New Year, New Me ( Not )

Wishing everyone a happy new year of 2018!  

I am feeling grateful for what I have and thankful to the year 2017 that builded more strength to me. Nothing to complain, no one to blame, just a gratitute. 2018, I’m saying to myself that I am not living here seeking a perfection. I don’t need a diamonds to complete me, instead I value an ugly stones and polish them to shine more than those diamonds. And love unconditionally without hoping, without expectation because Love is true and doesn’t need a return. 

No looking back, but cherish the memories I had good or bad. I thank you for all the beautiful souls I’ve ever met and hope we could still share a laugh forever.

2018 there will be no New Me, I will stay the same.

Between The Hills and The Sea

It's been a whole months to work without even relax and sit back. I need quieter coffee shops, home made meals, narrow streets with beautiful flowers and the old lady with the dog. Some peaceful little corner where I could pause from the world outside - within a few hours from Tokyo. 
Manazuru , in Kanagawa prefecture, Japan. 

A small peninsula that s shape resembles a crane, located in a southwest of Kanagawa just two stops from Odawara station.  The old growth forest for hikes and a home for a fisherman. 

Salt and Pepper of The Life

It helps me build a strong relationship between me and the photographs

It contains a smartphone photos, polaroids, a photos from disposable cameras, things I picked from the street, written fragments, lists, technical details, could be anything.

I just think it is nice to keep on track with the people, stories, and ideas I come across.

Each page is a form of self explorations and it is supposed to be messy and wrecked. 

Every photographers has a different way to work themselves, for me, scrapbooking works best in a fun way.

SALT AND PEPPER

Scrapbook is one of the way to express my thinking, very intimately. 

Cut the photos, and glue them in, one by one, immerse myself into each photos, and remembering the moments, remembering how I took that photos and it opens up a lot of creative ideas for my future projects .
It helps me build a strong relationship between me and the photographs

Like taking a pictures, scrapbook capture expressions, thoughts, feelings, inspiring people I met, voice and acts as simple as capturing memories.
