street festival

I was just about to arrive home, when the deafening sound of firecrackers exploded.

I realised there was a huge procession walking slowly down my neighbourhood market - people in costume, painted faces, and musicians.

I ran home and grabbed my new camera to take some pix...

It was a cool mix of explosive sound and colours...the procession snaked its way out of the market, onto one of Taipei's busiest main streets.

I love Taiwan's mix of modern and traditional...
