san francisco, style, fashion, travel, lifestyle curated by Ariel Tzu-Chi

Fashion is about projecting where you're going in life.

Therefore, life is fashion, fashion is style.

That's the lifestyle I am producing. 
 

風尚是一種生活品味的投射

因此生活即是風尚,風尚便是品味

這就是我想實踐的生活方式

Before we go any further into the details, I reckon I should drop you the knowledge of that the photography in is post (and the following two more posts) is done by yours truly herself in the middle of a burning land with a tripod. Seriously though, I do not understand why I thought taking self-portraits in a 100°F/38°C+ desert was a good idea; if you cannot yet tell by my master photoshop skills, I was literally turning pink after twenty minutes standing alone with no shades and was almost evaporated from the ground by the end of the shoot. Enough fable, let's talk about the shoot. 

I keep thinking if I had a someone to shoot with, I could probably do better than photographing myself. Hypothetically, if I have a someone to travel with, we photograph each other, get lost together, and be on the road again together; we talk and we laugh, and we share my silence (very important). I know I should refrain the Pieces overtaking me, but if you have no one to share the scenic reality, it's like you've never been there. Therefore, I hope I did okay with this shoot, so you get to share my vision, cyber-ly. Isn't that kinda romantic, too?  

當初不曉得怎麼想的,竟然覺得在炎熱的沙漠裡自拍穿搭照個好主意。背著相機跟腳架光是走進沙地裡就已經快蒸發掉,每張照片裡,被我後製掉的是呈現粉紅色的肌膚狀態;礦泉水喝掉兩瓶,才完成這項工程。沒有人抓時間,沒有人調整角度,沒有人可以靈活機動,自拍比拍人困難好多。過程我一直在想,如果我有一個對象,我會怎麼拍,去到哪裡,想到了什麼構圖。

如果我們一起旅行,一起說走就走,一起玩,一起分享沈默的時刻,如果有一個對象在的話,我想把他/她放進那個畫面裡。我想把我的視角,留給對方。我當然知道,一起流浪是一個太過不切實際的想法,但是如果無法分享看過的風景,那就等於不存在一樣。作家寫作,詩人寫詩,歌者唱歌,我希望我可以讓你看我看過的風景。
