Taipei, A Street View

A street view of Taipei out of our bus window as we travelled along. This part of town looked a little old and also busy.

A Signs and Artwork

How is this for a sign? Found on a street in Taipei, Taiwan, as we travelled on the tour bus to our next destination. I guess it means that motor bikes can either park at 90 degrees or parallel to the curb.

There is also some interesting artwork in the shop front windows, though it is hard to decipher what it actually is. The pic was taken through the bus window as we travelled along, and that artwork is behind another layer of glass, so it is a little hard to see. I would have liked to have a close look though.

Wood Patterns

This wooden panel was also in the foyer of the National Palace Museum in Taipei. I am sure you would all agree with me that is is very Chinese looking. It was somewhere near the floor from memory, but that's all I can remember. It's still a nice pattern to try to interpret into stitch.

Glass Pattern

This is a close up now of the pattern in the glass of the door at the National Palace Museum. Are they little bones do you think? Interesting though, and I would love to execute it in blackwork some time.

This door was in the foyer of the National Palace Museum. A beautiful door that was full of pattern. Patterns that I could include in my needlework somewhere. It's screaming blackwork.

A Memorial

This memorial was in the foyer of the National palace Museum. There were signs and notices as to who this was and what it was all about, but with all the people around and being short on time, I was very grateful for getting this pic. It would be nice to know though.
