Everything You See is Just Perfect

6

Our past time and journey have never been wasted. Yet the paths we’ve chosen are not always that clear and definite. With plenty of places to go and many choices to make, people become vexed, as there are always a lot of things to handle around. That’s how life is. People are caught off guard when they have to deal with the situation. Tolerance is the just beginning of learning, and one will gradually find the way to his own life, calm and peaceful.

Things that we keep in sight and mind are all likely to be distorted. We are so forgetful that we envisage pleasant scenes subjectively and consciously. As mortal men, we record things around in one way or another. Some sketch, and some put their affections into songs, while I pick up my camera to take photos. I’ve been to my distant hometown, to streets and lanes that I have been familiar with, to strange places filled with love to enjoy the scenery. It sounds fantastic, but goes too soon. I am infatuated with everything, but so what?

So do my ways of traveling. For me, a camera at hand gives me a sense of security. Everything is unfolded as I take the camera out of my backpack, and I feel content after putting it away. The camera along with the memory card in my bag has become a part of my life and feelings. I won’t pay too much attention to the photos taken, for after that pity would come next to satisfaction. What I really enjoy are the things I am familiar with: the camera in my backpack, the repeated actions, and some natural habits-be they good or bad.

A friend of mine ever teased that he’d walk the earth with only a toothbrush. Surely, there are some reasons in it. The farther one goes, the humbler he may get. It’s true that we ought to winnow the millions of options down to a manageable handful. Don’t care too much about those that have gone, nor strive to become morally lofty. Everything in our present life, old and new, including backpacks, cameras, bad habits, is just perfect.

2004年开始旅行摄影,从新疆西藏自驾拍摄,2006年至今游走日本和欧洲,拍下大量旅行照片以及撰写游记文字。从2008年开始自印原创欧行旅行明信片在世界各地邮寄给网络上的朋友。因此被称“交换瞳孔控”、因作品多拍摄世界各地的人像,又被称“世界表情捕捉控”。其照片以电影故事般的画面展现人物的真实内心,色彩透露一股悠远神秘的气氛,每张照片似乎都在叙说一个属于行走的人才有能看到的故事。

2012年莫梵稀发表散文随笔《请把我留在最好的时光里》,书中近百张摄影精品,展现了她8年来旅途上朝气蓬勃的青春与30多个国家迥然各异的人文风象。此外,《请把我留在最好的时光里》还用美好且有略带忧伤的文字,表达了对青春、旅行、爱情的独到见地。
