【看CP學英文】各國紙鈔上印著最具有代表性的人、事、物,而台灣紙鈔也不例外。近日,一名外國網友在有美版PTT之稱的論壇Reddit分享兩張照片,他本人一手拿著百元、千元鈔票,完美拍出錯位照片,背景與鈔票完美結合,引起網友熱議。

Money bills often feature a nation’s most significant landmarks and leaders, and Taiwan is no exception. Against this backdrop, a Taiwan-based foreigner recently posted on Reddit two pictures featuring NT$100 and NT$1,000 Taiwan bills alongside their real-life scenery. 

原PO手拿百元鈔票,只見折成一半的鈔票完美對準遠方建築,引起網友紛紛詢問拍攝地點。有熱心網友回應解釋百元鈔上的建築是位在台北陽明山的中山樓,並說明為什麼另一面會以孫中山作為百元鈔票代表人物。

The Reddit user, nicknamed @IB-45, holds a half-folded NT$100 Taiwanese bill, which perfectly aligns with the building in the background, leading many to question whether the picture is real.

An enthusiastic netizen kindly explained that the building is actually the Chung-shan Hall located in Taipei’s Yangmingshan and added that the other side of the bill features the Republic of China’s (Taiwan) founding father, Dr. Sun Yat-sen. 

問及如何拍到完美錯位照,原PO解釋道,其實一點都不難,先拍一張中山樓照片,再拍一張自己拿著百鈔照片,兩張用Photoshop合起來就完成了!

When asked by netizens how he managed to perfectly align the bill without the picture getting blurry, he responded: “[It was] no hassle at all. I just took a photo of the building and another photo of me holding the bill and then lined them up using Photoshop.” 

網友紛紛留言,「我爬過陽明山但完全沒注意到它」、「台灣是如此美麗的國家,等不及趕快回去!」

Someone added: “I totally missed this too somehow. Even though I climbed YMS” while another commented: Taiwan is such a gorgeous country. I can’t wait to come back.”

這位作者早在一個月前就曾分享爬上玉山北峰拍攝的另一張千元鈔錯位照,當時也掀起不少討論,網友回應道,「超有創意!謝謝你分享」,更有網友敲碗直呼想看其他面值的錯位照。

A month ago, the author also shared a photo of a NT$1,000 bill taken from the North Peak of Mountain Jade, which sparked a heated discussion at the time, with netizens responding, “very creative post! Thank you for sharing.”

Some said: “Thanks, you can do this with banknotes of other denominations as well.”

看到如此熱烈討論,原PO回應表示,百元鈔上的中山樓是最容易拍的,而200鈔是在總統府,也算簡單,五百元鈔則是攝於大霸尖山。

The foreign visitor explained that the NT$100 was the easiest picture to take at Chung-shan Hall. He added that the NT$200 is also pretty easy, as it features the presidential palace. On the other hand, the NT$500 bill is located at Ta Pa Chien Mountain, making it a bit more difficult.
