[Daily Photo] Nuremberg Frauenkirche, Germany / 德國紐倫堡聖母教堂

Share this :
I took this photo in Nuremberg, Germany. The building, Church of Our Lady (Frauenkirche in German) is an example of brick Gothic architecture. The clock of the church is called "Männleinlaufen", a mechanical clock installed in 1509 showing the Holy Roman Emperor with the prince-electors surrounding him.

[Daily Photo] Inside the Henry Ford Museum / 亨利福特博物館內

Share this :
This photo was taken inside the Henry Ford Museum (in Dearborn, Michigan). Seeing the exhibition inside is like seeing the whole of automotive history. I chose a small aperture (F/8.0) which not only helped me to get the large depth of field, but also created the cool "star burst" effect to the light source. The drawback is, in this circumstance, the shutter speed will be very slow. Therefore, I suggest using a tripod to prevent blurring.

[Daily Photo] Sunset on a small pond on North Campus / 夕陽與小池塘

Share this :
This photo was taken on North Campus of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I planned to take some sunset photos that day, so I went to the School of Music at 8:00 pm. This was the first spot on my schedule. In the foreground is a small pond with beautiful reflections from the sky and the shore. The building in the background is Earl. V. Moor Building, whose appearance is designed to look like piano keys.

[Daily Photo] Beautiful trail on Ford Lake / 通往湖中的步道

Share this :
This photo was taken at North Bay Park in Ypsilanti, Michigan. The park has a very long, narrow trail leading into Ford Lake. The view from the trail is magnificent. I can't wait  until winter to see the whole lake surface frozen.
By the way, I met a photographer in this park. He was carrying binoculars and a Nikon camera with a really huge 500 mm telephoto lens. I had a brief chat with him. He was taking photos of birds, and he told me what kind of birds I could find in the park. It was my first time that I met another photographer in Michigan.
