I woke up feeling tired and sleepy today. It’s already wednesday and I realised that I did not post anything here since friday — whaaa? Well, days fly by me like rivers flow to the ocean and I’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t had any time to sit in front of the computer nor edit photos with the iphone. When I hit the pillow at night I can barely keep my eyes open for more than just a couple of minutes… Life isn’t for the faint of heart. But it’s okay, I’m not complaining. Just making conversation.
I recently acquired a copy of “a year of mornings” by the girls from 3191 miles apart, and I was so struck by the simple and beautiful nature of the photos that it made me think about what I’ve been doing so far with photography. I never intended (nor do I intend to) be something special in the photography field, but when I do something I make sure that I at least try my best to make it likeable…for me.
That is not to say I don’t care about others opinions, of course they matter, otherwise I wouldn’t be writing this or bother posting it around the web, but sometimes I feel that I lose myself in the amidst of everything and everyone around me — That happens to me a lot in life too…I’m getting better though — so I need to make sure that everything I bring to the table is 100% me. And that is not an easy task to do.
The photos in the book are honest and simple, and that’s exactly what I want to portray in my photos. So I’m letting you all know that I’m re-thinking my thoughts for photography, trying to achieve something that I enjoy, and making sure that it comes through in whatever image I may capture.
Having said that, I also want to let you all know that I’ve got something in the oven for the next posts…nothing fancy, just a bit of reviewing on simple things.
Hope you all have a great day and let’s hope the rain goes away.
