鹿港看到貓-3 ;Seeing cats at LuKang -3

小芥:
Michico :
8月26日我來到了鹿港,拍了很多貓咪照片還有古蹟。主要是為了拍攝貓咪而來,想要在這個古色古香中尋找貓咪的倩影。可以觀賞前面第一篇第二篇,這邊第三篇是為一個段落。我知道大家都很想念阿丹和樂高的樣子。哈哈。
Aug 26th, I came to LuKang, it's a place at middle of Taiwan. I came for shooting cats, and want to see many historic spots. You can see the 1st and 2nd chaps. Adan and Lego will be back tomorrow, I know you all miss them, hee hee hee~
續上一篇,我來到了龍山寺。到了鹿港,至少要看過龍山寺和天后宮對吧。那天是星期二,根本沒有什麼人,所以我很愜意的走了進去。
Continue the 2nd chap, I went to the LungShan Temple, it builded at 1786 year, very old. If you go to Lukang, you have to go 2 temples, one is LungShan Temple. Another one is Tienhou Temple.
上面這張照片可以點大,我特別保留大一點的照片。讓大家可以看見古蹟的細節。非常偉大的藝術作品。
You can click bigger the upper photo. I keep the bigger photo could let you see the detail, very beautiful and old master piece!
我常常在想,這個古蹟一直接受風吹日曬雨淋,真的很偉大。每個古積保存者都很了不起。
I usually feel grateful for those historic spots keepers, they are really amazing keep these old buildings. It's very difficult to protect them from the sun, wind and rain!
每個細節都直得我們細細品味。
Every details are full of tasteful.
這個屋簷是廟方工作人員建議我拍的,他這個屋頂上有個吐水口,然後沿著屋頂,右邊有個仙女,雨水沿著屋頂流湧下來到仙女的裙襬時就會出現水花。很有藝術感,可以自行想像。
This roof eaves you can see the top has head with open mouth, when the rain comes the water could drain by there and to the right, the fairy's dress. It will make the waterfall at Fairy's dress will become a beautiful view, you can imagine it by yourself.
這個門神,也是廟方工作人員跟我搭訕之後,特別幫我關上門讓我拍站在一起的門神,這番好意怎麼能夠不拍咧,拍拍拍。真的很感謝廟方!!! 我超喜歡鹿港的龍山寺的,挖哈哈。隔壁做節目的一群人都沒有這種好福利。
This is door-god, usually the door can't be closed, but the worker at temple close the door for me to shoot, I didn't ask them to, they just close special for me to shoot, I am so thankful!
外圍的圍牆上有很多神的石像。
And there are many god-carved statues.
每個都很好看,我每一張都有拍攝特寫。這邊就不一一放上去了。此時...
Every statues are beautiful, And by the time I shoot....
從側門偷偷溜進來一隻虎斑。這隻應該是我進到鹿港以來最肥美的一隻了。
There is a tabby coming!
虎斑:剛剛有同夥告訴我今天又來一個愛拍貓的,就是妳吧?(設計對白)
Little tabby, hey, you are the most fattest cats I have ever seen at LuKang, but you still thinner than Adan.
不知道他想要幹麻?
I wonder what he wants to do.
ㄟ?小虎斑站起來了。
The tabby stands up...
結果是在喝水啊。
And drinks water!!
遠遠一拍,龍山寺的喝水貓。帥啊!
I shoot from farer place, the cat in temple, how good is that!
喝完了,他就消失了。這麼熱的地板,踩起來應該也不太舒服。
After drinking water, he is gone, the floor is hot, I think he is finding a cooler spot for nap.
然後,我又要去找天后宮,走到巷子裡,又....
And I am going to find another temple TienHou temple and into an alley, and again...
已經接近晌午,貓咪已經在休眠了。
Very close to noon, this cat is sleeping.
這條摸乳巷非常有名,為何叫做摸乳巷,其實這個本身是一條消防巷,由於寬度70cm只能走一個大人,兩個人就一定會擠在一塊過不去。所以如果在古時,一男一女剛好要路過,就會有護乳巷或是君子巷之稱。我走進去其實也跟很多人擦身而過,還好啦,根本碰不到XD~~ 來讓大家體會一下窄不窄:
This alley calls "touch-breast lane" why? Because it's very narrow, only 70cm. At very old century when the people are very conservative. If 1 man and 1 woman needs to accross this lane, they must touch to each other, so some say this alley "protect-breast lane" or "touch-breast land" Actually it's a fire lane. Let's see how narrow it is:
Alley
終於,到達天后宮,這個比龍山寺的歷史還悠久,不過比較華麗~! 可能跟建造材質還有香油錢多寡有關係。(我猜想拉)
Finally I went to TienHou Temple, this is even older than the last one, it build at 1683 year.
這時候已經正午,非常熱。
It's noon now, extremely hot!
天后宮就算在星期二的中午,人就滿多的了,如果是週末,應該會塞爆人。
You can see there are many people here, it's very famous and efficacious. You can wish & pray many things here.
這裡是全台灣最早的媽祖廟,一定最靈拉!! 進來進來!!!
You have to pray something here, it will be come true. So I came here with my family all healthy, and wish Adan's eyes and body all good and so is Lego.
這邊是捐香油錢後,領香來拜,拜完全部,這包香就會用光。看你要捐多少錢。
Every corner is beautiful.
二樓的凌霄寶殿...看得到媽祖金身啊。有拜有保庇!!!
I come here with my sincerest heart!
真的是太美了。
Too beautiful!
我只能說鹿港天后宮真是名不虛傳。太盛大了。
I am so glad can be here!
離開之後轉角的小吃店,有沒有看見瓦斯桶前面有個熟悉的身影?
See there is a very familiar shape?
是的,一隻美麗的小橘。
Yes, a very beautiful ginger!
小橘:嗨各位,希望你們喜歡鹿港,有空計畫一下,來這邊看看我們喔。
Ginger: Hey everyone, I wish you all like LuKang, if you come to Taiwan, ask Michico bring you all here to see me!

ps: I am also purring for Adan's eyes.
If the high pressure continues he should get off all steroids and perhaps a few days on glaucoma meds to get the pressure down

Get better Adan-dan
