[Daily Photo] Bee and peony / 蜜蜂與牡丹花

Share this :
I took this photo at the Peony Garden of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I used a shutter speed of 1/2000 sec to capture this photo. To achieve this, I set the ISO up to 640. I took many photos of this busy bee collecting nectar, and this is my favorite one. It was flying toward another flower.

[Daily Photo] Beautiful tree beside the trail / 小徑旁美麗的樹木

Share this :
I found this beautiful tree while I was walking along the trail in Matthaei Botanical Gardens (in Ann Arbor, Michigan). I am really satisfied with the composition of this photo. The location of the tree fits the "Rule of Thirds"; the trail on the foreground extends to the back of the tree; the location of the red barn at the background is also great.

[Daily Photo] Antique lathe / 古董車床

Share this :
I took this photo of an old lathe (a machine tool) in Thomas Edison's Menlo Park Machine Shop in Greenfield Village (located in Dearborn, Michigan). There are many antique machines preserved in Greenfield Village and some are still working. Items in the Village such as signs are made by these old machines.
