- I think this is my last post on Asia for this year. Thanks for bearing with me as I catch up. A note on picture taking: the camera I am using is a point and shoot, Canon PowerShot A470. It was about $115. I leave it on manual and only use supermacro. That’s all I do. I don’t really know how to work a camera more than point and shoot. For mushroom undersides, I slide the camera under the mushroom cap and push the button. I don’t look at what I’m taking because I can’t get down that low for those shots. Anyhow, I love animals. Animals are my first love. So as I look for mushrooms, I’m also keeping an eye out for animals. These are few of animal pictures from Japan and Taiwan. Not enough critter pictures as there are mushrooms. They’re more elusive in the urban space and they flee and hide so one would need a better camera than what I got. Mushrooms stay pretty still so I don’t need more than a snap and shoot to get up close to them. These photos below are from Tokyo and Taiwan. We spent 2 amazing weeks in Taiwan up and down the west coast of the country being with extended family and being on our own. Taiwan is the shit. It’s amazing. It’s independent and should stay that way.
And finally, this last photo was taken by Phil Kaffen. I just love it. Lots of stray cats in Tokyo. Lots of stray dogs in Taiwan.
