A Flickr Favorite – Taipei 101 by yameme

This is a very cool shot of Taipei 101 taken in the evening by Flickr user yameme. I found this shot while looking at picture of Taiwan on Flickr (I have been their once and enjoyed my time there) and was amazed by the color and vibrancy shown. The body of work from yameme also has many other shots from Taipei, Taiwan and east Asia which are all excellent. Check out his (or her) Flickr photostream for more.
