I’ve titled this post Home as I meant for these photographs to evoke the feeling of cosiness and comfort of your home.
I forgot to share with you that I bought a cactus.
It’s the first plant I ever bought in my adult life. I figured a cactus will be easy to look after. This photograph is two months old but the cactus is still thriving, so at least I know I’m more nurturing than a desert.
I bought a cactus. A week later it died. And I got depressed, because I thought, Damn. I am less nurturing than a desert.Demetri Martin
Now you can’t say I haven’t done it.
The piece of blue tack is larger than the country on the map.
On another note, about this question I get:
Where are you from?
Yes, I know I have an accent. Believe me, nobody hates that accent more than me. It is not possible for you to be the one who hates that accent more than I do myself. If I could somehow not have that accent, I would not have it. If I could have three wishes from a genie in a bottle, one of them would be to speak like a native English speaker.
Try to have at least one full conversation with a person who has that accent. At least try to find out their name. It’s bad enough feeling insecure about one’s English without you pointing it out. I can’t be the only one thinking that redirecting the topic to one’s country of origin is kinda rude. It’s like interrupting someone–which of course certain demographics are Olympic champions at, don’t we know that.
And btw nobody cares that you once had a friend from somewhere-near-where-the-person-with-an-accent-is-from. Well, I don’t. By all means keep talking about the weather or whatever, it’s more interesting.
So I know it sounds frightfully poetic but I couldn’t think of a better title for the photograph. Although I must say, coming up with titles for my photos and blog entries is half the fun of running a blog.
I saw a picture of red roses and red candles on Instagram, which is where I got the inspiration for this. I happened to have some white flowers and I always have white tea lights and I thought black background would be the best. And so here’s the result.
I don’t know how one of the candles got snuffed out and hence the smoke that can be seen on the below picture.
Kinda reminds me of gothic romances.
I’m pleased to announce a new blog for my writing, called Some Writing.
It’s just some short pieces of fiction (usually flash fiction) I felt should be released to the world. It’s only appropriate to make a post about it here.
I’m looking forward to see what I can come up with. I’m no writer, I may sometimes have an idea or two, that’s all.
This blog will continue with photography.
These daisies are a part of a bouquet I got from supermarket.
I like the minimalism of the picture.
Treat yourself. Or share with your friends!
Hey, guess what I’ve done.
There is no system here. It’s just a collection of random things in summer-like pastel colours. And seashells. And a bit of my art there too. Glad to find a use for a year-old magazine again!
It’s like summer, but indoors. Which is very me.
Have you ever… printed your photographs and displayed them in your home… and then took a photograph of those displayed photographs?
Because I have.
I’ve had some of my favourite shots printed in the Polaroid-style format that is trendy now and I hung them on a string with clips… which is also trendy now.
Majority of these have featured here. Interestingly, the last one, which is my best sunset, never has.
The third one from right on the first picture, the purple one that’s out of in focus on every photo it appears in, is a smartphone shot from Imagine Dragons concert I went to last year. The lights were purple at that moment, it wasn’t something I added in–I wouldn’t know how to, anyway. I added the name of the band to it to make it look more artistic. (As it happens, Imagine Dragons have a song called Polaroid, what a coincidence!)
Which brings me to: photographers of WordPress, those of you that use digital cameras, do you print your photos? And do you frame them or display them in any fashion? Do tell me in the comments!
I bought them in Tesco. I think they look rather nice.
Me as ever, coming to you with my mundane photography.
