“外行看热闹,内行看门道” Nov 13, 2015

Yueyin,

昨天晚上看了 Making North America 节目的第二部分: Life, 这才懂得原始时代美国中部却是一片汪洋大海。后来 the Pacific Plate pushed under the North American Plate, 使地壳隆起,形成山脉 (The Rocky Mountains). 如此解释,The Grand Canyon 雄伟奇特地势的形成对我来说就比较容易理解了。

Steve,

谢谢你提供这些资料和记录片!我还没来得及全部看完这些记录片,但已经很受启发。这些记录片充分利用高科技,给我留下深刻印象。以前我去大峡谷游览时,也想起过它是如何形成的问题,但从未深入探讨过。不过我每次去,这大自然的鬼斧神工总会让我惊叹不已。真所谓“外行看热闹,内行看门道”。

金门一日游 Nov 12, 2016

10月27日,我与我的大学同学一行几十人乘船登上了金门岛。当年上大学时,报纸和新闻广播中常说,“春节期间对金门停止炮击3天,以示关怀”。所以,我们是怀着一种非常特殊的心情登上金门岛的。

这是金门的地标性建筑莒光楼。在天气晴朗且无雾霾的日子里,在莒光楼上可看见厦门。那天天气晴朗,但我们却看不见对岸。莒光楼的命名源于 “毋忘在莒”的典故

10月27日,我与我的大学同学一行几十人乘船登上了金门岛。当年上大学时,报纸和新闻广播中常说,“春节期间对金门停止炮击3天,以示关怀”。所以,我们是怀着一种非常特殊的心情登上金门岛的。

这是金门的地标性建筑莒光楼。在天气晴朗且无雾霾的日子里,在莒光楼上可看见厦门。那天天气晴朗,但我们却看不见对岸。莒光楼的命名源于 “毋忘在莒”的典故。这一典故,在大陆鲜为人知,但在台湾却家喻户晓。



也许会令人感到意外的是,给“莒光楼”题字的不是台湾最高领袖或金门地区最高长官,而是一位16岁在江西被强征入伍的年轻士兵(题字时约22岁)。这笔好毛笔字,连某少将、“豆瓣酱”都望尘莫及!



这是“成功海防坑道”附近的海滩。此情此景,令我不禁想起1949年的金门战役(古宁头战役)。但我同学中,鲜有人了解此役的真相。



金门的一大特产是“金门钢刀”(菜刀)。据说当年炮击金门所用的炮弹,系用前苏联生产的高级合金钢制成。金门工匠废物利用,用炮弹皮制成十分锋利耐用的金门钢刀。据导游说,金门老百姓对前往金门的大陆游客说,“你们以前送炮弹给我们,现在我们用炮弹皮制成金门菜刀还给你们”。我想,这也可算是“化干戈为玉帛”吧,当然也可理解为对炮击金门的一种讽刺。无论如何,愿海峡两岸的炎黄子孙永远不再兄弟相残!

这是厦门附近大嶝岛上当年炮击金门的大炮。在大嶝岛上可清楚地看见金门岛(最短距离2公里)。由于处于战争阴影之下,几十年来金门仍很落后,与对岸飞速发展的厦门不可同日而语。



金门的另一特产是高粱酒。这个巨型高粱酒瓶的底座其实是一座已经废弃的碉堡。

Cherry Blossoms Mar 26, 2017

Yueyin,

Thanks for sharing the wonderful pictures you took of the National Mall area. By the looks of it, the recent powerful Nor'easter that swept through the Mid-Atlantic region didn't damage the spectacular views in anyway. It's great that you and your wife were able to enjoy your D.C. vacation.

Here's a nice picture published by CNN of the springtime cherry blossoms at Wuhan University. The scenery would have been equally breathtaking if it weren't for the throngs of visitors.

Cherry blossoms Mar 27, 2017

Steve,

Thank you! The situation is not too bad. According to this Cherry Blossom Watch Update, only about 50% of the blossoms were damaged in the snowstorm:

Yes, the cherry blossoms at Wuhan University were also breathtaking.

果然,正如预报那样,上周末 "the cherry blossoms reached peak bloom"。这是3月28日早晨 Tidal Basin 湖边的景象。Tidal Basin 是首都华盛顿地区欣赏樱花的最佳去处。其实,湖对岸樱花更为壮观,但那里停车不便。上周末下了几场大雨,风也不小,所以🌸花落了不少。不过,游人的兴致却丝毫未减。当然,远远不及武汉大学那里游人如织。

National Mall, Washington, D.C. Apr 16, 2017

华盛顿哥伦比亚特区是美国的政治文化中心。The National Mall 则是 Washington, D.C. 的中心。如果你想仔细参观那里的所有博物馆、纪念馆、美术馆、公园,以及白宫和国会大厦,至少得花一星期时间;而且进白宫和国会大厦参观,需要在很久之前就事先预约。二十多年来,我曾多次去过 the National Mall,但还是没能参观完所有的景点。

华盛顿哥伦比亚特区是美国的政治文化中心。The National Mall 则是 Washington, D.C. 的中心。如果你想仔细参观那里的所有博物馆、纪念馆、美术馆、公园,以及白宫和国会大厦,至少得花一星期时间;而且进白宫和国会大厦参观,需要在很久之前就事先预约。二十多年来,我曾多次去过 the National Mall,但还是没能参观完所有的景点。



尽管 the National Mall 的许多景点彼此相隔不远,但一天步行参观下来,也会让你累得够呛。虽然我在机场租了一星期汽车,但我马上发现在 the National Mall 那里很难找到停车机会,尤其是在樱花节期间。最经济有效的交通工具是公共汽车和地铁,尤其是 The DC Circulator Bus National Mall Route。三年前我去 D.C. 时,还没有这条线路:

当年的北京市委书记彭真曾站在天安门城楼上对著名建筑学家、北京市副市长梁思成说:“毛主席说,将来从这里望过去,要看到处处都是烟囱!”梁思成大吃一惊,他表示,北京是古代文化建筑集中的城市,不应该发展工业。最好像华盛顿那样,成为政治文化中心。

这才一个烟窗 Apr 16, 2017

这可不是 Washington Monument,而是去年11月我在北京二环路上看到的一个烟窗,不过当时它没冒烟:

如果从天安门城楼上望过去,看到处处都是冒烟的烟囱,北京将会是什么样子?

这是离北京市约200公里的河北省迁安市:

期待你的摄影新作 Aug 3, 2017

沈兄:

我只是借你这块宝地,随便抒发一些感想而已。希望你见到我的随便涂鸦不要见笑。自你隐去之后,就再也看不到你的摄影佳作。实为一件憾事。希望你今后能多贴些你的新作供大家欣赏、学习。

看了这些触目惊心的新闻报道和照片,真让人心窄、心痛!有多少人的美丽家园付之一炬,有多少人流离失所!甚至还有人失去了宝贵的生命!希望加州野火能早日被彻底扑灭。

难得雅兴 Jan 9, 2018

“大都会”里的中国味

PK 我兄,

难得雅兴。我先猜一猜两张照片中的瓷器:一元一明。

IMG_5064 (1)
上面这张里的梅瓶和缠枝牡丹大盆应该就是著名的“元青花”;而下面的是明代景德镇的粉彩,其中黄釉碗碟,是弘治年间的东西。

IMG_5067
这些文物像我等一样,漂洋过海来到异国他乡,每件后面都有不寻常的故事。所幸的是它们幸存下来了。下面这幅大画原来是山西洪洞县广胜寺的《药师佛经变图》。八百多年的元代壁画,历经无数战乱和天灾,所剩不多,像这样的精品更是稀世之宝。可惜“药师佛”和他的弟子们一起被一个酒肉和尚卖掉了(换来一千多大洋),时在军阀混战期间大约1928-30。

IMG_5050
现在看到的这幅画是被切成一片片的《药师佛壁画》下壁后堆成几箱子,运到了美国再重新拼凑起来的。瘦了一次身了。大约只是原来的百分之八九十。

尽管瘦了身,总比没了身好。原来它的对壁是一幅很精彩的《善财童子五十三参》,1949年时已经断壁残垣,如今仅剩下十几个半身人像。要看《善财童子五十三参》的,请到杭州灵隐寺如来佛背面有泥塑群雕。要看真正的元代壁画,像样的只有山西运城永乐宫还有。
