some days call for chinese indie music
PS. recent obsession with faye wong
When I got my photography assignment, I intended to take some cool street shots at Duxton Hill.
It didn’t happen. (CNY got a little out of hand, and I got a little lazy.)
Monday morning I borrowed Aloy’s camera and went around the neighbourhood to take some pictures by the road - a desperate attempt to finish up an assignment. The pictures weren’t fantastic, but it was enough.
The sun shines through the window twice a day at my place - early mornings, and late afternoons. It was precisely at 3.52pm Aloy told me the afternoon sun is out, forming lovely shadows (I like them, they are pretty) so I climbed a few storeys and took a few pictures feeling like a paparazzi.
I’ve always liked light, and shadows.
But perhaps my efforts are ‘wasted’, as I discover my favourite pictures are those taken at home before I left, or after I returned from location scouting. (I have to admit some are actually test shots, oops.)
And they are images I see everyday - my dad standing at the kitchen window musing, Aloy’s kitchen view, a shot of my neighbour’s colourful laundry …
These moments are truly magical and I love it.
walk into the club like wait nevermind can we go home
"Your 20’s are your ‘selfish’ years. It’s a decade to immerse yourself in every single thing possible. Be selfish with your time, and all the aspects of you. Tinker with shit, travel, explore, love a lot, love a little, and never touch the ground.”
2013 was a year of Feelings.
8 months off school spent travelling, working at 2 very different places, meeting new friends, meeting old friends, letting go and finding my way back.
Thank you for everything - you guys know who you are.
Happy 2014 everyone.
If you ever see a bad picture of yourself just think about sunsets
Have you ever tried to take a picture of a sunset with a crappy camera? It turns out like shit. I mean that could be the most beautiful sunset you’ve ever seen in your life and the photo looks gross.
That doesn’t mean the sunset isn’t breathtaking, it just means the camera can’t contain it’s beauty.
You are a gorgeous motherfucking sunset never forget that
