A small and lovely city north of Taipei, Tamsui (meaning fresh water) was a fisherman’s city, a city where my mother was born. In my childhood, Tamsui is a distant place; today it is only 40 minutes by MRT – Metro Taipei.
Sunset in Tamsui has been praised as one of the eight magnificent views of Taiwan but somehow I have never photographed before.
On a recent visit to my teacher and mentor, Ko Sichi 柯錫杰 and his beautiful dancer wife Jessie Fan 樊潔兮 to their beautiful hideaway home at a foothill of Tamsui, on the balcony, I finally got the chance.
