Taipei is the amazing capital of Taiwan, with 7 million people. It is at the same time modern and traditional : leader in new technology, Taipei has kept as well its traditions, religion, temple and culture.
In Taipei you are really in a Chinese atmosphere, but at the same time, it has Western influences which make your travel easy and convenient. People are very welcoming and most of them speak well english. Taxis are honest in general and not expensive for a modern city. The subway is very convenient and can bring you anywhere. You can find all kind of food, at a very good quality for the price.
In this article, you will see many aspects of the city : the night markets and the authentic food they serve, the dynamic street life, the temples and their traditional architecture, some hotels, and the unique 101 Tower.

Mengjia Longshan Temple was built in Taipei in 1738 by settlers from Fujian. It is seen as an emblematic example of Taiwanese classical architecture.
Located in the center of the city, this temple is always busy, Taiwanese people being attached to their Buddhist tradition. They come to pray Buddha, pay respect to their ancestors, burn incense, and reading their future with the fortune sticks (Kau Cim).
I went to take pictures at dusk, this is a magic moment where you can feel the vibrations, and I hope that you will feel them by watchings the photos…

I’ve just bought the new Sony A7RII and I am testing it in order to make a review on Youtube. Before finishing the test I’m gonna post right now the pictures that I take everyday. So I will update this post several times a week with my new pictures.
I had previously the Sony A7R, I was very satisfied of it, that’s why I was sure that I would like the New A7RII even more with the new features : contrast and phase detection autofocus, in-body stabilisation, 42 megapixels sensor, 4k video shooting ect.
I will be able of course to use all the FE lenses that I have : FE55mmF1.8 , FE35mmF2.8 , FE16-35mmF4 . the 2 first lenses don’t have the optical stabilisation which was a problem when I was taking videos. now, with the in-body stabilisation, my videos will look better and I won’t need to stabilise them in iMovie .
Let’s have a look a the pictures now!

This winter was beautiful in Paris with many sunny days and a blue sky. I was 2 week-ends in the city of lights and could get great pictures of the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, the River Seine, Hotel de Ville,the Sacré Coeur, and many other street photography shots with people.
Some of these pictures are made in HDR (High Dynamic Range) to be closer to the vision of our eyes. The sensor of the camera has a limited dynamic range : to compensate this, I take 3 times the same picture at different exposures. Then I mix them in HDR Pro Photoshop. after a few settings, that is supposed to give more details and better colors. I shot all the pictures with my Sony A7R and the Zeiss lens 35mmF2.8 .
I hope you will enjoy the pictures!
