R.I.P Nunu :(

My aunt’s cat Nunu passed away last night. He’s been with us for 15 years.  This was the last photo I took of him around a month ago. . There is so much I want say but for some reason I don’t want to write it.

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge 24/07/2017

I’m so glad I found this challenge! (Thank you, Cee!) I have tons of photos that don’t belong and sometimes I end up doing something good with them in processing but still can’t categorize which makes me hesitant about posting them. Well, now I can under the umbrella of Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge! Banzai!!

So let me get on with it!

A few months ago, we were painting our holiday house by the beach. Of course, since shooting everyday and especially the out-of-the-daily-norm events is my second nature, I took a lot of photos of the activity and everything else no matter how insignificant. Later at post-processing, I make a small collection of them, recreating the whole experience only by photos. ultimately, within the collection, the photo below would make sense but alone, it doesn’t really belong and it’s meaningless.

Here’s another one from the streets of my hometown. I guess, it’ just… lines?! ><

Minutes Before Sunrise

I miss that period of my life where I didn’t need an alarm to wake me up at 5am nor do did I have to snatch my body back from the bed! That’s what I do these days to wake up early and have a moment of quiet and peace before reality strikes a few hours later.

Impromptu Poem 19/07/2017

I wander in but one form

without a truth and into the trees.

My eyes rise.

the blinding sunlight is stifled

by a mess of branches that

only leaves regret at my own

entanglement

with life, with minds, with hearts…

 

I keep walking

clad in a mosaic of shades.

With each step I take,

It gives me a new form –

but only of darkness.

 

It’s been a long time since I wrote poetry. One of the things I regret: not sticking to poetry. It’s been very therapeutic for me.

Picks from July 11th 2017

I was on my way to the beach around 5am and I took these photos. I kept their white balance as is because I like them that way except for the last two which I tweaked a bit.

I also shot a Tri-X400 roll at the same time but it’s not developed yet. It was just a test. I’m not sure that that film is suitable for sunrise photos. I tried to avoid direct light so I hope I’ll get a few good ones.
