deep down in our hearts, it lingers. it's this feeling; just a short time ago we told ourselves that no one really mattered in the sense of whatever they think of us, that's up to them and not to us. we no longer care and live up to no one's expectations; but the more we turn away from everyone else, the more we let go, the more we tighten our grip around ourselves. we want to succeed; not for them, not for her, but simply for ourselves. we've set limits, guidelines and rules ... and if we fail, we fall apart. and the feeling comes creeping up inside of us and we can no longer help it ... we are numb. we are ourselves. we are worthless. and most of all ... we never had the decision if we wanted it to come this way or not. so all we do is watch the play.
(I really can't help it, usually I don't like writing something like this after an artist's-comment; but to everyone out there, I'm feeling fine today. I really do. just in case anyone worried or anyone wanted to cheer me up. you are all lovely souls)

When I first looked at it, I saw the inner demon concept, but than I thought about the Looking Glass from Alice Adventures in Wonderland. That made me think maybe you have to look pass your demons to find wonder.
"So all we do is watch the play."?Are you kiddin' Shakespeare?This one line gives the whole image's another feeling!OhMyGod,write more often Nikko!
On other news,I'm glad to see you're ok,and your editing is getting even better!The darkness on the eyes and the way your face looks,and also your body posture and the mirror hanging from nowhere and the fact that you're in the forest all alone,just with this awful feeling...Self-Hatred...I can't think of a better way to picture it.
You're welcome, my pleasure...and speaking of...it's good to see the ivy bloom through your lens. I just knew the dancer wanted to embrace his photographer as soon as I saw him...that look is probably what made you gregarious, too! Enjoy it all, ~ R.
that is such a lovely way of putting it, and it kind of stunned me that you noticed it; I mean, with the line, it was more or less intelligible, but that you noticed the dancer and my inner world just throughout my work, I find that fascinating.
You've always been eloquent...here, in symbols in your photographs and words, and the same when you're Tumbling. So 1+1 on this one was easy. You share that world so wonderfully that it's a real pleasure to see the author and photographer enjoying the happiness you deserve...and most importantly expressing those pleasures. Best wishes, ~ R
Oh god I love this, as if you're afraid of the floating image of yourself, depicting depressive thoughts. I can see the movement in your pose as if you're just about to lift yourself up and take flight away from it in fear. I just hope that you're sucking in and that you burned your ribs to add definition to them, and that you're not actually that dangerously thin... all the love my heart bares to you.
Ohh...or even make you, the mirror, and your reflection in the mirror in black and white and the background in color. Would make you stand out more to me too. Just my thoughts on it though. Keep up the awesome work
I love it. And I have an idea of what I think would be an interesting edit of the colors. If you made everything but you and the mirror, and your reflection in the mirror in black and white. Just to make them stand out that much more. I don't know why, but I love editing things to where only certain things are in color. XD I think it makes them pretty interesting or neat sometimes.
Einfach mal der Wahnsinn, wie Du aus solchen "Locations" so märchenhafte, ausdrucksstarke Bilder zauberst. Dein Bilderstil ist wirklich sehr beeindruckend, und gleichzeitig auch so wahnsinnig inspirierend. Auch hier ist dir eine wunderbare Aufnahme gelungen, und vor allem sehr ästhetisch. Mehr davon!
