Orange Playground by Lina Chu

Sometimes I use my camera to capture moments of cultural or environmental significance and, other times, photography allows me to look at the world with a child’s eyes and explore it out of genuine curiosity. Slot canyons appear to be a perfect playground. One where you can gain some wisdom, just like children learn when playing.

I’ll share three lessons I got from the slot canyons:
One - be patient, perseverant, and only employ soft power. For millions of years, water has been carving deep gorges out from the tiniest cracks in the sandstone.

Two - be playful and adventurous. Delve into the unknown around every corner, keep following the path, and enjoy things that come along your way.

Three - light inside us makes us more beautiful. Just like the sunbeams that reveal the bright colors of the canyon walls.

What do you think you would learn from the slot canyons?
