  • ① Photographing Wildlife in Florida One of my hobbies and a favorite thing I love to do is nature photography. Wherever I go I carry my camera equipment with me to take photos of the landscape or of the animals and creatures I see. I live near a wildlife drive that is a protected habitat for 367 different species of birds as well as other animals including bobcats, otters, alligators and snakes that you can photograph from the comfort of your automobile. The drive is a favorite thing to do by visitors from around the world who are nature lovers. I find the wildlife drive very relaxing and enjoyable and you never know what animals or birds you are going to see. I like to post many of the wildlife photos I take on Facebook and many of my Facebook friends tell me they eagerly wait to see what I will post next.

  • ② Lighthouses There are many historic lighthouses around the United States. Lighthouses typically include a tower with a bright light at the top that serves as an important location beacon for passing ships. The very first lighthouse in recorded history was the famous Pharos of Alexandria, Egypt that was built about 280 B.C. It was 450 feet tall, similar to a 45-story building. The Northern United States has a series of five giant lakes called the Great Lakes that include Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, Lake Superior, Lake Erie, and Lake Ontario. There are many scenic and historic lighthouses along these lakes. I really enjoy photographing many of these beautiful and historic lighthouses when I am in the area.

  • ③ The Summer Palace A number of years ago I was living in Beijing, China where I was principal of a large International Private School. One of my favorite places to visit was the beautiful Beijing Summer Palace which is said to be the best-preserved imperial garden in the world, and the largest of its kind still in existence in China. It is listed as a World Heritage site, a masterpiece of Chinese landscape garden design. The highlights of the park include Kunming Lake, the Long Corridor, Longevity Hill, the Marble Boat, and the Garden of Virtue and Harmony. There is also a famous and beautiful 17-hole bridge. It is 150 meters long and looks like a long rainbow above the blue water. The paths along the lake lead you under shady trees or along a narrow-roofed colonnade known as the Long Corridor, that contains magnificently painted ceilings.
