Walls

 

Today’s photo is titled Walls. And yes, I consider the sky a wall too (or anything concrete and that isn’t endless space!) because I consider my world a bubble. Overall, The photo is a rendition of the future that I see. It might be sunny up there but to me it looks fake.

[Journal] Impromptu post 12/01/17

Back to wordpress after a long absence.

I’m sort of lost in finding my way through both the material world and the virtual. I have lost sight of what’s outside the walls. I can only see the ghosts of things now and their fleeting interval of existence.

I indulge myself in my arts feeding off of this negative state. Trying to determine the path through color tones and language nuances even if most of the time they betray me.

I end up fading into a self I never knew before.

[Journal]Picks from Nov. 8th 2016

I love going out and taking long walks in autumn. It’s just that I don’t always do that even though I love it. I keep asking myself why. I guess I’m lazy, perhaps?! Anyways, yesterday was a good day for a hike. And I finally hit the road – the mountain road

I got my new mirrorless camera to enjoy along with a mixed playlist of Tim Bowness and Gazpacho songs.

As soon as clouds covered the sun my finger on the shutter button went crazy! I picked this photo to share from over 15 pictures. Don’t think it’s the best one. The rest are just duplicates and variations of the same scene. (a waste of shutter actuations!)

Soon after, it rained briefly I doubled back to the main road and what do you know? A rainbow! Unfortunately, I got distracted by a shepherd who thought I was lost and kept asking me questions. Well eventually, I got this decent shot of the rainbow.

The shepherd didn’t want me to take a picture of him. I settled for the sheep.

We kept talking for a while until it was time for me to go home. He was a nice guy. I wanted to shoot a portrait of him but like all people in my town; they’re simply not open to the idea yet. It’s understandable (but also a shame.)

Took those on my way back. As soon as I stepped into the house, the rain fell as if a dam in the sky broke!

I got comfortable indoors and spent the best part of the night editing photos on Lightroom.

Until next time. ^_^

Impromptu Untitled 22/03/2016

I direct my sight to the stars,
lonely in their place of rest,
a night sky, painted by grief.

so faint, so dim,
like the last thoughts
of a broken man.

They sink into the void.
Their weavings dissipate
leaving my eyes blank
and my heart wrenching
in unnamed novel feelings.

now
I comprehend
a shade of darkness
I never knew before.

inspired by a moment of serenity that turned to an unfamiliar feeling of uneasiness I had while lying on my back on the roof of the house watching the night sky.
