Before getting into this week’s round up of all that’s good, a quick note for any photographers in Taiwan. The 2011 Dajia Mazu pilgrimage begins this weekend. This is a photographically rich opportunity for anyone interested in this vibrant aspect of Taiwan’s culture and I urge you to get down to the Mazu temple in Dajia on Saturday if you can.
As someone who comes from Australia, the sport of cricket is in my blood but probably not to the extent that it is in the Indian subcontinent. With the recent World Cup having just concluded – congratulations India on your win – The Big Picture at boston.com has put together an excellent photo series of images of fans and cricket amongst the general public in India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. If you’re a cricket lover, you’ll really enjoy this and if you aren’t familiar with the sport, it will give you some idea of the passion it can arouse in fans.
