Tarbes, France – Friends walking along a vast, empty field in sunny winter (taken on December 27, 2013)
Bordeaux, France, taken on September 9, 2011
I was filming an amateurish and experimental short video with my good friend Yuehong and also taking random shots of her as the main character in different locations around Bordeaux. The video was meant to portray a melancholic atmosphere, and I think YH showed it perfectly here, with an air of sorrow, uncertainty, and a tint of hope. (See the original photo in colour.)
Update: Today is the 5th anniversary of this blog! I’ve had loads of fun running this daily blog over the past five years (though I didn’t always update every day) but I’ve decided to end the “daily” aspect of it here. I will keep the blog alive but will post perhaps only twice a week instead of once a day. Thanks for your continuous support!
Le Semnoz, France, taken on March 21, 2013
The snowy hike on Le Semnoz during my third and final PhD training school was one of the most memorable events of my grad school days. Oh, it wasn’t a “gentle” hike, as advertised! However, my awesome colleagues made the trip infinitely much more enjoyable. Charge on, FunMates!
