Warrnambool Host 住家

上圖是Katherine Stewart與Don Stewart夫婦,他們是Christine老公Aidan的父母,而我則是來澳洲參加Christine的婚禮,Stewart老家在Warrnambool(距離墨爾本約三小時車程),我們一行人就在Stewart老家過聖誕。

 

Katherine與Don真係甜到入心,兩人都善解人意、和藹可親,也是虔誠天主教徒,謝謝二人開車載我們,感激!

 

畫這幅畫的時候,我們正在看美國喜劇Malcolm in the Middle,Don看得太投入而手舞足蹈,又將手上的杯子放了在地下,我不識趣地多次提醒「要乖乖坐好」,Don慨嘆:「這(做模特)比我想像中更難啊!」

 

Katherine很有愛心,早前才開放自己的家,讓難民住了幾天,還上了地區報紙;不時就社會議題在地方政府門前拉橫額、示威抗議,有心有力,Katherine老是取笑我:「又在拍照了。」

我回香港後,她特地發訊問我:「我想買相機啊,你用緊咩牌子?」結果她真的買了一部單反,在fb不亦樂乎地貼相,嗯,大概Katherine一直都對攝影有興趣,我這個攝影狂只是引子,忠於自己的興趣,真能影響他人的話,與有榮焉呢。

 

最令我難忘的是,Katherine是我在網上賣明信片的第一個顧客,也是第一次「虛擬」網絡為「現實」世界帶來實質金錢回報,謝謝您的支持!

 

 

This is Katherine and Don Stewart. They are mum and dad of Aidan. Aidan is Christine’s husband and I came to Australia for Christine’s wedding. The Stewarts were living in Warrnambool ( 3 hours’ drive from Melbourne). We spent the Christine with the Stewarts.

 

Katherine and Don are so sweet. They were both very kind-hearted and friendly and devout Catholics.

 

We were watching the American TV comedy ‘Malcolm in the Middle’ when Katherine and Don modeling for this picture. Don enjoyed the comedy very much and he kept waving his hands happily. And he even put his cup on the floor… I was (too) straight and kept asking him ‘to sit still’. Don sighed and said, ‘Oh, this (modeling) was much harder than I thought!’

 

Katherine was a good person. She opened her home and invited the refugees to stay with them for a few days. This even on the paper.

She and her friends would demonstrate in front of the local government court for different social issues.

 

She always laughed at me, ‘Oh, you’re taking photos again…’

I went back to Hong Kong when I finished my Australia trip and she messaged me and asked, ‘I want to buy a camera! Which brand are you using?’

And she DID really buy a nice camera. She took lots of photos and putting them on fb happily.

Um, I guessed Katherine like photography and my act as a crazy photographer was just a detonation. I am so happy if I really did affect somebody (in a good way) by loyal to my passion!

 

And Katherine was my first online customer when I first started to sell my postcards on the internet. That was the first time a real action was taken in the ‘real’ world triggered by the ‘fake’ internet.

Katherine, thanks for your support!
