go west.

A few days ago I was out in the town to find a memory card for my camera. Since I know it’s old I had to take it to see if newer and faster ones can be used on it; turns out it can’t. I decided to take some shots while I was wandering back and forth. This is a lamp post near Dimitrovgrad’s Kaufland.  I tried to catch only the sky and the lamp post, for it creates the illusion that is somewhere really up high, while in reality it’s just ten meters from the ground.

I like the picture, but it wasn’t anything special – just a lamp post. Everyone can take a shot of a lamp post if he has a decent camera. That’s why I added the letter N, S, E and W. As have probably figured out, they stand for North, South, East and West. Nevertheless, I intentionally placed the N in the left position, because when arranged in such way I got the word NEWS. It’s not a masterpiece, but at least, I think, is something unusual.

pizza n dad

Yesterday we were at a pizzeria with my parents, for the first time in probably eight years. However, it’s not the pizza that is important. I had my camera and decided to take some indoor shots, and my mama is always eager to be photographed. I took some shots of her, and after that I took one of my father, and I liked it so much. It’s not that he has the beauty of a model, but I have thought for quite a long time that he is in good terms with cameras.

Here are some (not so well taken) shots:

Severed.

This is a photo of an old (and apparently crumbling) building in Dimitrovgrad, my hometown. It was my first day volunteering at the town’s art gallery, and when we had done the work, I asked the curator if I could take some shots of that building with the gallery’s camera, since it produced much nicer images then my point-and-click camera. She agreed, and I made some forty-fifty shots of everything.

I applied some basic filters, but still, the picture was too meager, so I decided to make good use of the spaces between the windows and the near-perfect perspective, and I only had to figure out what symbol to place. Since I like to reflect on religion, I picked the holy cross, for it went well with the perspective, and also because I thought it would provoke more people to critically assess my piece. It is called “Severed.”, for I think religion has the power to sever things that otherwise would not have been severed.

Also, this is the first piece with my new symbol (I have no idea how it is called), the meaning of which I’m going to explain in an upcoming post.
