Transformations

It was a long, beautiful summer - a good one for taking pictures and not so good one to sit behind the screen and update the blog regularly. Oh, well, let's hope things will get back to normal again now that the days are shorter and cooler...

So today, I'd like to take you on a special journey - to the place where the past meets the future...

It is colorful.

It is melodical.

It is happy, although in pain.

It is mysterious...

...and serious.

It is brave...

...and it is strong.

It is modest...

...and proud.

And now imagine 'you' - how would you look like when transformed by the past?? Summer is almost over and it's time to put ourselves together again. What will you choose?

History is history

My history likes to play with my present. Old things and events are popping up althought thaey should have stayed in archives for a year or even two. But they make waves on the sea level or they even muddy the bottom of the sea.

Thought No.7 of Giving thanks, giving gifts: choose imagination.

Let the history stays in the history. Let yourself into the unlimited imagination and leave the past and the past experiences in the past. Don't let that something from the past restrain your development. Imagination is open for all ideas, for all fresh and magnificant experiences and realisations. Jump into the imagination - you will notice that it has no end, no limitations.

Enjoy!

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!

Transient

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

Serendipity

I love books! More and more I'm interested in the old ones - there's something about that yellowish paper and oldish scent that makes me forget about reality and makes me jump into the world of magic and imagination... always, even now, when I'm older...

Transient

But that's not all. I have another book-related obsession: words. I split them, create new ones, play with them, look for their source, write them down if I really like them... One of these words is: 'serendipity'. Every time I see it or say it, I see sparkles all around me like in a fairytale. I feel freedom, I feel like I could do everything, I feel light and excited. I feel like I could fly! 

So today, I am thankful for the books, the paper ones, because they entice me again and again with their inviting scent right into the magical world of imagination. And thanks for all the beautiful, fascinating words that make my life rich and interesting. And may I dedicate this post to a little girl Oja, whose wonderful vocabulary made my last year's school days super special. I miss them! 

Question #4:

Do you have a special, 'your' word as well? What makes it special?
