“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” – Mark Jenkins
Color, light, and an explosive of vibrant energy! At least thats what I felt as I bumbled about this very intriguing city at night. Never have I felt this save at night while exploring a location. There is an extreme order and neatness to this “introduction to Asia” metropolis that is quite amazing to see first hand. I had heard stories about how it is illegal to spit your gum out on the street with the fine being quite hefty. I guess this no tolorance approach seems to be working as it is squeaky clean!
As far as the image……
I had this one on the cooker for a while (Mike, what on earth does that actually mean by the way?), and finally decided that it needed a little reverse and repeat action. I think the ole’ mirror image trick gives it a bit more life do you?
I hope to visit this great city again as there was an insane amount of construction happening all over the city when I was there. I don’t think this insatiable appetite for travel and exploration is going away any time soon, so I’m sure I’ll be there to see it!
