There are so many memories that come back to life through the lyrics of a song, through words that carry you back in a certain time and place, that can never be re – edited because copies are not worth extra effort. You can’t go back in time, but when memories are resurrected they remind us of an older version of ourselves. And older becomes wiser in time and lead to present where you are about to make new memories. It seems like life is made out of beats and lyrics, pictures, snapshots of random moments that become special only as the time goes by. We live through music and images like in a movie that describes the life of someone else that turns out to be us in the end. So live, love, create through verses and never skip a beat. Life is amazing!
Freedom has its price
Are you ready to pay it?
Think before acting.
Must admit I really like this city. It’s vibrant, interesting and it doesn’t stop to amaze me. Here are some more images in timeless black and white:
Here I am back on the road, this time moving to big city. A small town girl, living in a lonely world, like the song said, came to life in this amazing new place. Well, not sure how amazing it will turn out to be, but so far , so good. Must say I like it here.
First day in city centre with hubby, we got tricked by Google maps and ended up in the same spot not 1, not 2 but 5 times. My feet were in pain at the end of the day. After all it was an interesting experience as I constantly snapped freely around neighbourhoods, to remember where I got lost. ☺
Here’s some proof I ‘very been there. Sending you some English vibe from Manchester.
The thin line between
Is about to snap.
What do you do when you lose your words? When they become insignificant as you learn to express yourself through other medium. What then? Do you give up? I don’t, but I speak and write less and observe more. That’s how I discovered photography, observing more, learning to see differently. It wasn’t easy at first, but everything takes time to process. And I guess you can’t really lose your words, but you can lose the need to use them. So you use them less and less and listen and observe more. Maybe that is a new step in human existence…
I knew photography was special to me in a way words cannot explain. I knew that, the moment I held my camera for the first time. I felt whole, like never before. I felt complete. And today, I know the feeling was real. I know this is part of me, the part that needed to be discovered, the part that was crying to be heard. And I listened to it. Glad I did.
Today I won. My first photography award. It’s not much, 2nd Place in National Award at Sony World Photography Awards but it’s the world to me in terms of photography. I knew this was an award winning photograph the moment I took it, but never dreamt so big. After all, I started photography exactly 1 year and 1 month ago and this is a great and wonderful surprise.
