[Daily Photo] Sunset on Plymouth Road

Share this :
This photo was shot on December 13, 5 minutes after Rush hour on Plymouth Road. The difference was that I walked across the street and faced my camera right at the sun. To avoid too strong sunlight, I hid the sun behind tree branches.

[Daily Photo] Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone

Share this :
I took this photo at Mammoth Hot Springs of Yellowstone. This place is incredibly beautiful, not only the colors of the stone, but the varietes of the terrain. The terrain on the upper part of this photo looks like slopes, and the terrain on the lower part looks like terraces(梯田).

[Daily Photo] Graffiti under the bridge

This photo was taken under the bridge of Highway US-23N across Huron River in Ann Arbor. I met a lot of people jogging or walking their pets alongside the river. I like the colors of the metal and the rust stain on the upper part of this photo.

[Daily Photo] Rush hour on Plymouth Road

Share this :
I was taking pictures along Plymouth Road, Ann Arbor. It was rush hour in the evening, and the road was crowded with cars. Everyone seemed in a hurry. The light of sunset added some exotic color into this photo, and the motion blur of the cars showed how busy the traffic was.

This is the famous Mt. Rushmore National Memorial in South Dakota. These four sculptures of heads of United States presidents from left to right are George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. Mt. Rushmore National Memorial is an easy place to visit. You don't need to walk far to see this signature view. I took this photo from the parking lot.

[Daily Photo] Federal Triangle in Washington DC

Share this :
I was in Washington DC, standing in the lawn in front of the Washington Monument. Then I looked back and found these beautiful buildings which had the same style. I just found out from the internet that these buildings formed a triangular area called Federal Triangle. The building on the center of this photo is one of the corners of the triangle.
