    Default Taiwan - some snap shots of my trip....

    Thought of sharing some pics I took during a recent trip to Taiwan. These were taken using a Yashica T Zoom and scanned using Minolta Dimage Dual Scan III.... would post more shots from the S602Z if there are any interest....

    Actually been to 5 countries in the space of 2 months.... very tiring and 2 of the long-haul trips were really unplanned and last minute.

    These were all shot using slide film.... had experiemented with quite a few, Elite Chrome Extra Color, Sensia 100, Provia 100F....

    Thanks for the comments

    I sent my slides to MS Color for development. Costs $4.80 without mounting and $8 with mounting. They sent it to the Fuji Lab and the turnaround time is 2-3 days. I understand that RGB charges the same (cheaper for some clubs?) and the turnaround time is much faster (several hours).

    Nice shots there, but can do with a bit of unsharp masking.

    RGB charges $4.80 for slide processing, $4.08 for photo club members. And now they have 4% GST, so it cost a few cents more now. Turn around time about 3-4 hours. Hate their opening hours - they close at 7pm. Too early.

    Thanks Glad you like the pics I went to quite a number of cities....except Tainan. The weather was quite nice most of the time... except for the last night in Taipei when it rained.
