Diane, Summer 2008

I took this photo of Diane in the summer of 2008 in Taiwan at 野柳 (Yehliu) with my Canon SD800 (thanks Uncle Eric!). 

Since my mom loves national parks and scenic landscapes, our family vacations tend to involve a lot of roadtrips to the middle of nowhere (because those types of places have the best scenery). My sister and I were not big fans of those vacations, but we learned to enjoy those trips more once we decided to treat them as photoshoot opportunities. Whenever we stopped at a scenic location, I'd point at a spot and my sister would obligingly begin modeling for me. It helps that she's pretty and doesn't need too much direction from me, although she says I should tell her what to do more often.

So yes, I have a lot of photos of Diane with beautiful landscapes as backdrop. I'll be sharing more of them on my blog. Can't wait until I can hang out with my sister again and take more photos!

with love,


  1. i thought it was a picture of YOU, linda! XD

  2. So did I. I think it's because one main distinction between you two is the angularity of the face (Linda, you have a more angular face than Diane). The lighting and the hair in the picture hide Diane's lower facial features, making her appear more similar to you.

    Actually, the real reason you two look similar is because you're both beautiful. AND don't try asking me "so who is prettier?" because you already know the answer to that question.

    Nice landscape. I'm curious about those strange lumps of dirt behind Diane. They look like dirt thumbs.

  3. LOL i wish i were that good at modeling! plus i thought the title was pretty clear XD

  4. Hmmm... good thing I made it clear then. And don't worry, I'm never tempted to ask a question like that XD

    Yeah, the Yehliu Geopark is really cool - link here:

    Also, according to the Wikipedia article I linked to in the post, those rocks are called hoodoo stones:

    Pretty cool, huh?
