Welcome to my blog, my friends!!

After being abandoned for years, my blog is eventually set up. Thanks to the new templates, it is so much easier to arrange my blog the way I want to a much more acceptable degree. Well, now it may not be exactly the best, but I am sure it will definitely be better and I shall be more willing to spend more time and efforts here.

在荒廢了幾年後,我的部落格終於搞好了;幸好有新的範本設定功能,否則恐怕不曉還會再擱上幾年呢。目前這部落格的樣子或許還不算完美,但已經比原來的殘破樣子好太多了;相信假以時日,它會漸入佳境的。我呢,應該也會多花些時間在這個屬於我的空間,跟喜歡我攝影作品的朋友們分享心情、攝影觀念及新作品。

Google、Wikipedia 與各網站,群起以行動抗議美國 SOPA / PIPA 法

此時此刻 SOPA(Stop Online Piracy Act)這個名詞應該已經不需多作介紹了吧?但如果你真的不知道,那 1 月 18 號也就是今天,應該將讓你很難忽視此法案的存在 -- 這個防堵線上盜版的法案,因為涉及干涉網路的開放與自由風氣,所以遭到 Google、Wikipedia 與其他網站群起以行動進行抗議,而其中以 Wikipedia 的關站抗議最為大眾所關注,畢竟大家報告才做到一半該站本來就是由分享精神所支持,而美國政府若是開出箝制網路言論自由的審查機制先例的話,那後果肯定將無法設想。另一方面,今天 Google 也在其搜尋首頁放上了對美國國會的喊話網頁連結與首頁圖片,提出「停止盜版,而非自由(End Piracy, Not Liberty)」訴求,這也幾乎訴說了一切。現在這波抗議行動,響應的網站與網友也已經越來越多,由此可見大家都很能了解自由的可貴,以及此事的嚴重程度。點擊最後一個引用來源可以深入了解此法案的相關整理資訊。

“You have been my friend. That in itself is a tremendous thing. I wove my webs for you because I liked you. After all, what’s a life, anyway? We’re born, we live a little while, we die. A spider’s life can’t help being something of a mess, with all this trapping and eating flies. By helping you, perhaps I was trying to lift up my life a trifle. Heaven knows anyone’s life can stand a little of that.”

~ Charlotte, “Charlotte’s Web” by E. B. White

南寮美景恐不再

南寮美景恐怕不會長存了,現在的南寮拍攝點石岸右側搭了一座醜陋的簡易鋼架作為上船之用,讓南寮成了半面觀音;圖中景色是在石岸左側拍攝的,不知何時連此處也會被搭上一座破壞景緻的不當結構物。

如果網路上有高雄市政府的人,希望您如果看到這訊息,能夠管管那些海釣船的擁有人,不要讓他們隨意搭建未經規劃許可的結構物,破壞南寮具有最美視野的攝點。 經營觀光首先需要優美的自然美景,而維護這些美景是需要用心,需要專業的。

Now, Updating the Vault!


After days of updating the library, now my Aperture is updating the vault at a snail's pace, which has been going on for more than ONE day and maybe will continue for another day!

I cannot do anything with my images at all! UNBELIEVABLE!!!

MY COMPUTER CRASHED!!

My compter crashed the other day and it caused my Aperture to start a long self-repairing and then a even longer library re-updating after the repair - about 200K images per day and accordingly I assume it is going to take another 5 days to finish updating the whole library.

I love Apple but they should do something to improve this CRAZY problem.

Chigu in B+W 1

“We have stayed in ignorance for many reasons; important among them is the denial of climate change in the US where governments have failed to give their climate scientists the support they needed. The Green lobbies, which should have given priority to global warming, seem more concerned about threats to people than with threats to the Earth, not noticing that we are part of the Earth and wholly dependent upon its well being. It may take a disaster worse than last summer’s European deaths to wake us up.

Opposition to nuclear energy is based on irrational fear fed by Hollywood-style fiction, the Green lobbies and the media. These fears are unjustified, and nuclear energy from its start in 1952 has proved to be the safest of all energy sources. We must stop fretting over the minute statistical risks of cancer from chemicals or radiation. Nearly one third of us will die of cancer anyway, mainly because we breathe air laden with that all pervasive carcinogen, oxygen. If we fail to concentrate our minds on the real danger, which is global warming, we may die even sooner, as did more than 20,000 unfortunates from overheating in Europe last summer.”

— James Lovelock, “Nuclear power is the only green solution”

Finally done!!!
