Every time I make up my mind to organize my traveling photos into an album and share it I stare at the number of photographs to be screened and give up before I even begin.

I wouldn’t call myself a photographer.

Photo taking is my way of recording things I want to remember for my art – my writing.

When traveling in Taiwan earlier this summer I was really drawn to the way an environment is made up of layers upon layers.

These layers interact with each other to create the landscapes around us.

To me, these layers have moods and affectations, and upon encountering them I want to remember their particular sensations.

They inspire me to write things.

So I’ve compiled a few photographs from each location I visited just to share the scenes I thought most lovely.
