Photography|First Snow at Union Square Park

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!)

距離上一次發文大概又一個月了。現在大概保持一個月一篇的發文頻率,好像有點太低,但無奈每次想寫什麼都會寫很長,時間又很有限,只好暫時將這裡擱置,實在應該更妥善地規劃我的時間。總之,我終於度過了每天十二點半睡三點半起床、天天靠大杯大杯的黑咖啡撐著的恐怖期末地獄,現在正在歐洲過聖誕假期:)

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?;)

為了提高發文頻率,我覺得把我拍的系列照片統整在同一篇文章裡,以圖像為主、文字為輔的短文形式,或許是個不錯的方式。一方面整理照片,一方面也能常常更新。希望你們會喜歡這個新單元;)

 

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.

2017年紐約的初雪好像來得晚了些,就連不太常下雪的巴黎都下了雪,紐約的氣溫仍舊維持在一定的高度。沒想到就在12/9,從開始稀疏地毛毛雨般的小雪,到降下綿密又大片的雪花之間不出三個小時。從學校出來,聯合廣場公園已經一片銀白。雖然不是第一次看到下雪,但身為一個在亞熱帶地區長大的人,看到降雪還是很興奮。

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.

這張是這系列我最喜歡的一張。那位戴高帽、穿西裝的男士加上那把他前方的傘,時間彷彿回到珍奧斯汀的十六世紀。

 

Christmas Market in the Snow

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

雕像的手指向了熱鬧溫暖的聖誕市集。

 

Diagonal

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

這三張覆上白雪的公園長椅、枯枝、草地,一直給我一種哈利波特的感覺。

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.

我覺得這是張充滿動感的照片:一身紅的聖誕老人為整個畫面帶來一點色彩,綠色的垃圾箱則與聖誕大紅形成強烈的對比;聖誕老人後方戴著聖誕帽、穿著紅灰條紋的男子、照片左前方拿著紅色咖啡外帶杯的女士,以及照片後方黑外套的人物,都為這個畫面帶來動態與生活感。

 

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.

這張雖然構圖和角度都不太對,但還是這系列我自己依然非常喜歡的一張。這是屬於我的紐約人物圖像。

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!

      Thank you Tiffany!
      抱歉這麼晚才回妳,太久沒打開網站了lol
      總覺得我拍到有感情的照片在構圖、對焦或是光線上都會有點缺陷,但不完美好像才是人生
