beauty of fading 褪亦美


Beauty of Fading – Images by xiaomei chen

(注:中文在英文下面)

I  always find it difficult to throw away flowers. Even fading flowers attract me. There is some quality and beauty in them that fresh ones lack, pretty much like an old lady bearing some elegance and wisdom that a young woman is yet to learn, however pretty she is. I once told my grandma how beautiful she was and how much I wish I could have her beauty. She always laughed and said what a silly girl I was – because she wished she were my age.

The bouquet Rex sent me had been sitting in my room for two weeks till this moring. The colors were fading and the petals were falling. Yet this did not make it easy for me to let go of the bouquet. So I decided to take pictures of it before I let go. And I decided to over-expose them to get a relatively high key look – except a few, of course.

扔花是很困难的一件事情。即便是凋谢的花儿,在我眼中,仍那么美,就像布满皱纹的老美女那样吸引我。外婆在世的时候,我常对她说,你真美,我希望像你那么美。外婆听了总笑我傻,因为她渴望我的青春。

Rex六一节特定给我的百合花在房间有两个星期了。花叶颜色已褪,花瓣儿一片片飘落。我仍舍不得扔,直到今晨。扔花前,特地拍了一个多小时,多数图片的曝光都稍微过一点,为的是求点高调感觉。
