Mình có một tật rất xấu là làm việc này việc kia hì hụi tới lúc mất hết cảm hứng thì mọi thứ dừng hẳn lại. Không sách, không ảnh, không nhạc. Nhiều lúc mình cũng tự hỏi nếu mất hết cảm hứng thì mình sẽ làm gì?

Có một độ, hình như hồi cấp ba ấy, hễ cứ sáng thứ bảy là mình lấy xe ra chạy một vòng thành phố, xem hôm nay thành phố có gì, đón nắng sớm ra sao, ăn sáng, cafe ngoài phố cho thỏa thích, tìm những góc đẹp và ghi lại bằng hình ảnh. Giờ thì mình có một thói quen khác đó là, vào flickr, vào blog ảnh của một người bạn nào đó, xem ảnh, tua từ trang này đến trang khác, đắm chìm.

Hôm nay cũng vậy, ngồi coi ảnh của một cô bé mình biết qua flickr, trẻ và nhiệt huyết, nói ít làm nhiều, thôi không nói nhiều nữa nhé, Xem hình nào!

As you known, Leica always launches The Leica Oskar Barnack Adward at the end of the year, competitors have the same chance to win the latest Leica Camera (last year was Leica M Monochrome) and a lens cost approx. 10.000Euro and 5.000Euro in cash. To me, I’m really keen on taking a look at Newcomer Award launched for professional/unprofessional aged under 25. Last year’s Newcomer firstlook is herre . After time of gazing at attendee’s collection, I realize that they got many many good black and white works, which is easy to understand because B/W took the biggest prize in the last 3 years. Now, let’s have a look!

Cứ vào mỗi cuối năm thì giải này bắt đầu mở ra để mọi người tranh tài với giải thưởng vô cùng hấp dẫn là một mẫu máy ảnh mới nhất của Leica (giải thưởng của năm ngoái là một máy Leica M Monochrome) một ống kiếng trị giá 10.000Euro và 5000Euro tiền thưởng. Riêng bản thân mình cực kì chú ý đến hạng mục Newcomer Award dành cho những nhiếp ảnh gia chuyên lẫn không chuyên dưới 25 tuổi, mọi người có thể tham khảo Newcomer firstlook năm ngoái. Năm nay rất nhiều ảnh đẹp, đặc biệt là ảnh trắng đen, rất dễ hiểu vì ba năm trở lại đây những tên tuổi đoạt giải này đều sử dụng ảnh trắng đen. Giờ thì xem ảnh nào!

From the latest days of Tet (Lunar New Year), I had worked 2 day out of 3 for taking photographs for families, retouching photos and printing all of them. A desire to do what we love is encouraging me to complete all these things within the very first days of the year of Snake. This year is predicted as a year of political instability and I can feel it recent days.

my girl- Lem lem. I always love her dress

I also found a good story on flickr from a friend of mine

“A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?”

Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.

She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything.”

It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses. As early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don’t carry them through the evening and into the night. Remember to put the glass down”

By the way, today is Valentine day so this song would be suitable :”>

So that’s all. Give peace in the next days

 

 

happiness goes on, loneliness remains

I believe that’s all I could try. To be better, to be more of self-control. but sometimes worth it no more. and when all is said and done…

comes as you are

“comes as you are, as you were

as I want you to be

as a friend, as a trend

as an old memory”

There’s a place where gazing and staring is sufficient

I wish that there’s a place where I have an utter joy. The place that I don’t have to care anything at all, happiness is our only friend. No perspective, no rival, the place stands above and everything’s beneath my eyes

I don’t know how but this photograph always intend something of death

Sunday morning, I started to listening over and over again Dad’s old CDs then I found a very special CD from The Beatles, there’s a song called “The fool on the hill”.  There’s a sense of Nirvana inside their song, also Freedom and Yesterday

“Well on his way his head in a cloud

The man of a thousand voices talking percetly loud

But nobody ever hears him

Or the sound he appears to make”
