鏡中的芝麻綠豆

Mobile Phone, Photography

Mirror of self

最近在家的時間多了,對家中的一切(家人行為、家居環境)多了前所未有的透切見解。若果不是工作上遇上的事令自己看到未被察覺的一面,我不會為如此芝麻綠豆的生活細節費心。一直足以令我認為可以稍微自豪的技考,在不同的場合和觀點可以有全方面災難性的影響。

City's powerhouse

居在什麼環境就很自然地成就出什麼的人,不是我不肯不信,只是當我一直以為性格為主要原因,原來從小背後的小事小東西正正已帶來了一個又一個烙印,當我追索每個人生烙印如何煉出,我竟被嚇得不知所措。不知所措是因每天正正發生在我身處的地方,我怕不得把這負面的一切遠遠地掉去,只是事與願為,皆因這正是父母的行為和習慣,也至身處的居所所至。

Blurring between the months

是沒有人的錯。可以做的,便是提醒自己盡量多方面完善自己。

寧靜的深夜晚上,有種無邊無際的感覺。街上沒有汽車行走的噪音,涼風便在黑夜的窗邊吹過,介時從音樂清單播出的比日間的所有東西美妙,猶如走進了一間戲院看表演。我是一個愛晚上的人,太愛這時空,沉醉的自己也不願走出來,這是現在的我。我所有不可能的興趣事,也是從深夜弄出。深夜去超市買餸菜,深夜弄咖啡拉鐡,深夜拿起讀物,深夜思考寫文,深夜就是我另一個世界、另一個平行空間的自己。

這樣般的生活不知可維持多久,不是理想的時段但又是太值得我留戀的。

Distorted legs

自己在家的每一天,就像一塊鏡子,把真正的自己展現了出來,這我的確多謝自己的勇氣和愚笨。在家一直盲目地住、從不享受家居空間的人也切法把地方改變過來,並現在定期地打掃。從不買餸煮米飯的人也花心思另一餐可以怎様造,還細心選購特價品來配答。閲讀貧乏的我也讀過好幾部書和應用雜誌。由以前把工資看作理所當然的人,也珍惜得來的一分一毫。看透了一部新款手機只是一件工具(跟社交媒體一樣),完全不是自己的大部份,不去追新一代的價錢更足以打造出一個理想的生活空間。

相信這些見證若果比著以前的我,跟本是不可能突然發生。

Watching the masters

怎樣生存的定義也像植物一樣漸漸從主幹中長出了分支,支幹不強但亦扮演出一個重要的成長部分。

Up and under

Trial & Error

Photography

Everything has to go through that ‘trial and error’ stage in order to make it to work. Changes do not guarantees successes, I believe it’s a way to get another good look of myself. Situation-wise it could be difficult at the beginning, things would brighten up when time comes. There’re many aspects in photography I try every now and then, not every venture turns into something productive. Based on the core, I build upon it.

Ups and downs keep occurring as we progress, knowing how to suppress that feeling determines how competent someone could be. That implies not only in photography but to daily life as well. It’s true that I sometimes use my photography as a therapy to counter the depressed side of me.  Like it or not, life is not always a wide, bright avenue for everyone. Ones know how to deal with it always win.

I’m still attached to the photography done at night. It almost made me forget about what’s happening during the day. I had some relaxing shoots last weekend. Weather is calming down with the soothing ocean breeze. I just love it. It makes me excited for the coming days. The holiday seasons is just around the corner, all the beautiful decorative will be putting out soon. I’ll be seeing lots of love in the city, showing affections to each other.

The Spotlights

Photography

I time and time again found myself end up with pictures that I like at night. Whether It’s the lit up street corner, the ambient light post on a backstreet, the spot light readied shop window on the main street, the dim back illuminated advertising board on bus stop; they all catch my immediate attention just because they all look different during the night. The beauty is pouring all over the city.

It’s always uneasy for me during the day, the fact that I work indoor; I rarely get the chance to enjoy the beautiful sunny days. Everything seems too clear, lack of surprises. When the sun goes down, what seems to be the unwanted dimension is gone. The remaining dimensions have reconfigured by us human.  The man-made lighting environment encourages me to see what’s under the city spotlights. Each tells a story of their own.
