The Hall of Pray for Good Harvest is the main building of the Temple of Heaven, one of the World Heritage sites in Beijing. This is a red sandalwood model of the hall, shown on the 4th floor of the China Red Sandalwood Museum in Beijing. The other model is the Long March No. 2 rocket which launched the spaceship of Shenzhou No. 5 in 2003 and No. 8 in this year. I don't believe the prelude in the movie "2012", but I do believe in love and in peace. We don't have to pray for a good harvest nowadays but indeed we have to pray for safety and for world peace. Let's try our best.

This was the second time I shot panoramas for the museum. The first time was in 2004 after I had just obtained my first DSRL camera. I took a panorama in the hall and it was an honor to be chosen by Hans Nynberg as the weekly new pano of panoramas.dk.



这是在北京中国紫檀博物馆四楼展厅里的两个模型,一个是世界遗产北京天坛祈年殿,是中国古代人民祈求丰收的地方;另一个是长征二号火箭,曾经于2003年首次载人航天成功。它们分别象征着古代文明和现代科技,都是中国人民聪明和智慧的象征。我并不相信电影《2012》里的预言,但我们一定要相信爱与和平。在当今科技发达和高度文明的年代,我们再也不需要祈祷天佑丰年,然而我们却不再有安全感,我们却要祈祷和平和安全。尽管力量微薄,我们还是要尝试。

这是我第二次拍摄紫檀博物馆,第一次是2004年,那年我们刚刚有了数码单反机。当时我拍摄的是博物馆大厅的龙椅。而那幅作品很快被丹麦全景网的汉斯选中,在该网每周推荐中推出了。丹麦全景网每周推荐各国新闻题材全景照片,在全球全景摄影界有很高的声望。
