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

Where It Begins

Every winter and summer I get invited to join a photo trip that has been organized by one of my instructors at school. First time I joined this trip was five years ago; about 5 months after I moved to San Francisco. Visiting all the places that was planned by my instructor and I had absolutely no idea what to expect; I knew no one and that trip turned out to be a blast. During these fives years I signed up multiple times and five years later now, I came back to visit the same places and finally decided to signing off as a veteran. Pheew! I felt like this time I am reviewing myself all over again because I know this might be the last.

五年來,每年的冬夏兩季總有機會和攝影朋友一起公路旅行往加州南方的沙漠前進,不是一般大眾詳知的那些景點,而是人煙罕至的地方。我還記得第一次來是剛搬到舊金山沒幾個月的冬天,同行的人裡一個也不認識的就來了,至今仍覺得那是非常棒的一趟旅行。五年來同樣的旅程參加了很多次,每一次都有很不一樣的回憶以及作品。而這一次再回來,可能是最後一次了,於是心裡總帶了點不一樣的情緒在。
 

I remember when I first stepped onto all the beautiful locations, walking very frisky thinking what to photograph for my next trip. I also remember what was I worried about and those feelings never really stemmed from my memory. I have grown so much since then, I hope I have became the type of person I wish to be, who's full of character, story, and passion. I am soon moving onto the next journey of my life, and once again I keep telling myself, life is a tasty chaos, I have to keep it on record so when I look back to my posts, I'd be very proud of myself.

即便成長過程一直是個早熟的孩子,但是經過五年的年歲,現在往回看,我又成長了好大一步,已經是個不一樣的人了。雖然內心深處的晦暗以及思緒還沒完全擺脫,但我想我正逐漸踏實的長成過往希冀自己能醞釀成的模樣。生命是一場美好的鬧劇,我必須不斷提醒自己,才能在難過時,不至於被悲傷壓垮。始終都想要成為能夠讓自己驕傲的人。
