鹿港看到貓-2 ;Seeing cats at LuKang -2

小芥:
Michico :
8月26號,我去鹿港。除了古蹟之外,就是想要到這個古老的地方拍拍貓。大家可以從第一篇開始看。一開始看到了小咩咩一號二號,讓我很開心,其實只要有一隻,我就沒有白來了。
Aug 26th, I went to LuKang, it places at Middle of Taiwan, and It's a very old town. You can see from the 1st chap. The reason I went there it's because I have a summer break this week, I want to find cats in this old town, and see the historic spots.
只有我一個人獨自前來,該怎麼證明呢?大概也只有用這個反射吧,哈哈。
I came alone, how to prove I really come, only by the mirrow reflection, hahaha~~
古樸的小鎮風情,真的很容易就可以明白,為何總是會有貓咪走來走去的了。這裡這麼安靜,空氣這麼新鮮,貓咪怎麼會不喜歡呢?
When I came here I can really understand why cats love here, because it's really quiet, and have fresh air. Lukang is simple and unsophisticated.
這個是現代的石敢當,古時的石敢當是拿來驅邪振煞的。
This stones with art are very beautiful.
處處都有很詩情畫意的風情。一個轉角,一個回頭,都可以看見不同的古巷風情。
Everywhere has very beautiful view, a corner, a turn, you can see many different old alleies elegant feeling.
這個是餓鬼埕的由來的板子,其實下面的水持有一隻烏龜,但是不容易看見。
Lukang is an old port many many years ago. By that time, people used to transport by ships, so the town near the port always blooming first. Now the urban city already transfer to other spots, like Taipei.
家家戶戶都非常的古樸、漂亮、雅致。
Every house and doors are very beautiful.
我好像進入了時光隧道,到了另外一個時空。
I felt like into the time machine, watching another space in another time.
這個「反璞歸真」最讓我喜歡,其實我再這裡拍攝的時候才九點,店家都還沒有開,但是把這個「反璞歸真」鎖住,很有感觸。
This four words meaning : "return to innocence." I shot it because I feel very different about this view, with the lock, it's like: Locking " return to innocence". Like growing people's feeling, don't you think?
半邊井,是前人將井切成一半,一邊是給自己用,另外一邊是給沒有水的人來取用的,代表以前的人很有人情味。
This calls, a half well. Elders cut this well by a wall, inside the wall can get the water by their own. The outside half is for the people who doesn't have water to use. Meaning the elder has friendliness, and humanness.
就在這個古意盎然的地方,又看見了熟悉的身影。貓咪。
And at this very simple place, I find very fimilar shape again-cat.
小咩咩三號的指頭是白色的,好可愛啊。
See the very cute white toeies? How lovely!
小咩咩四號,睡在籃子裡面,跟居民丟棄的煙盒睡在一起格外有一種感受。
And this ginger sleeps in the basket, with the empty cigarette box, I can imagine:
好像在說:「煙沒有了,又沒錢買,只好睡了。」XD~~
"With no cigarette, I can only sleep" hahaha~~~
摩托車下面也藏了一隻小貓咪。
Here is another one under the motorcycle.
於是,小咩咩三號四號五號,聚在一起。
So, 3 lovely cats together. Makes my journey more richer~
看著這個畫面,我內心充滿感激。
明天帶給大家看鹿港龍山寺的貓咪!!

Seeing this view makes me feel so grateful for this lovely old town.
I will show you a cat in a very famous temple in this town tomorrow!

What a lovely town, just like out of the old Samurai movies ( I know they are a different country) but it has that old feel. Wouldn't it be wonderful to see inside :)

Mickey said...

I can see why you want to go to this town. It is very rich in history and it has cats ;) It looks lovely too :)
I like the idea of a well that can be used by all people. That is a good example of sharing!
I hope you are having a great vacation!!!!

They are very beautiful in a very svelte way!

I am glad you are spending quality time with Adan and Lego!

一連兩則,好多貓咪喔,相信此趟會是大豐收!
拍街貓跟家貓是完全不同的感覺,看到牠們,就是看到很真實的生命,不管美醜、老幼、健康與否,總是讓人很感動。
