老街记忆 Memory of the old streets

  • 从小生活在老街,老街的一切对我来说,是多么的熟悉,又是那么的陌生。
      漫步老街,我的眼睛总会有意无意地去搜寻残存的记忆影子,用手中的相机留存下那些对我来说弥足珍贵的时光切片,脑海中浮现出我当年背着书包、穿街走巷上学去的情景。
      摄影,更多地是在现实生活中抓取与记忆的对应之物。老街早已不是我曾经熟悉的模样,可我仍然那么执拗地关注着她那古朴淳厚的一面,而对其新潮时尚的部分不感兴趣,甚至视而不见。
      问题是,现实中的此物就是记忆中的彼物吗?
      时过境迁,往事如烟。驻足观看,思绪万千。
      Having lived in Old Street since I was a child, everything about it is so familiar to me, yet so strange.
      When I walk through the old streets, my eyes always search for remnants of memories, using the camera in my hands to preserve those precious slices of time, recalling in my mind the scene when I was carrying my school bag and walking through the streets to school.
      Photography is more about capturing the real-life counterparts of memories. The old streets are not the same as I once knew them, but I am still so determined to focus on the simple and simple side of them, while not being interested in, or even ignoring, the new and trendy parts.
      The question is, is this thing in reality the same as the other thing in my memory?
      Time has changed and the past is like smoke. Stopping to look at it, I think about it.
