Travel Photo Contest – Mac Dy
During our recent trip to Taipei, Taiwan it rained most of the time and clouds obscured the top half of the building. Right after dinner one night, the sky cleared up just enough for me to grab the tripod for a quick shot of the Taipei 101.
The 101 can be seen throughout the city as it dwarfs all the other buildings. It is as much a tourist attraction as it is an architectural wonder that represents the ongoing modernization of Taipei. Rather than going up to a higher elevation to shoot a sweeping landscape I choose to present the 101 in a view that most people see but take for granted already.
