Yooni is in Sheffield rather than Beijing this year, studying for a Master’s degree in landscape architecture at the University of Sheffield and travelling in Europe, recording her memories on Instagram. That’s where we saw, and fell for, her photos. “The style of my photos is always changing,” Yooni told us, while denying that she is anything more than an amateur point-and-shoot iPhone snapper. “I’m planning to go to Germany and Copenhagen, where there are a lot of architecture projects. Sometimes I go to see those, or other times I follow people’s Instagrams, see cool places to go.”

Yooni’s favourite place to go in Sheffield is “a small field behind the train station. All the flowers were out there the other day. “I walked down the road from there to a little road junction. It’s geometrical and interesting, and there was a short time when there was no traffic so I took a photo. Just a few seconds.” Yooni doesn’t know what she’ll do after graduating; she is trying to find time to look for internships in Europe, or maybe she’ll work in Beijing for a year or two, then come back to the UK to study another Masters or PhD.

Or maybe she’ll stay here, in the parks. “When I first got to Sheffield, I was amazed by all the small parks,” she says. “In China we don’t have that many parks, and they are filled with people, especially when the weather is sunny. “But in Sheffield most parks are very tranquil. I thought, wow, what a lovely life, if I could stay here for a very long time.”

張菁今年在 Sheffield 而不是北京,她在University of Sheffield 唸景觀設計的碩士課程、在歐洲旅遊,且用了Instagram 紀錄下回憶。於是我們見到了、沈淪進了,
她的照片。“我照片的風格不斷在改變。
”張菁告訴我們,卻又邊說自己只是個不專業的iPhone 拍攝者而已。“我正在計畫去德國跟哥本哈根,那裏有許多建築計畫。
有時候我去看看那些,其他時候我在
Instagram 上尋找想去的地方。”

而張菁在 Sheffield 最喜歡的地方?“車站後的一個小原野,那天所有的花都開了。
從那我走向一個擁有幾何美地、有趣地交叉路口,而有那麼一小陣子是沒有車輛的於是我拍了張照片。就幾秒而已。”

對於畢業後的事張菁還不確定,她正在歐洲努力的尋找著實習機會,也許她會回北京工作一兩年後再來到英國唸另一個碩士或PhD。又或者她會就這麼留在這裡,
留在這裡的公園裡。

“剛來時我對所有的小公園們感到驚奇。”她說。“在中國我們沒有如此多的公園,
當天氣好的時候更是充滿了人們。在
Sheffield,大部份的公園都是靜謐的,
多麽美好的生活,我心想,如果我能在待在這裡很久很久的話。”
