Because of the WordPress gathering, I hitched a ride to Changhua, which I hadn’t visited in a long time. I spent some time exploring the alleys near the train station. Fortunately, the weather allowed me to leave my umbrella behind and casually wander the streets with a camera slung over my shoulder.
I encountered a middle-aged person on the way, who watched me taking photos without immediately speaking up to stop me or questioning what I was reporting. They greeted me warmly only when I turned around after walking into a dead-end alley.
He may have realized that I was just taking random shots, and I naturally didn’t sense any malicious atmosphere. I responded with a smile and left the alley.
