Rainy Afternoon – Ricoh GR w/ Wide Angle Adapter

It’s been a while since I headed downtown. I usually make a trip down there for a photo walk or some tech shopping, but life has been getting in the way lately. Finally, there were too many little errands stacked up that needed to be taken care of and I broke out the Ricoh, threw on the wide angle conversion lens and headed out on the scooter. By the way, A scooter is an interesting way to get around anywhere, but in Taipei it’s something really special. More about that later.

First stop, computer alley. I have a pair of Westone 4s that have been acting up and I needed someone to take a listen to them.

Of course when the technician listened to them they worked perfect and didn’t have any of the hissing sound I heard earlier this summer. (Ricoh GR with 21mm Wide Angle Adaptor)

This evening’s photos were taken with the trusty little GR. That camera is just so easy to throw around your neck, in a jacket pocket or have it around your wrist before heading out the door. Today it was wet, but I typically mind shooting in a light rain. Colors are more vibrant, the scenes have better contrast and the reflections can add a lot to a street scene.

Most of the images here were shot DNG + Jpeg. The jpegs were taken with a slightly modified Positive Film preset.

It's a tight squeeze sometimes. Scooting in Taipei always keeps you o n your toes.

Love the colorful urban art.

I’ve seen this wall several times and always stop to admire it and every time I do I seem to find something new.  (Ricoh GR with 21mm Wide Angle Adaptor)

Some of my fixed gear rides end up at this coffee house. Easy parking for the bike, good coffee and soft comfy seats.
