Wuhan is so cute 当高楼变成童话积木,武汉居然这么可爱

当我站在高处迎望这城市时 脑海里总有一个大胆的想法 如果眼前的人,物都变城玩具积木 那将是多么有趣 When viewing the city from a high place, I always have this idea: how interesting would it be if people and things in front of me turned into toy block?

作为一名摄影师,最怕不敢尝试

Afraid of trying is the most terrifying act for a photographer,

于是我拿起相机,用移轴摄影的方式

I picked up my camera and used tilt-shift photography

记录下武汉这座城市的每个角落

To record every corner of Wuhan.

当高楼大厦与钢筋巨兽变成迷你的形态

When high-rise buildings and steel behemoths are reduced to miniature forms,

有趣的现象发生了

Something interesting happens:

整个城市变成了一座玩具小镇

the whole city appears to transform into a toy town.

每一寸土地每一座建筑

Every inch of land and every building

都染上了童话般的色彩

Are dyed with fairy tale colors.

突然发现,滚滚长江东逝水的气魄里

Suddenly, from the momentum and vigor of the Yangtze River,

粗犷磅礴的武汉

the once rough and majestic Wuhan

变得小巧精致

becomes small and delicate.

灵光乍现的梦幻一瞥里

The world’s leading multilingual information processing and service provider

In a dreamy glimpse:

武汉,你真可爱呀

 Wuhan is so adorable.

来,把手机横过来

Grab your phone & cross over

看一座庞大的积木迷宫

to view a huge maze of building blocks

 

👇

 

长江与桥
Yangtze River and bridges

在城市中间呼吸
Breathe in the heart of the city.

沿江两岸 Both banks of the Yangtze

 

朦胧月色下,暖黄和深蓝色交相呼应

知音号停靠在岸边,来来往往的船只鸣着汽笛

仿佛在说:嘿!美女,穿的这么靓

等下是要去SPACE蹦迪吗!

南岸嘴

阳光洒过江面

In the moonlight, warm yellow and dark blue echo each other.

趸船平静的纹丝不动,等待着小船靠岸
The  barges lie motionless,

轻轨汽车
waiting for small boats to dock.

 

大智路
硚口路地铁站

一号线列车穿梭在城市的新旧建筑之间

The nostalgia brought by line one shuttling between old and new buildings in the city

想起小时候拼装有轨列车玩具时的美好时光

brings back fond childhood memories of playing with railcar trains.
站在天台观察列车来来往往

When standing on a rooftop and watching trains come and go,

发现两辆列车相遇的几率是五分之一

 the probability of two trains meeting is (as low as) one-fifth.

当他们相遇的那一刹那我拿起相机咔擦一下

When they do meet, pick up a camera and capture the moment.

我们相遇的几率又是多少呢?

What are the chances of us meeting?

 

大智路 Dazhi Road
中北路 Zhongbei Road

 

中南路

红灯路口

At a red light intersection,

仿佛看见了小时候珍藏的汽车模型

Thoughts of same car model collected during childhood come to mind.

魔方大厦

筑起钢筋森林

“Rubik’s Cube” Building & the

construction of a “steel forest”.

 

西北湖 Northwest Lake
中北路 Zhongbei Road

高处眺望,这座城市错落有致

The city is a patchwork of places when viewed from above,

就像是用乐高积木堆积起来一样

just like when stacking up Lego bricks.

中山大道平安大厦 Zhongshan Avenue Ping An Building

矗立在中山大道21年的平安大厦

After 21 years, the Ping An Building on Zhongshan Avenue still stands.夏天夕阳灿烂,楼顶金字塔发出耀眼光芒

Sunsets are bright in Summer, and the pyramids of roofs shine brightly:

早已成为武汉人忘不掉的“乡愁”

a long-standing “homesickness” Wuhan citizens can’t forget.

红砖房林立

Red brick houses

80年代老胶片

like old 80s films.

 

水果湖 Fruit Lake

红瓦青砖,早已成为时代的记忆

Grey bricks and red tiles have long been the memory of the times

市井街道

City street

生活在高楼之间开始

Living among tall buildings

人流如织,暖黄色的灯光照着微醺的路人

So many people, and a warm yellow light shines on passers-by.

保成路夜市 Baocheng Road Night Market

若不告诉你这是武汉

If you aren’t told this is Wuhan,

你一定会误以为自己在香港的庙街夜市

you might mistake it for Temple Street Night Market in Hong Kong.

长江大桥 Yangtze River Bridge

路灯下骑车人的身影

The silhouette of a rider under a street light

让我想起以前爷爷载着我回家的情景

Is a reminder of a childhood memory of being carried home by my grandfather.

车流密集

Traffic jams:

下班路上堵堵堵

It’s a very busy time when people are making it home after work.

 

武珞路 Wuluo Road

下班晚高峰,堵堵堵!

Peak congestion during the after-work rush hours!

湛蓝夜幕降临

Darkness falls…

万家灯火

a myriad twinkling lights from the city.

长江大桥桥头堡 Bridgehead of the Yangtze River Bridge

站在大桥上看江水滔滔

Standing on a bridge to view the Yangtze,

凝望远处,星火斑斓

staring into the distance.

京汉大道
西北湖  Northwest Lake

万家灯火,亮蓝色和金黄色的灯光交织在一起

The myriad of twinkling lights-bright blue and golden lights all intertwined.

湖边,路灯照亮了夜归人的路

At a lake-side, street lights shine a light on the way home.

远处的“帝国大厦”在朦胧月色中格外挺拔

The “Imperial Mansion” in the distance stands tall and upright in the moonlight.

汉口沿江 Hankou along the Yangtze歌舞升平的游轮划过平静江面

The ascension of a music-charged cruise ship crossing a calm river…

身后高楼的灯光犹如斑斓星光

The lights behind the tall buildings are like starry lights:

霓虹交错,五颜六色的灯光渲染出城市轮廓

neon interlaced and colorfully revealing an outline of the city.

带不走的,是紫红色的晚霞

What you can’t take away is the purple sunset glow.

绿树生长

Green trees growing,

吞噬钢筋高楼

swallowing the high-rise steel.

东湖 East Lake

奇妙的建筑轮廓

Wonderful architectural outlines

在丁达尔效应下显得壮观而有魅

力look spectacular and attractive under the Tyndall effect

一艘“宇宙飞船”即将从东湖起飞

A “spaceship” is about to take off from East Lake,

飞跃星河,探索未知

On to a voyage of discovery in outer space.

半圆的建筑让我想起学生时代的量角器

The semi-circular architecture is a reminder of the high school protractor era.

东湖 East Lake

建筑散落在树丛中

Buildings scattered between trees

似乎下一秒就要被自然吞噬

Creates an impression that they’re moments away from being swallowed by nature.

钢筋水泥在这里停下脚步

Reinforced concrete stops here and

与自然相交融,和谐而共生

Together with nature, harmony and a sense of co-existence,

微缩如积木玩具的城市

The “Lego city”
在吉光片羽中透露出熟悉地方的美好

Reveals the beauty of a familiar place.

在融入市井生活的小小的空间里

“In a small space that is integrated into city life

用一栋房子作为载体

Use a house to transport you

让老汉口穿越百年的沧桑记忆

And let the old Hankou pass through the transitions of life for a hundred years.

现代都市人对于家的一百种幻想

One hundred kinds of dream homes,
与德芭彩虹书店的美阅空间

with a beautiful reading space & popular bookstore

微缩交融在一起

blended together in a tiny form.

让每一个踏进其中的人

May it allow everyone stepping into it

都能重新发掘属于武汉的

To rediscover

不同的时光,同一种美好

the same kind of beauty found in Wuhan’s different lifetimes.”
生活在武汉的每一天

Everyday living in Wuhan

都是对细微美好的再一次重新认识

Is a re-recognition of a subtle beauty

在街头巷尾的灵光乍现里

And an epiphany at the end of an alley.

想象未来

Imagine the future

城市与家的美好模样

And the beauty of the city and home
