Travel Videos

旅游视频

Intro 简介

到一个新的地方旅游是如此炫酷的体验,以至我们常常希望旅游会永远持续下去。但是,无论是什么样的旅游,总会有黯然登机返家的那一天。

有些人会用摄影机记录他们的行程,希望借此使自己的旅行持续下去。但如果在游览行程中总有一台摄影机出现在面前的话,那恐怕也算不上是我们心目中的完美假期了。另外,被强迫观看数小时的旅游视频也绝对不会是朋友们理想中的娱乐。

戴尔(Dale)很快要去度假了,关于是否要录制旅行视频,听听他和梅森(Mason)的讨论。

Dialogue 对话

Dale:  So Mason, I’m going on a trip in about four weeks from now.

Mason:  Oh yeah?

Dale:  Yeah. Now I’m thinking since, you know, it’s kind of a family trip, I was gonna video it. But I don’t know if it’s a good thing.

Mason:  You know, it’s whatever your taste is, right? But I think you want to make sure to savor the experience, like don’t forget to experience firsthand while you’re trying to capture it on the film. So…

Dale:  You mean, like focusing on the camera rather than the situation or the environment that we’re actually in.

Mason:  Are you in the moment, or are you watching the moment, you know?

Dale:  Oh, through the camera. Yeah, that’s a tough one, because I also feel like if I don’t record I’m like, shoot, I should have had that on camera!

Mason:  Yeah. You know, I mean what are you going to do, become the next viral hit on YouTube?

Dale:  That’s true, that’s true.

Mason:  I mean, yeah, maybe you will.

Dale:  Is it better to just take pictures?

Mason:  I like the pictures. I think that’s my compromise. So I’m actually going on a trip sometime soon and I might get myself a big fancy camera. And guess what? It takes video too just in case I need to cover my bases.

Dale:  And then you just edit it and make it really nice.
