The long awaited Leica M (type 240), or M10, successor to the M9 has finally released. Among the many new features introduced in the “digitization” of the camera, what excites me most is the introduction of the 1080p Full HD movie recording.

Finally Leica M users would be able to actually shoot movies using the smallest full-frame camera in the world, through the Leica lenses. No more hassle of having to fit mounts on SLRs for video recording.

Focusing on the  Leica M has also become more convenient, with the focus assist functions, and the Live View mode. However, I personally still prefer shooting through the standard view finder, as one of the main joys of using the M is using it as a true rangefinder.

There are too many improvements to the M9, and I can’t wait to explore and figure them out one by one. In the meantime, here are my first few shots with the M (240).

Emotional days… reminiscing the past, the pain once felt, realizing the wrong doings, learning from the mistakes,

Repent. New chapter.

I’ve always been intrigued by the subject of “time”. Time is invisible, yet so crucial in life. Recently, a book about time struck me and kept me thinking about the meaning of our existence- “The Timekeeper” by Mitch Albom.

Time is something people value differently. Sometimes we see time as the essence of life, constantly wishing we had more, to do more, to fulfill more, to live more. Other times we dread the passing of time, wishing we could fast forward our days, to give anything for our problems to end now.

With the discovery of how to record time, we start to countdown to every significant moment in life. On the other hand, we remember time, by freezing moments in our minds, through art, photography, songs, music, books and film.

In fact, everything we do is a reflection of time passed and anticipation of what is to come.

Sometimes, I’d like to believe that we have trapped ourselves to time itself. A love-hate relationship.

Because of time, everything has a limit. Every person becomes precious. Every moment earns its value, and life earns its purpose.

But with time, we also learn the pain of losing someone, we begin to hold on to things that we treasure, because we realize that nothing can last forever, except change itself. So, we are enlightened, so we regret, so we hope flr better days.

For me, aside from visual expression through camera lens and pencil sketches, the fundamental of expression for me, is sound and music, as well as the power of the lyric.

I write, so I remind myself of the times we’ve cried in pain, so as not to hurt again.

The antagonizing moments which I used to scream and pray would pass quickly,

would be the same moments I eventually miss after the pain has gone away.

 

I sing, to remember these scars,

To celebrate these memories.

 

“時間”的課題總是讓我好奇。“時間”存在於無形,卻是生命的一大要素。最近看了米奇·艾爾邦的著作《時光守護者》,促使我思考時間對於人們存在這世界上的意義。

時間,對每一個人的價值與意義都不太一樣。有時,人們視之為生命的本質,總覺得韶光易逝、年華易老,經常渴望擁有更多時間來成就更多的事物。也有的時候,人們會恨不得光陰似箭、加快速度跳躍到下一個階段,尤其在困苦的時候。

時間計算的發明,賦予了生活中每一個重要階段象徵性的意義,人們開始能夠精準的紀錄事物的發生,學著倒數迎接特別時刻的來臨。當然隨著時間的不斷流逝,人們也藉由回憶、圖畫、攝影、音樂、歌曲、書籍、錄影等試著留住每一個步入歷史的瞬間。事實上,我們做的每一件事情,都在記錄過去,預計未來。

有時候,我覺得是我們自己把自己困在時間裡,愛恨交錯。

因為有了時間,每一個人、事、物都是有限的。每一個人都變得珍貴。每一個瞬間都擁有其價值。每一段人生都因此而累積其特殊意義。

但因為有了時間,我們也開始懂得失去的傷痛。因為了解到除了“變化”是永不間斷的,世上根本沒有所謂的“永恆”。所有對於自己寶貴的人、事、物,都變得難以割捨。

因此,我們得到開解。

因此,我們留下遺憾。

也因此,我們學會期盼更好的明天。

音樂,是我紀錄時間的本能方式。再由歌詞予以歌曲更生動的刻畫。

寫歌,是為了提醒自己曾經的美好、曾經的痛。讓自己學會面對,避免再受傷。

好了傷疤,忘了痛。曾經的痛不欲生、瘋狂吶喊、暗自祈禱,有時候竟然成為傷痛離去後我會想念的過程。

唱自己寫的歌

紀念每一個傷疤

歌誦每一段回憶
