Life is stressful for urban people. To have a break on the weekend in the park,
 to have a breath of fresh air is very satisfying.

I came to Tuen Mun Park in Hong Kong for a walk and to take pictures.
The park is very large, and the greenness of the scenery is very comforting.

There are areas for people to sing and dance. I found it very interesting!
Many families go to the park to play and rest.

I hope that you will get a feel for the warm inviting atmosphere of leisure!


對於生活緊張的都市人來說, 能夠忙裡偷閒在週末到
公園吸一口新鮮空氣, 已經是非常的滿足。

這次到了香港屯門公園散步和拍照,
這個公園十分之大, 綠油油的景色令人很舒服。

這裡有部分區域是給市民唱歌和跳舞之用, 非常有趣!
也有一家大小到公園玩樂和休憩的。

希望大家看到照片後都可以感染到一些歡樂休閒的氣氛吧!

Lotus flowers of Macau 澳門的荷花

41 - Comments 留言




The lotus was selected as the Macau city’s flower. It has become the symbol of Macau.

In summer, you can see many beautiful lotus flowers blooming in the parks of Macau.

The lotus therefore has become one of the major subjects in summer, for photography lovers.

These are the lotus flowers I photographed this year. I hope you enjoy them!


荷花被選定為澳門的市花。也成為了澳門的標誌。

到了夏季, 在澳門的公園都可以看到一朵朵漂亮的荷花含苞待放。

拍攝荷花也成為了一班攝影發燒友在夏天的重要活動之一。

這些都是我在今年拍到的荷花, 希望大家欣賞!

Rafael's Roma Vacation Final Episode - St. Peter’s Basilica and Vatican Square

Final Episode


St. Peter’s Basilica and Vatican Square


聖彼得大教堂和梵蒂岡廣場




St. Peter's Basilica is the largest Church all over the world. We came here and took some shots of the
 Vatican on the first day of our Bus tour but we only got to see the Vatican Museums on the following
 Wednesday. We came to St. Peter’s Basilica after visiting the museums, in my opinion, the interiors,
 are the most beautiful I’ve ever seen! The building is enormous, and all the statues are huge -
some of them are near 10 meters tall! One of the most important statue of Michelangelo is exhibited
here on the right of the entrance, is the Santa Maria with Jesus called “The Pieta”, a work made by
 Michelangelo when he was only 24 years old (1499). It is definitely a ‘must see’ if you ever visit Rome.


聖彼得大教堂是世界最大的教堂。我們坐觀光巴士的第一天來過這裡,
在梵蒂岡拍了一些照,但我們只在下週三才來看到梵蒂岡博物館。
參觀博物館後,在我看來到聖彼得大教堂,它的室內設計,是我見過最美麗的!
建築物是巨大的,所有的雕像也是巨大的 - 其中有些更接近10米高!
其中最重要的雕像是米開朗基羅在這裡的右面入口展出,是聖瑪麗亞與耶穌被稱為
“The Pieta”,是米開朗基羅在他只有24歲時的名作(1499年)。
如果你會到訪羅馬這肯定是'必須要看'的。

Part III




This is by far the biggest museum I have ever been to! I couldn’t see everything inside.
I just visited the displays I really wanted to see and I was very keen to see Raphael (Rafael)
and Michelangelo’s works and of course the famous Sistine Chapel. I just couldn’t get to the final
 section fast enough! It took some while to get to the Last Judgment and the Genesis but… I finally made it!

The room was dark and there were so many people standing there. This room is very special and
 everyone there was supposed to be silent and you weren’t allowed to take pictures, but, people
 were talking, sitting and using flashes when taking pictures, so I took some pictures too, although
 without a flash. Then, there was an announcement telling people to keep quiet and to stop taking
pictures and by this time I was really tired but it was certainly one of the best things I did in Rome.
 I was very satisfied with my trip there.



這是迄今為止我去過最大的博物館!我沒法看完裡面的一切。我只能參觀了我真
的很想看的展品,我非常渴望看到拉斐爾和米開朗琪羅的作品,當然還有著名的西斯廷
教堂。我無法快速到達最後的一個部分!需花上一些時間才可看到《最後的審判》
和《創世紀》,但...我終於做到了!

房間裡一片漆黑,當時有很多人站在那裡。這個房間是非常特殊的,每個人都應該要
保持沉默,你不准拍照,但是,人們在談論,坐著和使用閃光燈拍照,我也拍了
一些照片,然而沒有閃光的。然後,有一個公告,告訴人們保持安靜,並停止拍照,
這時候我真的累了,但它肯定是我在羅馬做了最好的事。我很滿意我在那裡的旅行。

The Vatican Museums

梵蒂岡博物館

Part II




The Vatican Museums trace their origin to one marble sculpture, purchased 500 years ago.
The sculpture of Laocoön, the priest who, according to Greek mythology, tried to convince the people
 of ancient Troy not to accept the Greeks' "gift" of a hollow horse, was discovered 14 January 1506,
 in a vineyard near the basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome. Pope Julius II sent Giuliano da Sangallo
 and Michelangelo Buonarroti, who were working at the Vatican, to examine the discovery.
On their recommendation, the pope immediately purchased the sculpture from the vineyard owner.
The pope put the sculpture of Laocoön and his sons in the grips of a sea serpent on public
display at the Vatican exactly one month after its discovery.

The Museums celebrated their 500th anniversary in October 2006 by permanently
opening the excavations of a Vatican Hill necropolis to the public.

梵蒂岡博物館的起源可以追溯到500年前購買的一座大理石雕像。這座名為拉奧孔與
兒子們的雕像於1506年1月14日在聖母大殿附近的一個葡萄園裡發掘出來。
教皇儒略二世派朱利亞諾•達•桑迦洛(Giuliano da Sangallo)和米開朗琪羅去查看發掘成果。
在他們的推薦下,教皇當機立斷從葡萄園主那裡買下了雕像。在發掘出雕像整一個月後,
教皇就在梵蒂岡向公眾進行了展示。

2006年10月梵蒂岡博物館慶祝建館500周年之際,
向公眾開放了梵蒂岡山丘上公墓的發掘現場。

The Vatican Museums (Italian: Musei Vaticani), in Viale Vaticano in Rome, inside the Vatican City,
are among the greatest museums in the world, since they display works from the immense
 collection built up by the Roman Catholic Church throughout the centuries.

Pope Julius II founded the museums in the 16th century. The Sistine Chapel and the Stanze
della Segnatura decorated by Raphael are on the visitor route through the Vatican Museums.

(Information from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vatican_Museums)



梵蒂岡博物館(意大利語:Musei Vaticani)位於梵蒂岡城內,由羅馬梵蒂岡大道
(Viale Vaticano)可達。梵蒂岡博物館是世界上最偉大的博物館之一,
其中的藏品是多個世紀以來羅馬天主教會收集、積累的成果。

16世紀時,教皇儒略二世創建了博物館。遊客在遊覽梵蒂岡博物館時會經過由
拉斐爾裝飾的西斯廷禮拜堂和拉斐爾房間(Stanze di Raffaello)。

Because of work, last Friday, I had to attend an exhibition with two of my work colleagues.
There were many displays there and these are the most interesting ones I photographed that day.

摩羅上街 Upper Lascar Row

22 - Comments 留言





在永利街和樓梯街之下還有一條很有特色的小街名為摩羅上街,

是這次去永利街的最大發現, 這條街有很多擺賣中式紀念品和陶瓷製品的商店和攤位。

如果喜歡攝影的朋友一定對這些色彩繽紛的精品十分喜愛, 因為可以可拍攝到不錯的效果,

而且這裡遊人不多, 還可以看到商店主人和老街坊的人生百態, 真是一條直得參觀的街道。

下次再來這裡, 除了拍照之外, 一定要買一些有趣的紀念品!
 
特別要說的就是Canon EOS 5D Mark II 配合Canon EF 135mm f/2.0 L USM 定焦鏡頭的
 
效果實在令我有好大的驚喜! 不論色彩, 銳利度和散景都達至最高水準, 真的很滿意!
 
 
Under the Wing Lee Street and Ladder Street is a very characteristic street called Upper Lascar Row,

It was the biggest discorver when we went to Wing Lee Street. This street has a lots

 of Chinese souvenirs and ceramics in the shops and the stalls. If you like to shooting some photos,

these colorful handicrafts can give you a very nice effect. Moreover haven' t many tourists here,

you can also see the routine life of the store owners and the old neighbors, is really worth to visit this street.

If I come here again, besides to taking pictures, must buy some interesting souvenirs!
 
Particularly want to say that the images qualities of Canon EOS 5D Mark II with
 
Canon EF 135mm f/2.0 L USM prime lens are superb, it is indeed a big surprise!
 
Regardless of colors, sharpness and bokeh, both are reached the highest level, I am really very satisfied!
