This is a scheduled post. I will reply comments a week later.
The Chimei Museum (Chinese: 奇美博物館; pinyin: Qíměi Bówùguǎn) is a private museum established in 1992 by the Chi Mei Corporation in Rende District, Tainan, Taiwan. The museum’s collection is divided into five categories: Western Art (including painting, sculpture, decorative arts and period furniture); Musical instruments; Natural history; Arms and armor; Antiquities and artifacts. The museum is known for having one of the largest collections of violins in the world, and also for its significant collections of ancient weapons and Western paintings and sculptures. Forbes magazine, in its February 1996 article on private collectors in Asia, called Chimei Museum “one of the world’s most surprising art collections.”The museum moved to its current venue on Wenhua Road in 2014.
My nephew Lin and his wife took me to see Chimei museum one day when I was in Tainan.
“You won’t be able to see the inside of the museum, because it closes around 5:30, but the outside is still worth taking pictures,” he said.
The plan was: first went to a beach to see sunset, then Chimei museum then eat.
I was hoping we would arrive at Chimei during the blue hour, but the traffic wasn’t good so when we arrived, it was already dark.
The fountain in front was beautiful. There were already several photographers there with their big cameras on top of their tripods. I decided to shoot from the opposite side.
The water would be turned on from time to time. I thought it would be a better photo when the water was on. But I couldn’t see any of those sculptures when water was spraying around.
No clouds. Actually, I kind of like that blackness.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
