Happiness every moment 中國|幸福每一刻

Written by Misha Z. 中文翻譯在下方

There was a train full of people, most of them riding back home to their places they grew up, some of them, like Cheba and me, traveling to places we’ve never been to.

The train is slow, uncomfortable, noisy, dirty and overloaded with people. We are tired after the long ride through the sleepless night, the sun is just about to rise and the new day of our travel is about to begin, even though I’m still not sure if yesterday ever ended.

We are heading to Kunming, a place I know nothing about, but already the name of the city makes me think of some mysterious place in China about which I was reading in my childhood, the place I only knew only from books and dreamed of them. And now I’m here, tired after twenty-four hours of hard seat and dizzy of alcohol we drank to get some sleep, without result, hungry and anxious.I have earphones playing in my ears and the only thing I was doing the last hour was staring out of the dirty window, on the green hills, rice fields, lakes and other landscapes bathing in the morning sun.

The train goes through a tunnel and we are switching to night for a while, then out of it – day again, then next tunnel – night, and so it goes. In the moment we switched to the day I notice a child staring at me while eating. The moment was freezing. We are going through the night for few seconds again and I’m trying to grab my camera. Next day is really short and in the second we are reaching the next night I can see her still staring at me and I push the shutter.

The result was a picture of a girl on the edge of sunlight and darkness, the time when film camera could have enough light to capture it.

As I was back home and got my pictures back I was really happy to see that the picture succeed. Now it reminds me of that place and moment and makes think that it could be much different. Now it makes me love photography even more. It was just a second and I got it. Happiness every moment.


有一列滿滿都是人的火車,大多數是回到他們長大的地方,然而其中一些人,像Cheba和我,到我們從來沒有去過的地方旅行。

火車很慢,不舒服,嘈雜,骯髒還超載。過一個長途失眠的夜晚我們很疲倦,太陽將要升起,新的一天新的旅程正要開始,即使我仍感覺昨天尚未結束。

我們正前往昆明,這個地方我一無所知,但是城市的名字讓我想起了小時候讀過關於中國的一些神秘的地方,一個出現在書和夢裡的地方。現在我在這,很累的二十四小時硬座和酒精帶來的頭昏睡意,除了這些副作用,又餓又焦慮。我耳朵戴著耳機,我最後一小時作的事就是透過骯髒的窗戶望著遠方,在綠色的山丘、稻田、湖泊和其他沐浴在陽光中的景色。

火車穿越隧道時,時間轉換到黑夜,出了又變成白日,就這樣一直切換。在換到白天時我注意到一個在吃東西的孩子盯著我,那一刻凝結了。換到黑暗時,我試圖找我的相機。第二次變亮時只有很短的時間,趕在變暗之前,我可以看到她仍然盯著我,我趕緊按下快門。拍出來的結果是女孩在陽光和黑暗的邊緣,那一刻,底片機正好有足夠的光線捕捉到它。

 

當我回家並拿到洗出來的相片時,我真的很開心照片拍得很成功,現在它提醒我那個人事時地有可能是那麼不一樣的,它使我又更愛攝影了,我捕捉了當下,幸福的一刻。
