And now here is my secret, a very simple secret; it is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye.
-Antoine de Saint-Exupery-
Antoine is the name of this lovely boy I met on a vacation. Antoine is also the name of my favorite author: Antoine de Saint-Exupery. Now, I name my mini digital lomo camera: Antoine. I hope it can see the world in such a lovely and curious fashion like little Antoine does, and also able to see things clearly with heart just like old Antoine advice.
Here are what my Antoine sees through the plastic lens and wishes to tell:
(Once upon a time, Antoine met a lovely girl name Anna and her plastic camera named Yay! We had a day-picnic together and it was such a Yay! day.. ;) )
(Another day, Antoine ran into the wild.. met an dear little deer withe the most fabulous antler, huge sausage that grows on a tree, two holy cows sitting on a wall: it must be magic!)
(The very same day Antoine got its name, he read this shaman chant in a photography exhibition: "Starless in the sky where I was born, and as I turned into a breeze, I flew down." Right there and then, he knows how he and that little girl born.. on a starless sky, flew down as breeze..)
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remember'd;
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
-Shakespeare's Henry V, 1598-
(The two picture above were taken in the place where I am now and the two pictures below were taken on a mini trip with Dito beside me. Funny that these four pictures look somehow completing each other while distance keep us apart)
