near this mountain and it’s now very accessible!
