Before the rains began, I spent a couple of lunch breaks walking around some of my favorite stomping grounds in Jhongsing Village. I made a point to shoot with my macro lens – a Micro-NIKKOR 105mm f/4 which has the build quality and weight of a tank’s gun-barrel. I wanted to shoot with this again because since purchasing a wide prime, I haven’t touched any of my other lenses.
Detroit, Michigan – We join Bumbleebee as he rushes to the aid of a small unit of paramilitary misfits led by Ted Nugent  in a doomed-to-fail Charge of the Light Brigade-style attack  against Shockwave and Barricade in front of the Joe Louis Arena .

Nature versus Nurture
I recently spent some time walking around the grounds of the National Taiwan Craft Research and Development Institute [國立臺灣工藝研究發展中心] in Nantou County’s Caotun Township. The facility is located along the mighty Provincial HWY #14 that once served as the main route to Sun Moon Lake. The traffic along this road has decreased substantially since the construction of Freeway #6 which allows tour buses to completely bypass Caotun on their way to Sun Moon Lake.
We checked into a nearby hospital at nine o’clock yesterday evening for preparations leading up to a late night Caesarean section to deliver our son. Cathy went into the delivery room at a quarter after eleven and our son Nathaniel was born at eleven thirty-nine. Currently, he’s the largest baby at the hospital’s newborn nursery at 3.95 kilograms and 54 centimeters long. Now, I can proudly call myself a father of two.
