This blog post is my final travel post on my recent journey back to Taiwan travelled in May. It contains travel memories of my return from the Taipei International Airport on the departure day. I have scrambled to finish writing in time, as there are a few local Singapore documentary shoots being lined up to be blogged as well as need to start planning the itinerary for my next travel photo trip very soon again!
当你出境离开台湾时, 你有看见机场第一航厦中那面美丽的墙吗? 那是由方文山创作《在旅行的路上》一词, 书画大师朱振南挥毫的 "文学之墙". 别忘了停下脚步, 拍照留念, 细细品尝文学之墙的祝福. 那一天我在桃园机场回国登机前, 看到一首流行教父方文山创作的《在旅行的路上》诗词, 结合书画大师朱振南的笔墨, 欢送着无数即将远行的旅客. 传统与创新文化融合的文学之墙, 成为许多人出国前第一个拍摄的新焦点.
潇洒的笔墨, 挥洒出桃园机场新生命. 许多旅客常驻足桃机一航厦出境南北区廊道文学之墙拍照留念, 吸引他们的是方文山作词的机场之歌, 透过书法家朱振南墨迹, 跃然墙上.
金曲奖最佳作词人方文山, 一出手就用充满个人印象堆叠的创作特色, 将桃园机场一航厦的出境走廊妆点得充满流行元素与台湾精神, 再透过朱振南的飞舞墨迹, 让华语文化与流行音乐, 在桃园机场巧妙的融合. 方文山的词句平易近人充沛情感, 朱振南的书法樸实雄健气韵生动, 常见许多出境旅客驻足欣赏, 竟然忘了登机时刻！
免税商店在桃园机场入口廊道, 结合当代书法与诗歌的概念将其命名为 “文学之墙”, 朱振南结合方文山, 以多元而混搭的艺术美感, 呈现台湾在地风景, 小吃与民俗文化等土地共同记忆, 体现了来自台湾在地的风土民情与浓热情意.
流行音乐知名作词人方文山, 以台湾的自然, 人文风貌, 信仰文化, 美食艺术为题材, 为机场与往来旅客创作 “在旅行的路上” 歌词, 除让旅客重新温习一次在台湾旅游的温馨与感动之外, 作品当中 “我用思念在蕴酿, 牢记你的模样, 挥挥手再见, 祝你旅途平安” 等句子, 也把对旅客及远行游子的祝福, 蕴含其中.
在桃园机场工程施作时, 兼顾不同材质的艺术表现, 以金属钢材的“刚 ”搭配透明压克力材质的 “柔”, 达到刚柔并济, 阴阳调和的在地文化特色, 连多种材质的介接, 光影的变幻特性, 与自然繁茂植生墙的辉映等, 都考虑在设计元素内, 作品完成后, 赢得往来旅客的注目与赞赏, 未来 “在旅行的路上” 也将谱曲.
在旅行的路上, 有些事我们慢慢讲, 有个热情的地方, 名字叫台湾, 电音叁太子快转, 神明微笑过场, 妈祖的信仰, 在你我心里温暖.
云海围绕阿里山, 晨雾间透著光, 幽静日月潭, 传说诞生的故乡. 在旅行的路上, 有些事我们慢慢讲. 有个热情的地方名字叫台湾.
我们将脚步放慢, 聊着天, 在路上. 你行李装满, 远赴他乡的梦想. 我用思念再酝酿, 牢记你的模样, 挥挥手, 再见. 祝你! 旅途平安.
This photography blog has been a way for me to express myself in the way that i haven't been able to do so before while i was doing a high-flyer white collar job. It really helped me to understand and appreciate what has happened in my life. I hope that i will have more valuable experiences to share and will hopefully maintain my blog as long as i can.
I want to thank you for taking the time to read all my travel blog posts so far and follow me on this wonderful journey of growth and discovery. I know we have traveled the world together and learned new customs and traditions. I hope that people will follow in my footsteps and try new experiences. This blog wasn't always meant as travel guide. I also wanted you to learn more about you and yourself. I have always wanted to enrich your knowledge so that you can go out of your comfort zone and explore yourself. So to all the explorers out there, please keep getting to know yourself and all those cool places out there. And also try to take advantage of all the little things you have learned from my photography blog and really appreciate them because you will never know how long you will get to have them. Bon voyage!
