I've chosen the 'nicer' pages.
As Shihui has pointed out, these are actually taken in the vicinity of my house. I'm moving soon, and this house that has accompanied me as I age, now, will be torn down (I'm quite sure). So, to me, this whole "Vases Anthologia" idea has a few meanings:
(1) The Vases itself was founded at the peak of our adoloscence. In a way, we're 1985 babies turning legally adults in 2006, and this is like a closure, or the end of something. Perhaps even, the final group photo in the next year and a half that Hanis is overseas.
(2) I am moving.
At 21, I'm moving out of the space I grew up in. In many ways, it is a lot like the Vases itself. We've all grown out of our adoloscence and teenage angst. But thinking of it, we've maintained the crux of our youthfulness and energy: Sheila's whining, Rohai's whining (uh huh, yes), Haireez's coolness, Liwen's child-like insistence, Pamela's semi-consciousness, Hanis' craziness, Sharon's wide-eyed curiousity.. And I've never grown out of my acne.
(3) It is an Anthology of being ex-young - a transition into the irreversible 2*'s.
If you thought the above was prententious bullshit, maybe you might want to try to enjoy the pictures.
And the centrespread of the booklet:
This is becoming such a photoblog.
