Some of the most precious memories of my son when he was 13 years old and I was still using my canon 400D…

taken in Nam San Wai, Hong Kong, Summer, 2000.

那一年,你十一歳,臉上仍流露着童真。

那一天,你、我和爸爸,首次踏足南生圍。盛夏:太陽烈、遊人稀、野草高、蚊子多,卻一點也不減我們郊遊的興致。

拿着那部小巧的相機Canon A550,我們送給你的禮物,你崩崩跳跳的邊行邊拍照,甚麼都可以成為拍攝的對象,儘管照片成像不盡清,卻見你的創意和喜愛攝影的心在漸漸發芽滋長。

烈日下你紅撲撲的臉,如熟透了的桃子,面頰還帶點嬰兒胖,雖然已沒有小時候那麼圓鼓鼓了。那時的你,自然而然的面對我的鏡頭,沒有半點做作或尷尬,是媽媽眼中的最佳模特兒。

除了照相機,你的口袋裏還有一個小玩意-搖搖,總愛久不欠拿出來玩一下,偶爾還會興奮地叫我們看你所弄的招式,然後露出滿有自信的笑容,你總是那麼容易心滿意足!

我兒,今天已經是高中生的你知道嘛,媽媽很感恩能有你作我的兒子,帶給我們家庭滿滿的回憶和喜樂。你和姊姊的每一個童年片段,我們都會珍藏在腦海裏,讓時間把它們發酵成為甜美佳釀,在往後的年月裏繼續品嚐。

Soar on wings like eagles

“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.”

– Isaiah 40:28-31
