Psychochromatic Redemption

A bit of everything, just to keep my erroneous mind busy.

Unexpected ideas popping into my mind

A moody day

December 5th,

That is exactly how I feel today, but I quite like how this image turned out.

Disconnect before it’s too late

Are we heading toeards 1984? Not back in time, but Orwell’s masterpiece. I’ve read an article on The Mind Unleashed and got goosebumbs. It’s not enough that at times reality seems like a horrible nightmare, soon we will be living in a dystopian society.
How can this be possible and why are people not protesting? Have we become too weak to protest and too unaware of the manipulation and control? Has the Internet subdued us in such a way that we’ll do anything to be online, to keep ourselves updated?
And to add to this the fact, Chinese scientists have created the 500 MegaPixels camera so Big Brother doesn’t lose sight of anyone’s action. I am speechless and most of all, worried. Where are we heading as a society? How long until the other governments will follow the Chinese example? Is there an escape? Maybe the Amazon forest if it’s not going to burn down…

Meanwhile, just try to spend more time outdoors and disconnect from the online world from time to time.

When I am tired…

I sleep and don’t do much. It seems that I’ve been tired for quite some time as  haven’t written anything in such a long time. It would be fancy to say I have been travelling and spending my time on a sandy beach, but the truth is I’ve been busy with work and projects.

One of them is an Instagram project where I show photographs from the places I love, places that are dear to my heart, either because I consider them home or because they’ve changed me in a way or another. So if sometimes you are bored and have nothing to do, search @hip.travels on Instagram and you can join me in the living like a local experience.

This is a photo I took on my day off when I decided to explore the areas around Paphos, Cyprus. This is taken in Coral Bay.

Once upon a time

Once upon a time, there was kindness. Once upon a time there was respect. Once upon a time there was gratitude. But everything was once upon a time. Nowadays people seem to have lost the meaning of these words. They are not a part of the majority’s vocabulary. What happen in 20 years? Where did it all go? I am frustrated and worried about the world we are living in.

Nearly one year ago I came to this country because I was curious and because I wanted to try something new. Got a job in education and was quite ecstatic for a while. But then it hit me. I started to see the cracks in the walls, the dirt under the rug, the tears behind the perfect smile. I started to realize that the educational system has so many flaws I could write books about them and that the free education system is merely a joke. Joke on us, the teachers. We are underpaid to deal with behavior issues that need to be dealt at home, to be hit by students and to chase them around the school. Learning takes many steps back and is actually left behind all that chaos. And then we are asked for progress, for pieces after pieces of evidence, for better results.

Therefor I conclude in saying that a job in education has stopped being rewarding and empowering. Parents ask so much and do so little, children are rude and have no willingness to learn whatsoever and we are left broken, penniless and with regrets.

Ramblings over a cup of tea

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!

Monochrome days

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:

Think before you judge

Thinking is difficult, that’s why most people judge. -Carl Jung

We live in a divided society and world, as sometimes is much easier to judge and blame, than understand. Have we always been like this? Probably yes, but, back in those days, there wasn’t any Social Media or Internet  so no one, except your close ones, knew your opinions.

What I find strange – and had the urge to write about it – is that people not only judge, but also try to convince you their way is “the right” way. It’s like you can’t or you don’t know how to live your own life. Some people feel the need to give you directions like the GPS that keeps telling you to turn left, even when you know that road is closed. So you listen, try to ignore it, but at one point you just want to throw it out of the window. Same with people, even though it would be literally harder to throw somebody out of the window,  better/easier leave the room.

99% of the time I understand people and their  reasoning, but it’s getting really hard when they can’t understand me and my way of living life. And sometimes I question  my own sanity  and put myself in the scenery they want to create for me.  But guess  what? It makes me quite unhappy and one of the greatest  lessons my dad taught me, is that if you don’t feel good in a place or situation you have to leave that place  or situation. So I get rid of their  ideas and continue with mine, because  they are the ones that suit me the best.

So go ahead and live your own ideas and own thoughts. Be free to be who you want to be as you only have one life and you don’t know how long it will be. People will always judge you, therefore live a life that makes you happy . 😉

First day, endless possibilities

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.

 

Happiest Day 

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.
