Foreign photographers are often astounded by the hidden beauties found in the most unassuming corners of Taiwan.
An Indian engineer and part-time photographer Amit Kattal who has been in Taiwan for two years again proved that Taiwan never fails to surprise, even with the passage of time, as he recently captured a photo of a dazzling restaurant located in Keelung.
According to Kattal, he was tempted to capture the generously-lighted building not only because of its “futuristic” look but also because of its unorthodox location next to a large temple.
Kattal explained that most would expect buildings beside temples to be rather humble, and guessed that most would assume the restaurant was a hotel of some sort.
He revealed that he likes to venture into little-known areas and find architectures or sceneries that grab his attention.
To Kattal, the beauty and allure of Taiwan lies in one can never know what they will find when they explore new places.
“Many [may] have been here plenty of times but never realised how “intriguing” this place can be, so I guess there is beauty everywhere and every corner here,” Kattal said.
Kattal’s photo of the restaurant also received praise from the foreign community, with some commenting that it actually looks like a scene from a U.S. movie from the 1950s while others guessed it could be a local KTV.
