Textures in a city are intersectional, they are physical, visual, and emotional aspects that interact with each other and create a certain mood or aesthetic.

Taipei is a city I’ve been to before, which means that walking back into the city with a camera is a different experience immediately.

What do I love about Taipei? What textures in  Taipei appeals most to me? What do I remember of the city?

These photos are a remnant of those thoughts and feelings.
It was never about being able to take a spectacular photo, just maybe, an honest one.
