【COUNTRY BOY】🌾 even though i’ve been living in big cities all my life, making me one the many urban citizens, i never feel like taking photos there or elsewhere in foreign countries. unlike others but also just like many, i get enchanted by the beauty of nature. after finding a hidden gem in the middle of nowhere, my heart throbs faster and faster. then my smile grows wider with the millisecond, my eyes try to take it all in and my hands moves quickly to catch the moment with my camera. i’m quite an impatient person. as for ‘taking my time’ taking photos — that simply doesn’t exist. my curiosity wants to see more and ‘staying at one place’ stands in the way.
these three shots are the result of my impatient behavior (or actually more like my dads). during my family road trip, we drove past these breathtaking fields, which stretched out over many kilometers on both sides of the highway. the sky was clear blue and there was nothing else except us, a van with 9 people. at some point my dad stopped the car to let us take some photos as this view was ‘something we won’t be able to encounter again in the near future’ — his words, not mine. after taking family photos for my shenzhen fam with all their phones, i had no time left to capture with my actual camera. however, the heavens were with me. my little cousin was playing with grain and what came out of it, satisfied me enough to have it posted.
