Shoot Thirteen - Vermont
Moscow - that large complex was, of course, the Kremlin! Checking in were Mariann, Carol (with Moscow pix), Milt, Michelle, Peyton, Elaine, Mike and Doris.
"Fisher RR Bridge"
Shoot #13 finds me in Vermont for another annual activity - time share. For the past thirty years we have been making the drive to Stowe, VT and the Von Trapp properties.
Each year I try to find something around the area of great interest. Last year I did shoot about a dozen covered bridges. This year I returned to Fisher RR Bridge with my fisheye lens for some fun. I shot a few dozen images of this covered bridge - I changed my viewpoint, used both portrait and landscape orientation, and went in fairly tight. I have a few that I do like. This one was processed with HDR, Here is an interior shot in B&W.
Better get out the atlas as this year I will be featuring some of the more famous cities of the world! Here are some interesting facts about one of them. Just what city would I be visiting?
this city’s name
translates into “Fragrant Harbour"
or "Incense Harbour”
the city boasts the second
largest number of high rises of any city in the world
after the First Opium War (1839–42), it became a British Colony
later occupied by Japan during World War IIuntil British control resumed in 1945.
It is well
known for its multitude of theme parks like Ocean
Park, a Disneyland, and Lai Chi Kokamusement park.
The city is
very famous for its shopping malls and thus gets its name “shopper’s paradise”
from them. One can get anything and everything from clothes and cosmetics to
toys and electronic gadgets in places like Stanley
Market, Jade Market, Ladies’ Market, Temple Street Night Market, and many
famous tourist attraction is Victoria
Peak, which provides a bird’s eye view of the harbor and the whole city.
hint: In the early 1980s, negotiations
between the United Kingdom and China resulted in the 1984 Sino-British Joint Declaration, which
paved way for the transfer of this city's control in 1997.
