Liberty Square (自由廣場)

Saturday, 21 January 2017

On our third day in Taiwan, we went to do more sightseeing at Liberty Square (自由廣場), the country's biggest public plaza covering over 240,000m² in size. Surrounded by the National Theatre (國家戲劇院) to the south, National Concert Hall (國家音樂廳) to the north, and the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall (中正紀念堂) to the east, Liberty Square was one of my most favourite attractions of the city due to it's beautiful landscape. Although it's not our first time in the square, I barely have any memories of our time there back in 2010 except for a few photographs. So I'm glad we really made the most of it this time round :)

As much as we tried to take photos infront of each landmark, the wind did not give way and took us many tries to get a proper shot! (Heh.) There weren't many people when we went (as you can see in the photos), so like Gwanghwamun Square in South Korea, it was such a peaceful place to chill. We even sat down on the concrete ledges for a good 15 minutes and admired or surrounding before recording some videos in the middle of the square.

Thank you to the nice gentlemen who gladly took this photo of us. But seriously, I have so much love for my newest lens: the M.ZUIKO Digital 17mm f/1.8! I bought 2 lens with me to Taiwan and Hong Kong (the other one being my 40-150mm) but ended up using the 17mm only, and the quality of my photos on the trip have been amazing—unlike the ones in Seoul :(

And one last photo for the cuteness. One man was sitting on the stairs just by the Memorial Hall with his dogs in Pikachu outfits. (Talk about picking up chicks, eh? So many girls went to take photos!)
