My best endeavour to get a translation:
I have my cottage built in the human realm;
Yet noises of carriages and horses never bother me.
"How can this be possible?" If you ask me,
When my heart stays afar the place becomes secluded...
Plucking chrysanthemums at the east fence,
Mount Lu is beheld by my leisurely heart.
While the serene sunset is reflecting in mountain mist,
Flocks of joyful birds fly home together...
I know there's a profound meaning in all this,
But my mind just misses when I try to name it!
[Drinking Poem No. 5 (of 20)] Tao Yuanming (Jin)
The sight just reminds me of this poem... one of my favourites!
Victoria Peak, Hong Kong
I do not regard myself as a photographer. I'm an ordinary man but extraordinarily obsessed with capturing all the memorable scenes that I encounter in my everyday life. It's like an excited traveller craving to record his memorable journey in a memorable way, but in my case, it's the journey of my life ... If I can record my encounters in such a way that they leave an image on the mind of myself and other viewers, it's a tremendous joy and some accomplishment...
In terms of photography, I'm trying to preserve the moments as my eyes see "something" and my heart feels it too. As such, I seldom feel interested in planned, arranged or manipulated photographs...
