Power of classical music

I have been watching the talks on TED quite often recently so as to look for some inspirations. Today I found this talk by Benjamin Zander not only inspiring but also very touching. Hope you enjoy it, too! In case … Read More

Light leak

It was the first time I saw this kind of light leak on my T4 (or on any of my cameras), and interestingly, it happened to only one frame, not the entire roll of film. I really have no idea … Read More

Natural Bridge

It’s a small state park in Wisconsin, named Natural Bridge State Park, but it’s not very popular. The key feature is this bridge (of course). Konica Autoreflex T4 Konica Hexanon AR 21mm f/4 EE Kodak Ektar 100 1/60s @ f/8

Trunk

Believe it or not. This picture was taken back in June this year. I finally finished this roll last weekend and had it developed today. The first two frames of this roll was taken even back in May! If the … Read More

Turn Off Electronic Devices

上個月出差的時候,注意到其中一架班機的機艙內已經沒有禁菸的標誌,取而代之的是: 「TURN OFF ELECTRONIC DEVICES」 老實說,我一直覺得禁菸的標誌是多餘的。這個年頭,我還真不知道有哪個班機是開放吸菸的。

北關

昨天看到這則 CNN 的報導:Five guys take same photo for 30 years 就想到以前跟幾個朋友也做過類似的事情。不過人家是每五年拍一張照片,拍了三十年,我們只有三張照片,第一張應該是高中的時候,後兩張已經在念大學了。 地點在北關,一個火車站沒人管,可以自由進出的小鎮。 大學畢業之後就再也沒有這樣的機會了。一晃眼,十幾年就過了。現在其中兩個人(包括我)在美國,另外三個人在台灣。沒錯,雖然照片中只有四個人,總得有個人拍照吧?
