Hello there, I know it’s been a while since my last post. You know, finals are crazy, especially in grad school. Anyway, I eventually survive my final hell, and now traveling around Europe for my Christmas holiday vacation! (Hurray!)


I think it would be great to create a “photography” section to document my photo series. I’m intrigued by visual storytelling lately. Please tell me what you think about the new section, and maybe some thoughts on my photos?;)



First Snow in New York City, 2017

2017 紐約初雪

The first snow came relatively late this year in New York City I think. On December 9th, the city finally welcome its first snow. I went to school that day, bringing my camera. So I got the chance to record the magical moment at Union Square Park.


讓我們一起來看看 2017 紐約初雪聯合廣場公園的魔幻時刻吧!


Let’s take a look! (For those who have been following my Instagram, you might feel familiar with some of the pics.)


Back to Jane Austen’s Times

This is probably my favorite one in this series. Thanks to the man in costume, the photo came with a 16th Century Jane Austen vibe.



Christmas Market in the Snow

The statue pointed out the warm and boisterous Christmas market at Union Square.




These three photos of snow covering the benches, branches and meadow render me a sense of Harry Potter.

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

I feel this is a photo of dynamic: the Santa Claus in red highlighted the view, while contrasting with the green of the dumpster. The man wearing a Christmas hat in red and grey, the woman holding a red coffee cup and the person in black coat at the back of the photo all contributed senses of life in motion.



Here’s to the Ones Who Dream

Albeit the angle’s wrong and the proportion weird, this is still on top of my favorite list of this series. This is my version of Humans of New York.


Here’s to the ones who dream, foolish as they may seem;
Here’s to the hearts that ache, here’s to the mess we make.


Which one is your favorite? What do you think about my photography and this new section? Please comment below! I’ll really appreciate your opinion <3

Happy holiday!
