I’ve always enjoyed tilt-shift photography, also known as miniature faking or diorama effect. It is a process in which a photograph of a life-size location or object is made to look like a photograph of a miniature scale model.

The conventional way to achieve this is to use a tilt-shift lens. However, such illusion can also be simulated by post-processing software. And, in recent years, there are even smartphone apps or camera features that can fake the tiny toy town effect right away.

Weekly Photo Challenge: ROY G. BIV

Rainbow Bridge

Rainbow Bridge

I think there are plenty of “rainbow bridges” around the world and I have seen quite a few already. This one is the Rainbow Bridge in Taipei City (Taiwan). Hopefully, it is good enough for Weekly Photo Challenge: ROY G. BIV … all the colors are present 🙂

Capturing the motion of the floating lanterns at Pingxi, Taiwan. And can you see that panda lantern in the background? It was super clumsy as it rose slower than the rest 🙂

This is my response to Weekly Photo Challenge: Motion

Weekly Photo Challenge: Converge

KM 82

KM 82

KM 82 is the starting point of Inca Trail (3-day hike) to Machu Picchu. From here, it appears that everything converges to infinity. Discouraging, and yet exciting!

Willis Tower (still commonly referred to as Sears Tower) is an iconic skyscraper in Chicago.

One Night in Taipei

A wet night in Taipei. I love the reflection on the ground, which somehow enhanced the convergence effect.

These are my interpretations of the theme Converge. Which do you like?
