When you are taking photographs with a traditional camera, you hardly now what will come up… and I LOVE it! Nowadays, you can just use your phone to take ‘that’ picture and say “bah, it is good enough”, but with the traditional black and white camera, is a whole new world! I was walking near my house and I saw this building and the sun was shining so much… When I entered the building, the first thing I saw was this corridor, illuminated by the sun and I thought “I need this picture”… so I took it.
I love the result and I loved the process of developing the photograph. It is both relaxing and exciting!
There is a stranger behind the curtain, someone who normally doesn’t get out. This person feels safe there, where no one can enter.
It is time for the curtain to rise…
Today it’s been a tough day. I woke up and I felt I wouldn’t fit anywhere in the world. I went for a walk to a park near my house, and saw all these people having fun and enjoying the day, but I was just thinking “what the hell am I doing here? I have so many pending matters, so many things I could and should be doing just right now, and here I am, looking at the flowers and regretting for the wasted day…” We all have hard days, days that pass in the blink of an eye.
It is dark and cold outside now, and all I can think of is this petal I found lost today…
How beautiful can the world be? I walk across this tree every single day and my thoughts don’t let me see anything but the horizon. But today I stopped and stared at it. I even lost my train, but it was worth it. This small moment made my day.
We all need some minutes a day to communicate with ourselves, otherwise we can miss important feelings.
