Blurred Vision – Lost

Hello again!

it’s been a while! (It seems that I’ve been saying that a lot in my recent posts! Of course, I post once every few months or so… )

Life knows how to shew a person then spit him out, I can tell you that! (ok, maybe that’s a bit too dramatic for my case. it sure feels like it though.)

I’ve always felt lost, it’s been one of my many struggles trying to deal with uncertainly and lack of determination. Recently, that feeling strengthened itself and took more of mine than ever before.

I don’t want to go through my negativity in detail here. I know nobody wants to get depressed. I just thought I’d share a couple of my recent photos that perhaps do better than my words.

No post-processing done. set up the camera to B&W with a slight increase of contrast.

My laptop is broken so I had/have no way of working on RAWs anymore. I got the idea of going back to basics (Well, as basic as I could afford; I’d have preferred a couple of Tri-X 400 rolls but no resources where I live so I had to settle with digital JPG.)

I wanted to shoot without intention or vision (really, really difficult!), Something will come out of me and into the photos one way or another and that what I was looking for. I believe I was successful at least in the photos above.

The Texture of Nature

As much as I love nature, nature photography isn’t really the first category I go to. Having said that, Nature is all I can photograph most of the time. When submitting to that fact and also the fact that my style relies on texture, It was easy to mix those two and produce photos of nature that I can call mine.

 

A Home for Thoughts

“The plane of thoughts is a haunting place. In my mind, thoughts are so close yet so distant. They are mine and they are not. They roam in an empty space ruled by a texture of chaos.
That is where I’ve always been, a home of thoughts.”

A Home for Thoughts is a coincidental creation but also I believe that my preferences in photography or any other field are heavily influenced by something deeper than what I consciously aim to achieve.

Most of the time I take photos randomly. I rarely prepare for a photograph. When I’m taking photos, I simply trust that somehow I’m being guided. While I’m processing my photos, I dive into them and let them tell me what they’re about. Sometimes, I even discover bits about myself that I didn’t notice before.

In this series, the photographs are so simple yet to me they mean more than what’s within the frame. They’re a story of how I live and a manifestation of my philosophy. For  me it is a home of thoughts; to you, it is a home for thoughts, hoping that you will see beyond its apparent simplicity and project your own thoughts and ideas into that empty space.
