Photographer's Note

....there are firecrackers. taiwanese absolutely love them. the main purpose is to scare off ghosts and keep away bad luck in general, which is a great excuse to pretty much set them off anywhere, anytime ... festivals, ceremonies, weddings, new year celebrations or just to disturb a poor foreigner's afternoon nap... there's actually a festival where people throw firecrackers at each other (no kidding, layered clothing, protective gloves and helmets are advisable)

... this was some procession, i think a temple anniversary, near my home.
