Taipei’s Temples and Shrines

Taipei has a lot to offer the the street shooter.  Modern architecture, city parks, night-life and one of my favorite scenes, any of the dozens of temples that dot the city.  You can’t go more than a few minutes in any direction no matter where you are in the city without finding a temple.  They may not be immediately visible, but they are there.  Some only the size of a closet and others that take up a full city block.  There are fewer shrines around the city, but still enough to start a small collection.

Let this be the first installment of an ongoing collection.
