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。

Hengchuen Sunset 恆春落日

After days of doing nothing but eating, drinking and fooling around during the long CNY vacation, I finally decided to give it a try today.

Not because I was lazy or lacking enthusiasm, I was in fact terrified by the horrific traffic and crowds everywhere. I sure would not want to be caught up in some gridlock on the freeway. Also I am somewhat crowd phobic. I really hate to see people walking around on the shooting site.

Any today, the last day of the CNY vacation, I rolled southward bound as usual in some faint hope of coming across anything spectacular because the sky was faceless in Tainan when I set out and it got even worse on the way down south.

Yet as I have always believe in, Hengchuen Peninsula is magical. The closer I got to my destination, the more spectacular the sky turned. As you can see here, this is the first shot I took after arriving.

One more thing: I had the pleasure to witness the lowest tide level in the setting. I wonder if it is the so-called "spring low tide"? Anyway, how lucky I was!!!

Stable at sunset 向晚馬廄 (1)

很美的光線吧!

遺憾的是它應該已經被夷為平地了。多麼浪費傳統及文化遺產啊!

顢頇的官僚!

Magnificent lighting!

What a shame that it is already torn down!! What a waste of traditional and cultural heritage!!

Muddleheaded bureaucrats!!

Stable at sunset 向晚馬廄

安平騎馬場這時應該已經搬完家了,經過二十一年的歲月,政府一聲令下,幾天就得搬光,真不近人情。原因應該是為了財團開發做準備,好不現實呀!

無能的政府不知充分利用這有悠久歷史、充滿懷舊風味的舊馬場,做人文層面的開發利用,竟然就這樣把他趕走,真的是無能、膚淺、向財團靠攏到了極致。

不曉得將來財團開發時,那高聳濃密的木麻黃林會不會遭殃?真令人擔心。

The stable should have finished moving to the new location at this point.

After over 21 years in Tainan, the stable is forced to move and tear down everything that was built bit by bit over the long stretch of time, 21 years, just because the government demands so for the sake and convenience of the future development by some big business.

The inept  government rejected the suggestion that the historical and nostalgic stable be embellished in order to be promoted and marketed on its humane and cultural basis. The government chose to just kick away the stable with only one intention in mind - to open the door to the big company.  I am still immensely exasperated with its incompetence, shallowness and overt leaning toward the conglomerate even though I have the exact picture of what bureaucracy is.

This case once again proves my point - any place that is chosen and developed by the government is doomed to inevitable complete failure!!!
