It feels like I’ve been your tour guide since the moment I turned this blog to a photography blog. 90% of the photos I share are snapshots of my hometown. Not to mention, the blog’s name contains a part of my hometown.
If I’m to take the challenge seriously and sctrictly then the photos would be like postcards and touristism brochures and I just don’t know how to do that. My photos are almost always stylized.
My first attempt (and the only, so far) at a photography series was a personal vision of my hometown (Ingrained in the Night), quite biased and personal. I’ll just share some of those photos again here and hopefully you enjoy them.
and these are some of the people of my hometown.
Weekly Photo Challenge: Silence
Silence is every photograph you never took because you did not want to introduce noise to a unique moment in life.
Silence is every photograph you took because you could not express a unique moment in life with noise.
When I checked the weekly photography challenge I was listening to Tim Bowness’ Where You’re Always Been and I thought it could be great to accompany my photo with a verse from the song even though the connection might not be very obvious.
Everything around you
Seems unreal and seems so vast
The playthings of the present
Fading snapshots from the past
You’ll still be here tomorrow
In the places in between
In love with your own sorrow
Where you’ve always been
I have many photos (some of which I have already posted here before) that apply to this week’s challenge more than this one but I wanted to share my photos shot on film for now so there you go.
Portraits aren’t my strongest suit (not even close!) Nevertheless I do enjoy taking photos of my family and especially kids. Below is a photo of my adorably chubby nephew.

States of Mind: Imprisoned Light
We have a few old and traditional houses in our town. I think they were built during World War 2. I’ve never been inside one but I did take photos of their doors. This one is from 1943.
