Describe a photo you have taken
You should say:
Where you took it
When you took the photo What/who is in the photo
And explain how you felt about the photo
I once took a snap shot of Leijun on a flight from Shanghai to Tailand, and it is a great experience for me.
That should be two years ago, when I was on a lone wolf’s vacation to Bangkok by air and you know, it was my first international flight. To say I was a bit excited is quite an understatement, since I took photos here and there right from the beginning of the journey. So how could I miss the chance to capture some great moments from within the plane when we were taking off. I held my iphone aiming at the outside. There were the diminished buildings, roads, and the whole city, and then the touchable sky, the fluffy clouds and the horizon. Then I found it would be nice if I could snap some shots of the cabin, but I knew it was a bit rude. So I stood up and watched around. Oh forgot to mention that it is a budget flight and basically I got stuck in the cramped seat space.
That was when I spot him, a middle-aged blanket-covered man, resting with eyes closed. Yeah, that’s him, Leijun, a dedicated entrepreneur and billionaire, my role model. After seconds of thought, I sneakily took a photo of him like a paparazzi ambushing a super star, since I was so shy and I know I couldn’t possibly summon up courage to really talk to him even I got the rare face to face chance.
So, it is a beautiful moment that I captured and cherished. My business hero, like an ordinary worker on a budget flight for a business trip. In the photo, he is tired but peaceful. Sometimes I will fixate on the photo and wonder what he was thinking: a great business opportunity, a step forward the goal, the mistakes made. I didn’t post this photo online but someone else did. There is a lot of talking about him why take a budget flight and an economical class. Lately he gave a simple but convincing explanation in an interview for him never taking first class and booking in five star hotel: I am CEO of a start-up and I cant set an opposite example when what we need most is endeavour and enterprise. That says all.
