Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
My country changed so rapidly over the past few decades, and I am not going along with it.
Although streams in my village have been transformed into U-shaped gutters by an agricultural policy, I see more abandoned rice fields every year.
As I go to the downtown, it has become one of those colorless, boring towns which are designed by officials.
My confusion (and some sort of anger) toward such changes is probably urging me to take pictures of my childhood imagery.
