Photographs and Information about Taiwan's Culture, Nature and People by Rich Matheson

Jinluan (金鑾) Temple Festival — 3

Palanquin bearing the second Mazu. These bearers were beautiful, but — before the man on the right broke into a smile — a touch intimidating as well. I shot this with an old nikkor 24mm f2 lens so I was pretty close, down at their feet, and I asked if I could take the picture. The man on the left pretty much ignored me after a slight nod but the man on the right broke into a smile, completely transforming his face. It wasn’t the photo I had envisioned but I really like it.
