it had been a lovely and sunny day, and the three of them had sat down on a bench nearby his house. "so, have you heard what he's been up to lately?", asked one as he was lighting his cigarette. "didn't see him around much." "well, I was told that he has been quite busy with things ... I suppose?", answered three. "but that's good this way, I feel like something good will happen because of that." "I understand your point, three, but still, what should come out of it if he is just running around like a machine doing what he's told to do, where's the space, the freedom?" as usually at this place, two had brought his brush and was wildly swirling it through the air while talking. "I agree!", said one. "that boy's missing out on the fun." a lack of comprehension arose in three's face. "excuse me? really, he did so much lately that I could consider a waste of time, but as much as I know him, it 'makes him feel better' ... he's completely lost the control over his chores, and seeing it from my point of view, he's got to set up some priorities." "number one; stay who you are." "funny, in this world? tell me one person who's been honest all his life." "this artist in this book I'm reading, I think he's been quite real." "what artist, what book?" "yüksel arslan, it's quite good." "hm, not sure about him, has gotten a little over-rated." "rather under-rated, I would say." "ay, can we go back to where we were?", interrupted one. "boy's got to get things straight a little more, doesn't he?" "I'd say so. Combine each and every single thing so it works a whole." "At least, stay true to yourself."
They turned around and looked at me. "Do you understand?"

do not use my photos without my written permission!
I just totally got lost in these photos of yours. I don´t know what to say.. they make me feel so many feelings and tell me a lots of interestng stories. Happy and sad and everything in between. This for example got me laughing aloud and a dialog between those guys (you) developing in my head. Great work!
Whoa. Has anyone ever told you that you're something incredible? Cause I see a totally different artisit than I've ever seen. And it's so wonderful. It's beautiful and meaningful. It's something. It's so real. You're like a riddle and ever time I see your photos I have to figure the riddle out. But the answer is never the same. See when I look at your pictures I have to answer my own riddle. Your photos make me ask my own riddles to myself. It doesn't make sense what I just said but it's what I feel.
Oh ... oh wow. Just, thank you so so much! This is a nice thing to hear .. I always wonder about what impact my art might have, and seeing you saying this now, well ... it's really pleasant. I appreciate it.
There are people with expensive DSRL cameras who simply take photographs of nice things and beautiful girls, and there people CREATING such wonderful pieces of art, adding their own thoughts and so much passion. In my opinion this is much more valuable.
This is going to sound weird, and maybe I should put it in a note, or something, or perhaps that would seem extra creeper-like. I don't know, but I have no shame, so here it goes.
Every time I look at your work, I feel, in a general over-whelming sense of the word, which is odd for me, because feeling, feeling with strength, is odd for me.
Which is likely why I have a deep, ineffable desire to possess you on paper. There's the weird part. It's not a typical phrase, but I assure you it has no malign nor forward intentions.
It's just something that's been digging at me- because if I had the opportunity you would likely find me on your doorstep with a giant sketchbook and my carrying case of pencils. Drawing from a photo is not the same.
I believe that is all. Feel free to let me know that I am crazy. I don't mind.
there's nothing odd or weird about being honest. honesty is one of the most important and valuable things in this world, and it seems as though many fail to realize that. therefore, you sending me this, I think it matters a lot to me. it's not about what you said, but rather about that you said it that makes me truly happy. thank you dear. I appreciate it.
