Atmosphere of home

When we were on the bus to Mt Huangshan, were met this nice native chap in his mid-20s who showed great hospitality and told us great stories about his hometown and the gorgeous mountains that paints its surroundings. We alighted at different places and I didn't expect to see him again. However, that evening when I dragged myself back to Tangkou after crawling up Mt Huangshan (literally), I bumped into him. It feels awkwardly good to bump into someone I actually know in a place so totally foreign. In small towns, everyone is your friend.

A Ming vase can be well-designed and well-made and is beautiful for that reason alone. I don't think this can be true for photography. Unless there is something a little incomplete and a little strange, it will simply look like a copy of something pretty. We won't take an interest in it. (John Loengard, "Pictures Under Discussion")

To take a photograph is to participate in another person's mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time's relentless melt. (Susan Sontag, "On Photography")
