copy cat, by blackberry bold

I heard a cat scream very, very, very early this morning. NOt sure if it was copy cat, my neighbor’s cat, or others. But copy cat comes to my porch every day. Here she is, at our porch again.

blurb book, a second time

Got my Puzhu in Transition book yesterday. The print was not very good.  It was way too dark, though I did follow their ways to tone the pictures in CMYK, and have friends check the images in their monitors to make … Continue reading

半夜听见猫狗叫

应该是在凌晨两、三点以后,又或许是黎明前。总之那时天漆黑, 屋外风紧而冷。她卷睡在地上的床垫,紧裹着一条旧薄的丝绵被,加盖一个睡袋。也不知有没有做梦。忽然间,窗外有狗忽然怒吠、猫同时尖叫。狗吠短促却愤怒,猫叫凄厉而钻心 。她惊醒,悚然,半睁了睡眼,想, 是谁在深更半夜惊怒了熟睡的猫狗?屋外发生什么事情了?偷盗?命案? 50年代那个血淋淋的命案,被Capote写成“In Cold Blood”的那个命案,也是在寒冷、漆黑的凌晨发生的。当时也是冷风紧吹。她企图睁眼,极力环顾四周。四周一片黑。她闭着眼睛告诉自己,屋门锁紧了,房间门也反锁着。她所有的器材都在房里。于是闭眼继续睡。 但那狗的怒吼、猫的尖叫已经实打实地在她心间留下烙印。睡梦中,她时不时睁眼看漆黑的四周,每次都告诉自己,楼下屋门锁紧了,房门反锁着,器材都还在。然后,一个女人的骂声,有时是哭声,开始在梦中蔓延,与狗的怒吼、猫的尖叫交错。然后堂姐出现了,弟弟出现了,可怖的氛围变成热闹的春节。父亲居然买回各式各样的锣鼓,惹来不少看客。房子变成藏式的。藏房对面却是西方城市的街道。街道上也很热闹,有许多巡逻的警察,显然蕴含着动乱的不安分子。所有这一切发生时,她都是一个局外人,漂浮在半空,惊奇地看着,像看戏。 半梦半醒的她极力想弄明白半夜里所发生的一切。猫狗为何怒叫,那女人究竟是谁?堂姐想对她说什么?弟弟又在干什么?父亲为什么在孤独的藏房里玩锣鼓?西方城市街道的动乱与猫狗的怒叫有什么关系? 她努力想在梦里寻求答案。徒然。当她再次睁眼,天亮了。她看见台面的相机,稍放心了。又不甘心,因为弄不明白昨夜的猫狗事件。于是再闭上眼睛,企图能从梦中找到答案。那努力仍旧徒然。除了一堆乱梦,她什么也得不到。她终于在阳光从窗户钻进房间的时候,放弃所有的努力,起床了。 起床后,看窗外。窗外阳光明媚,安静如在乡间。那半夜里猫狗的怒叫似乎很遥远了。

Eat, then fly, then take a quiet moment to enjoy shadows…

Stuck with paper work and editing work, I haven’t taken pictures for days. A strange feeling. A little guilty, I feel. Only when I pick up the camera and press the shutter, will I feel assured. I want to feel … Continue reading

仍往湖边去

秋雨落了几天,伴着冷风。屋里屋外都满眼的萧条和寂静。今日太阳终于出来了。虽然云层还有些厚,太阳总归是出来了。太阳将落山时,乘天未黑,风还不太冷,信步往湖边去。
