Things don't get much greasier or less healthy than night market food in Taipei. Often it is delicious, although this isn't a surprise to anyone. The pig's knuckles though are not a favorite of mine. This was taken at the night market close to Longshan Temple, although the same dish can be found at any of the many night markets throughout the island.
Thinking about it, three of my last four posts have had kind of a similar theme to them; not intentional on this one, but I can't help but wonder what Freud would have to say.

I like those two plans, first with food and the second with the girl in the blur background. Same with the colors, warm for the first cold for the second.
It's a good composition using the focus-unfocus.

Darren: yeah, I'll take this shallow DOF which underscores what this pic is really about anyway. Nice chinese 'street-fare' scene. regards, c

Ca a pas l'air super appétissant...enfin c'est mon avis :)
Par contre je trouve judicieux comme tu as cadré ca. La couleur pète bien et cette cuisinière est dans une très bonne dof avec une position des mains qui la montre en plein travail.

Nice work, Darren, warm colors and really effectic use of bokeh with that stirling 31mm f1.8 - you are using top notch glass these days and it shows.
Nothing to add except that this one works very well indeed.

Nice focus on the pic. These are very popular in South Korea too. Anyhow very sharp where it need to be and good color. Well done.

Well. I'll think I'll pass on the pig trotters thanks! What's next on your photo list? Chicken feet?!?!
I'm enjoying the nice bokeh in your recent pics Darren, and the colours...they're so vibrant and vivd.
