A roving camera (不停走動的鏡頭)

Color is something very strange.


Often, it will be much affected by the surface from which light is reflected.



Sometimes, there may be so little of it except the two extremes of black and white.



And the sea too, will often taken on part of the color of the sky.



And otherwise ordinary looking wall will look quite different if some decides to give it some form and some color.



Yellow is a color that is almost certain to stand out, whether it's on a bike.


on a wall



on a lantern



or on a flower.



Unlike yellow, the color brown will often give the impression of something rather more down to earth.



especially when it's joined with green



Perhaps that's because often it's really the color of earth itself with whom we have a sense of intimacy and emotional closeness. 



We all know that in the distance, everything somehow appears much smaller. 


and that the nearer something is, the bigger it appears



the nearer to us something is, the more details we will get.



In the distance, things will be reduced to a blur


and even a human being will appear merely as a shape.


and people will be defined only by their posture.



When something is closer, it becomes more dramatic


No matter where it is




even after it has become detached from the source of its life.

  
Flowers fascinate by both their softness

   
or their shape


or their unusual color

 
or the way they cluster together.



People attract more by what they do.




but the the sea and the sky don't have to do anything



they are impressive by virtue of their sheer immensity. 



But not an ordinary road, which appears totally without interest if not given a sense of  perspective
