Candid street shots from Taipei

While I was in Taiwan I did a little candid street photography of the people of Taipei.  They fascinated me because I knew very little about the culture or history there.  They struck me as clearly coming from Chinese origins but being extremely modern.  Before visiting Taiwan I always kind of categorized "Taiwanese" with "Chinese" in my head, but they really are their own country and their own people. 

Also, I love black and white but am fairly disenchanted with the flatness of B&W images that are derived from digital color images, so I’ve ordered a 35mm film SLR.  I’ve never shot film before other than using a point-n-shoot for completely uncontrolled photos, so this should be a photography growing experience. I want to shoot some B&W film for a while …
