「和」 (Harmony)
賓哥島 馬來西亞 Pangkor Island Malaysia 1989

你和自己,
你和家庭,
你和社會,
你和國家,
你和世界,
你和地球,
你和宇宙…

你「和」嗎?

對自己的身心靈缺乏和諧?
對家只是搭食搭住的地方?
對社會根本沒有什麼關係?
對國家不顧念而外奔換藉?
字典中找不到一個「和」字,
我的地球,我的世界,我的宇宙,
「我只為了我而活!
其他一切與我何幹?」
朋友啊!是和諧救亡的時候了,
『不要效法這個世界,只要心意更新而變化,
叫你們察驗何為神的善良、純全、可喜悅的旨意。

今天就開始為自己的身心靈譜上和諧之曲吧!

(羅馬書12:2)

“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. ”

(Romans 12:2)

思念 (Miss You)
廣州 中國 Guangzhou China 1998

一對小小的斑鳩,

卻盛載著你我的情誼,

斑鳩一天仍在一起,

你我也情意常存。

天南地北,

斑鳩分開了,

沒有人知道為甚麼,

就像你我當年一樣無緣義斷,無從尋問?

今天你已有你的生活,

我也有我的忙碌,

午夜的某一個時空間,

卻刻著:「緣滅緣生,緣來緣去,緣折緣長。」

兩情不在朝朝暮暮,

只盼真愛能一生一世永留痕!

小斑鳩,謝謝你今夜再到夢中來緩我思念!


『原來我們不是顧念所見的,乃是顧念所不見的。因為所見的是暫時的,所不見的是永遠的。』


(哥林多後書4:18)


“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. ”

寶貝的故事 (Shell Tales)
紐西蘭 南島 基督城 Christchurch South Island New Zealand 1993

眼眸裏滿載著抱怨,
淚水早已結成冰珠,
火燙燙的一顆心,滿溢著愛意,
竟慘被深埋安葬了。
世界本來就是冷冰冰的?
你我只是把那十二月的嚴寒延續。

墓地裏一顆一顆其貌不揚的貝殼,
背後竟然是有一個那麼動人的傳說!

「相傳貝殼可以盛載著你我的笑語情話,
旖旎溫馨的山盟海誓;
然後便緊緊的合著,等你回來,
要它再打開?
除非遇到情真意誠的愛侶。
它才會願意傾盤而出!」

今天,貝殼都敞開著!
是無力去挽?
再沒有氣力和信心去為愛打開又合著?
還是……
貝殼早已把全盤情話悄悄地傳給了你?

神要擦去他們一切的眼淚。不再有悲哀,哭號,疼痛,因為以前的事都過去了。

(啟示錄 21:4)

“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."

出路 (Exodus) 柏特拉 約旦 Petra Jorda 1995

遙看連綿山脈,碧海連天,
天、地、海,本來自一體,
卻巧妙地分了界線。
遙看前路,天、地、海,
連接得天衣無縫,
正欲鼓起勇氣起步時,
又看艱難、迷惘。
人生路,本來就是難路。
我們瑟縮的在害怕、膽怯、
舉步不前時,
天、地、海,仍存在。
而路,就在腳下,
每一步都是需要我們自己走出來的!
而輕挽我們手臂的主,在安慰鼓勵說:「我就是道路!」

耶穌說:「我就是道路、真理、生命,若不藉着我,沒有人能到父那裡去。」

(約翰 14 : 6)

 

The sky and mountains
Earth and sea
In oneness, in unison
Beckoning
Harnessing courage, we take a first step
one step along the road of obstacles
The road of life
If we were to fear
it should not be the road ahead
for it is not our feet, our mind
our strength and weakness
that would lead us through the journey
for it is He who said “I am the Way."

“Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. ‘"

(John 14:6)

鏡花緣 (A Mirror has Two Faces)
塞維爾 西班牙 Seville Spain 2001

每一張臉都訴說一個故事,
每一張葉子, 都隱藏着一段經歷。
我們害怕別人從臉容上看透自己的心事,
於是刻意地戴上一個面具,
沒有半點造作, 欣然接受大自然既定的規律,
隨緣地享受每一段時光。
秋天到來的時候,
人的臉繼續被塗添脂粉, 盡最後的努力去掩飾經歷。
枯黃了的葉子, 大大方方的,
依舊持着典雅的姿態, 欣然接受結局的安排。

你們原是在黑暗中,可是自從成為基督的信徒,你們就在光明中。你們的生活必須像光明的人。光明結出一切豐盛的果實,就是良善、正義,和真理。』

(以弗所書5:8-9)

 

Every face tells a story
so dose every single leaf
Through the joy of spring
the richness of summer
the lucidity of autumn
and the stillness of winter
a leaf lives the glory of time
and yet
We out on masks for we fear
the truth
reality
the passing of time
others
and our own selves
Could we not live like a simple leaf
celebrating the beauty of life
in each and every season?

“For you at one time were dark, but now are light in the Lord: Let your behaviour be that of children of light, because the fruit of the light is in all righteousness and in everything which is good and true."

(Ephesians 5:8-9)

角度 (Perspectives)
奧克蘭 紐西蘭 Auckland New Zealand 1988

看著倒影中泛起的影象,
原來是那麼的不真實和多變,
同是水中影,竟然反映著千萬個不同景象,
只在乎觀者站的位置。
人生就是那麼的有趣,
本來看似同一樣的事物,
原來很在乎我們所站的位置和心情,
感受和反應也不一樣。
正好說出凡事都沒有絕對,
有時只在乎觀點與角度!

神卻回答我:「你只要有我的恩典就夠了;因為我的能力在你軟弱的時候顯得最剛強。」因此,我特別喜歡誇耀我的軟弱…因為我甚麼時候軟弱,甚麼時候就剛強。』

(哥林多後書12:9-10)

Water, in its most gentle voice
advised us
“Do not look for absolute
For it doesn’t exist"
Water, in its wise manner
showed us
“Flow and you will see
nothing is meant to be still."
From the beginning of time
the mystery unfolds
Truth, Compassion and Beauty
live
in the veins of a tree
in the reflection in water
in the pattern on a stone
We may not applaud the greatest artist of all
and yet He creates for us
with love and care
a world full of continuous wonders

“And he said to me, ‘My grace is enough for you, for my power is made complete in what is feeble.’ Most gladly, then, will I take pride in my feeble body … for when I am feeble, then am I strong."

(Cherished)
澳門 中國 Macau China 1996

二十年前的一個秋天,我開始用照相機代替了畫筆。

不停的遊歷,放眼世界…

每當翻閱當年的旅遊照片和影集時,總驚覺世界變了!

是可惜;也是珍惜。

回首過去,自己錯過太多了,造物主不斷為我們塑造美麗動人、多采多姿的景緻,前人一直建造攝人、宏偉的古蹟,祇是當時我們太不懂欣賞和保存了。

當知道眼前一切,將褪色幻滅、蕩然無存,祇可成追憶時,情急的我又再次按動快門,貪婪地把眼前每一個動人畫面凝住。

雖然不斷提醒自己要順其自然,隨心隨意勿強求,但感覺仍然像以照相機速寫般,把觸動心扉的影像迅速地用心描繪下來珍藏。

對於藝術創作,由始至終我都抱著直接、純真和自然地反映「真、善、美」為宗旨。過去十多年,在我的攝影創作路上,家人和不少好友都曾先後支持和鼓勵,令我能有信心,勇敢地走自己的路和風格,在此誠心感謝,我將繼續努力創作!

二十年後的春天,被擱置多年的畫筆,將與我和照相機並肩向前。
攝影像領養孩子,而繪畫則像孕育孩子,兩者都帶來無限的安慰及滿足。期望畫筆和照相機可以為我這遲來的藝術創作者織夢和彌補失去的缺憾!

『可是,親愛的朋友們,有一件事你們不可忘記:在神的眼中,千年如一日,一日如千年。神並不像一般人所想的,遲遲不實現他的應許。相反地,他寬容人類;因為他不願意有一個人沉淪,卻願意人人悔改。』

(彼得後書3:8-9)

 

 

At times I caught myself startled by changes. Flipping through photo albums collected from my past journeys I had made, I exclaimed at how the world changed in front of my eyes.

Nostalgia? Yes, I do harbor such feeling but at the same time, I cherish all that I have seen and experienced.

Upon reflection we do miss a lot amidst the great works of the Creator, If only we were to take a still quiet moment to appreciate the beauty around us, if only we could care enough to appreciate and preserve.

Sensing an urgency to capture all that were presented to me, I fell prey to the greed that urge me to hold on to the most touching images, to preserve them in photography. I did remind myself to let go, to allow things to take their courses and yet I could not help but pick up my camera whenever an image moved me. I sometimes chuckled at the futility of my trying to stop the passing of time.

During the course of my creative pursuit, I have been honouring truth, compassion and beauty, honouring the natural form in which images are perceived. I have been blessed with the support of my family and friends throughout the 15 years of pursuing photography. Their support allowed me the confidence and freedom in following my heart. For this, I will always be grateful.

I have left my paintbrush idle for 20 years. I do think it is time to put down my camera and return to painting again. Perhaps it is guilt that prompted me to release images from the captivity of my lenses, perhaps it is the hope that my paintbrush would create spaces, spaces where dreams are made.

Photography is like adopting a child while painting is nurturing him, bringing abundant joy to life. I wish to pursue these passions, fulfill my life long dream & make up for the lost time.

“But, my loved ones, keep in mind this one thing, that with the Lord one day is the same as a thousand years, and a thousand years are no more than one day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his word, as he seems to some, but he is waiting in mercy for humankind, not desiring the destruction of any, but that all may be turned from their evil ways."

(2 Peter 3:8-9)
