这次法国的公路旅行来的很突然,国庆期间,老爸突发奇想想要去法国。那说走就走,两天之内安排好了行程。待签证到手,一家四口(父母,我和弟弟)就乘上飞机降落在巴黎。

这篇小图说,我就略过这次旅行的详细流程了。多说无益,主要还是以图片为主。

During the national holidays in China(first week in October), dad randomly came up with an idea of having a road trip to France. Then so be it, I planned the trip and booked everything in 2 days, waited for our Visa and packed our bags. Before we knew it, the aeroplane has already landed in Paris.

This little visual essay, I won't be dropping down lots of travelling details, I prefer just to let the pictures flow and we shall see where they bring us.

因为在伦敦呆的时间比较长,内心中总是会把不熟悉的城市和伦敦进行比较。
伦敦强烈的秩序感,总会让人感到莫名的成熟,强烈的历史气味会不由自主地融入每一个人的灵魂。 散落在街角处的时间碎片不断刺入每一位路人的感知,离开街道的一瞬间总有类似穿越迷雾后的某种解脱感。

巴黎表面类似,但细节却大有不同。我讨厌用明确的形容词,比如“浪漫”去直接概括一个城市。直到我冲洗好胶卷,在灯箱上回顾巴黎街头的照片时,我才发现太多的照片的构成充斥着线条化的,前景的遮挡。

“犹抱琵琶半遮面”,是我可笑的语文功底,能找出来相对贴切的比喻。前景的遮蔽所创造出来的距离感,是当我直观感受巴黎时,潜意识被动选择的观看角度。

这种“距离感”,让巴黎的脉搏弱化了,似飞行在云端之上,猛然从白云间隙中瞧见地面的一些细节一样,但看清楚的瞬间,又被白云所遮挡。 只不过照片里是雨伞,是车辆行人,是浓郁的法国香水味。

有一种文胸叫法式半杯,这些照片像是巴黎着上了黑色蕾丝组成的法式半杯,我来这里只是为了偷瞥一眼。

Because I lived in London for almost 3 years, I do consistently compare unfamiliar cities with London town.
The powerful sense of order and sequence from the core essence of London definitely will make people feel unwillingly aged and matured. The scent of intense history sinks into Londoner's souls. Fragments of broken time provoked every single pedestrian's awareness. The moment you close the door and leave the streets of London behind, it always felt relieved, like the moment you walked out of a long lasting thick Fog.

Paris seems a bit like London, at least from the first glance. When the details have been picked up, then the differences start to appear. I dislike using a generic word to describe a city at large, for example, "romantic ".

Yet the moment I finished processing film rolls and laying them on the lightbox back home, one consistent feature of all images starts to draw my attention. Almost all the pictures I took from the streets of Paris, appear to have a layer of unfocused foreground masking the street.

The unintentional yet consistent overlays create this depth in a two-dimensional plane, acts like a half transparent cover soften the appearance of Paris itself.

This "distant" in my street snapshots from Paris, seems like the city is intentionally pushing me back a notch. Showing me some but not all of its charm and glory. Have you tried​ to view down at the ground when flying through clouds? The details from the ground only will show​ between​ the gaps, only this time Paris​ was captured behind my umbrella, behind pedestrians and cars.

在巴黎的老爸略显拘束,只有几杯红酒下肚才能放松啊。

Dad was a little tense in Paris, he only found himself after glasses​ of good wine.

巴黎两日过后便自驾来到了南法。温度回暖,风衣也收进了行李箱。
虽然拿驾照也有几年,但开车载着一家人公路旅行也是头一次。以前小时候总是坐在爸妈副驾,看广告牌上的字,看街道的行人,看天空。
现在轮到弟弟在后排,每隔五分钟都要问“这是什么啊?”
爸爸在副驾驶不讲话,侧着头看窗外,我晃眼看见他鬓角白色的头发。

Few days after Paris​, we drove down south to the coastline. The temperature​ rose up, coats got packed inside my suitcase.
This was the first time I had a road trip with my family after I had my driver's license.

Years before that, I would always sit in​ the co-pilot seat watching billboards, spotting people​ on the street or daydream about whatever stuff was going on.

During the trip I did all the driving, my younger brother became like me years ago, seated at the back asking all kind of questions.

Dad was always quite in the co-pilot seat. Looking out of the window, lost in his own world.

好有情怀的感觉........
还有,我才知道有种文胸叫“法式半杯”~😂

哈哈哈哈哈哈 学习新知识😏

不論圖還是文,都充滿著細緻的情懷

细致谈不上,但拍照过后其实挺需要文字来沉淀的。有人说照片自己会说话,但有文字的辅助或许能把思绪带得更远吧。
