Having lunch one day in Hyde Park when I saw “Toothy Dancer” getting up and dancing to a busker like nobody’s watching for a good 30 minutes or so. He was having an absolute blast and it didn’t matter whether or not there were people walking past poking fun at how he was dancing or that he was singing along to some of the tunes. He looked happier than everyone else around him. (edit: I’ve uploaded a video of him in action to YouTube – see it here)
Bit shitty about missing the focus of the girl jumping in the last photo but what can you do? I’ll try to be better prepared next time!

“The thin island of Cijin is a very popular day trip from Kaohsiung. Just a quick ferry ride from the Kaohsiung harbor and you’re right near the bustling seafood street, where you might just find the “best seafood” in all of Kaohsiung or Taiwan. We did not. It wasn’t terrible or anything, just not as amazing as some of the other places we’d eaten so far. And nowhere near the deliciousness that is the Temple Street Night Market in Kowloon Hong Kong. Best ever if you ask me.
However, the area does reek of photogenic. From the local fishermen, excited tourists, various vendors and roaming packs of wild dogs, the place is a photographer’s delight. Not to mention the amazing Matsu Temple (Tianhou Temple at Cihou). Especially once the daylight went away. I might just do a whole post on the photos I shot of that thing! For now here’s some of my faves from the day.

In addition to seeing the great Louise Bourgeois retrospective, we wandered downstairs and caught a very cool exhibit – Strange Bodies: Figurative Works from the Hirshhorn Collection.
One of the most fascinating pieces was the Big Man – an incredibly detailed sculpture that sat in a corner, almost seven feet tall. It was incredibly compelling, to the point where we got so close… we actually set off the alarms… Bad form.These photos were taken with a point & shoot, so the quality is not amazing. But still worth a look! “

kateosan writes, “Willy Verginer takes the concept of wood carvings and flips it around, shakes it up a little, does a bit of a dance with it then presents it like no one’s ever seen before.
His entire portfolio is centered around these figures – part creepy, part really cool – all of which are carved from wood and are pretty much life-size.
Playing with the elements of composition and colour, Verginer arranges his characters in the most interesting of situations. Each is broken down into very clear sections of monotone colour, with so much texture that we would totally support at Night at the Art Gallery-type scenario.
Based in Italy, Verginer has exhibited his work all over the world. He’s also won a bunch of awards but his website is mainly in Italian so for the time being you’ll just have to give in to the power that is Verginer and get totally freaked out by his incredible life-size creations.
OK phew, I think I side-stepped any kind of willy / wood showdown.”
