memorials: part six by NikolasBrummer memorials: part six by NikolasBrummer
this is the place where it all happened. when I came here yesterday, I felt as if I had forgotten where exactly it had been. I wandered around from one column to another, and as I couldn't really figured it out, I walked away from the bridge to have a clearer view on things. and then it hit me - this night. fireworks around me, the warmest feeling in my heart ... if I were to describe a moment of infinity, this would be it. my eyes watered and suddenly I felt cold and warm in the same second, I felt captured between these two worlds, the present and the past. as the wind blew in my face, I felt as if I could take off and be gone within a second, drifting far away forever.
sometimes I still miss you. sometimes, even when I'm sitting on the tram or I'm out with friends, I feel you, I smell you, I hear you, I see you - everywhere I go, everywhere I look ... it's like you are haunting me. but I put you aside. even though you are still in my heart, I no longer want you to be on my mind.

My favorite thing about you and these photos and those words is that you make me think. About myself, about my friends, experiences, the world, everything. You make me think harder and deeper about all the emotions that sometimes seem simple on the outside, or at a first glance, but go so much farther. Maybe I can't explain it, maybe I'll never explain it all, but then you make me feel like it doesn't need an explanation, it just needs to be.

I myself can't convey with words right now how much this moved me. Of course, it's just words from a person I barely know, but hey, that doesn't matter. You said it at least, and just the realization that you mean it the way ... I'm not even flattered, I am just ... just glad. Glad that my need to create and what comes out of this, that all of this inspires you. Thank you for your words. Really. This touched me on a great level.

I am very happy to hear that! Regardless of how well you know someone, some things can be meaningful, I guess :aww:

Those words really got to me, I always love what you write in the "artist's commentary", but this I can especially relate to.

I'm glad you do, I really am. even though it's painful, I mean ... it's nice to know you are not the only one, isn't it?

You have a real heart that shows in every photo you share with us. Each one has an enormous amount of emotion just pouring out. They all have different emotions yet blend together as a larger whole. You are by far one of the most poetic photographers I've seen. Keep em coming :)

One of the things I love about the memorials series is that you don't take the photos for others to see. You take them for your own reasons, your memories. Although some of the pictures may not look like much from the thumbs, they have incredible meaning.

I'm so glad you said this, I'm so glad you understood. I really mean it as I say it, I either wanted people to simply not look at it or actually get involved with the series - and it seems to me that you did. So thank you. Thank you for all of this.

You're welcome. What you did here was really beautiful. It's one of my favorite things about your photography, that it's not piecing but deeply meaningful. It's very hard to explain the effects because it's like none other.
Your photography seems to put everything else on hold. It puts life on pause so you can remember one moment- of someone else's life.

this was about the break up, wasn't it. I really like this one.

I'm wondering right now if I ever talked about the break-up on here, I know I did on my tumblr, and now I'm simply curious how you got the idea ... but yes, yes it is about the break-up. Or rather, about what was before that, the moments of that.

And I'm glad you do. I really am.

I know about it from your photo of your crying ex girlfriend..and didn't realise it was this hard on you.
If only there were more guys like you in the world.
