HSR Hsinchu Series 1

This building is called Grand Vision of New Leaders, or something to that effect. I snapped some pictures before getting shooed away by a corporate lackey. This is actually part of a small sub-series. Photos I took right after leaving the HSR Hsinchu station.

The HSR Hsinchu Station is actually in Jhubei, but who cares! I just wanted to mention that when I blogged about the size of the smartsets, the guys of Zooomr took notice and changed the max number of photos in a smartset to 200. Great going guys!

High Speed Rail became operational in January in Taiwan and it’s crazy, they are selling so many tickets that trains are fully booked. Unlike the normal trains, they do not sell any standing seats, so everybody is sitting down.


I took these photos on the 13th of January 2007 with a Nikon D200 and a 18-35mm Nikkor lens. Most of these pictures were taken between 4 and 5:45 PM. Settings: ISO 1600, Long Exp NR On, High ISO NR On, Shooting Mode P. Some of the photos used Shooting Mode S and Shutter speed 1.3-2sec.


A series of pictures I took perched in between the street. A truck came rushing by and provided just enough light to capture the looming building in construction behind it. 

Another building under construction.

From another blog, I learned that the translation actually meant pick-up and ride, not kiss and ride.

One of the better views of the Hsinchu HSR station.

It’s called the Hsinchu station, but it is located in Jhubei.

Stadium lights illuminate parts of the wings of the building.
