I love to take pictures, so from now on, I'm going to post some of the pictures I've taken along the years. I'm going to label them as "Picture of The Day". Enjoy them :) 

Herrenhausen Gardens - Hannover, Germany

Hannover is the capital of the federal state of Lower Saxony (Niedersachsen), Germany. With a population of 522,944 (1 February 2007) the city is a major center of northern Germany, known for hosting annual commercial expositions such as the Hanover Fair and the CeBIT.

Every year Hanover hosts the Sch├╝tzenfest Hannover, the world's largest Marksmen's Fun Fair, and the 
Oktoberfest Hannover, which is the second largest Oktoberfest in the world.

The city is also a major crossing point of railway lines and highways (Autobahnen), connecting European main lines in east-west-direction (Berlin - Ruhr area) and north-south-direction (Hamburg - Munich et al).

The Great Garden is an important European baroque garden. The palace itself, however, was largely destroyed by Allied bombing. Some points of interest are the Grotto (the interior was designed by the French artist Niki de Saint-Phalle), the Galery Building, the Orangerie and the two pavillons by Remy de la Fosse. 

The Berggarten is an important European botanical garden. Some points of interest are the Tropical House, the Cactus House, the Canary House and the Orchid House, which hosts one of the world's biggest collection of orchids, and free-flying birds and butterflies.

The landmark of Hanover is the New Town Hall (Neues Rathaus). Inside the building are four scale models of the town and the only working diagonal elevator in Germany, which goes up the large dome.

Another point of interest is the Old Town. At the centre is the huge Market Church and the Old Town Hall. Near by are the Leibniz House, the Nolte House, and the Beguine Tower. A very nice quarter of the Old Town is the Kreuz-Church-Quarter around the Kreuz Church with many nice little lanes. Nearby is the old theatre, called Ballhofeins. On the edge of the Old Town are the Market Hall, the Leine Palace, and the ruin of the Aegidien Church which is now a monument to the victims of war and violence.

Hill Harper as Series Regular in Covert Affairs

Exiting CSI: NY original cast member Hill Harper is spying a new gig — as an ambitious CIA honcho on Covert Affairs.
TVLine has learned that Harper is joining the USA Network drama for Season 4 in the series regular role of an intelligent, charismatic and slightly cocky CIA station chief based in Latin America who plots his way into a bigger position in D.C.
In his quest for greater power, Harper’s character will attempt to make Annie and Auggie his allies, though his actions will cause the pair to question his intentions.
UPDATE: Per our sister site Deadline, Harper will not continue with CSI: NY should it be renewed for a Season 10. (TVLine’s handy Renewal Scorecard has the latest on the CBS crime drama’s prospects.)
In announcing Harper’s casting, USA let slip this preview for the coming season: “Season 4 picks up after CIA operative Annie and her longtime best friend and blind CIA tech-op Auggie finally acknowledge their romantic feelings for one another. Things get complicated at the agency, as Annie aligns with Henry Wilcox in a dangerous, covert mission that has potentially scandalous consequences for the CIA.”
In addition to his nine-season, series regular run as CSI: NY‘s Dr. Sheldon Hawkes, Harper’s TV credits include The 4400, CBS’ City of Angels and The Handler, and Married… With Children.
