Scenery & Street Photography - Macau (Part 1)

In the month of December in 2013, I took a trip to China to visit relatives and to travel places and take photos. On this trip, I visited Jiangsu (江苏), Anhui (安徽), Hong Kong (香港), and Macau (澳门). I took many photos on this trip and I will be splitting them into many parts. I will do my best in these blog post to describe the photos, however due to the lack of map data for China (on Google) and my horrible Chinese, I may not be able to give you too much details on certain things. At the time of visit, the smog in China is very heavy. In many of the photos, you will see what looks to be fog or haze, but it is the smog (pollution) in China. Be warned, that the pollution in China is not at safe levels. I started coughing less than one week into the trip, and I did not recover until the beginning of March this year (2014). Many individuals in China had the same cough I got. If you haven't done so, you can view my vlogs here. I already posted all my vlogs (of the entire trip) on Youtube, but these photos will come out in parts.

12/2013,我去中国旅游。我去了江苏、安徽、香港、和澳门玩。我会把照片分成很多部分。我的中文没有那么好,我不能翻译所有的东西。 我去中国的时候有很大的雾霾。我咳嗽咳了好几个月。我这次旅游也拍了一些视频,你可以在这里看。

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. To view my best Macau photos from this trip, use this link. To view all of my photos from 12/22/2013, use this link.

I begin my Macau (澳门) photos. The photos for today will be random scenery, street photography shots, and some night long exposures.

我今天开始我在澳门拍的照片。

First photo is shot at Lotus Square. This is the official flower of Macau (奥门). 

Look who found Waldo! LOL I had to get a photo of this hotel...

Long exposure of the streets. Since many of the names of roads in Macau is in Portuguese, I am unable to label a lot of things since I don't speak the language.

The special dual license plates on some of the cars in Macau. Some cars have two license plates. One of them for the Macau's license plate database, and the other one is for the Chinese government database. I think these dual license plate systems is probably issued to cars who transit through the border often.  

 A shot of Grand Lisboa.
