Earth of plenty

The last few months I was lucky enough to spend some time in Nature's lap. I could see how mother Earth took care of her child (- Nature) and made her feel good.

Transient

From time to time she washed her and showered her. For the holidays she dressed her into white. With the wind she helped the Nature to fix her hair. And with the singing birds she gently woke her up. When you are so close to this magnificant being, like in a womb of mother Earth, you don't have any words left. Quietly you listen to the beating of big heart, decanting of blood (the rivers and streams) through the blood vessels, surrendering to the rhythm which takes you away. The time flies, but you feel fulfilled and happy - in the world of abundance, the world of plenty.

I hope, the day, when I will be able to share this love to Earth with kids and you, is near. That we all get closer to Nature, to caress her with our creative hands and to whisper tender lullabies to her ear. The time in the womb, in silence, is almost over..., the birth is near by and hopefully there will be enough time for new experiments, explorations - with the camera or without it. Although, I must admit, the silence is so full of rich words..., that it is hard to leave this safe and fulfilling world.

The Earth of plenty is round and it never ends. It gives, gives, gives in so many different ways, that we would finally see, understand, take and give - like she does. I've never met such a creative, universal being as the Earth is. Therefore, dear Earth, all the best and let me touch you and feel you for many, many more years. Thank you!

Stories on the walls

Have you ever strolled a city, 'reading' the stories of the city's walls? Sometimes there are just empty windows with cold looks, open doors with inviting stairs, and sometimes you can find walls with colorful, rich and exciting stories on them.

Transient

I don't see many stories in the modern cities anymore. Just graffiti. No artists employed to decorate the facades, no creative stories to share with visitors, no space for imagination...

I wonder where did all the stories go? 

Luckily there are people who are writing their stories on  the walls 'for free'. Great stories, soulful stories... My favourite is artist JR whose wish is to use art to turn the world inside out. He is an inspiration how to make our place on Earth a little better.

Doesn't he make you wonder how would your story look like on the walls of your town? Be creative!

Inspiring click

People say all sorts of things about what makes a great photograph. They argue about the photo gear, composition, light etc. I think it's all in the click.

Transient

If you know your camera (no matter how big or small the camera is) and if you listen to your inner voice, then you know exactly what to do in a particular moment. You know when to click. 

Transient

That's why I don't like 'staged' pictures, pictures made with all sorts of extra equipment, pictures so perfect that you find them too perfect, unreal... For me, photographs are experiments - experiments with perspective, view, light, expressions etc., etc.

If I lived in a city, I would go on the streets and just click, click, click. Like Vivian Maier did years ago (this photo is one of my favourites, but of course there are many more). Exploring, clicking, experimenting... Not making a big science out of it, but still dedicating the entire soul to every click. Taking pictures of the beautiful 'here and now'.

Life is made of clicks, inspiring clicks. We should all focus on the good ones and create a visual board we want to see. Enjoy!

Colorfuuul

Today we've painted on the white Winter's canvas with bright, happy colors!

Transient

We tricked her, pretending we're somebody else...

Transient

We played games and laughed...

Transient

We had a healthy Carnival lunch...

Transient

and then...

Transient

we let our spring wishes fly up in the sky!

I believe it's not the noise that drives away the Winter, but the colors! I hope you had a colorfuuuuul day, too!
