it's strange how a few months away you took a photo which you felt to be suiting at that moment; you were sitting somewhere and suddenly the picture for your feelings painted itself in your mind and all of the sudden you knew how to portrait it as well... and the time passed, you thought you changed, your life changed, your feelings changed, and then you go back to this picture and realize that it still does linger on you, in a different way, at a different day. you can't put your finger on it but you know you somehow feel it again, differently, or still, the same. I took this at the lake constance meet-up this summer. it's odd because it started out that I took this photo for myself and found myself surrounded by some wild photographers eventually, and as two of them posted their version of what was originally my idea, I never got around doing something about mine. but today felt to be the day it should be.
I suppose the fact that I don't fully understand this picture myself is just a proof that I don't fully understand myself either.
Your text is so inspiring, as your photo is. I think I can understand this feeling, even if I don't know your story. Maybe the most intense part of the soul can't be described in simple words... That's maybe why you can't explain it, why you can't understand yourself. But, of course, this is my own point of view ^^. Beautiful tones and colors, also and the water is a good element... A lot of purity in it, where we can clear and rest our mind..
I guess that it is that we try to rationalize our thoughts so much even though you can't do that, there is way too much of it all. We should just accept that, probably. And thank you a lot for your words, I appreciate it.
Beautiful! It has a lot of contrast: the well definited colors of the body and clothes, and the mixed colors of the water; the pale skin and the shadows of the water; the serenity of the model and the sinister background... It trasmits different emotions (sadness, peace, desesperation) that are difficult to mix in the same photo. Very good work!! It reminds me Ophelia from Hamlet. After all the madness, she finally gets the peace sleeping in water. I know that a tragic view of the photo but it reminds me that moment. :S
I love that tragic view, aha! Especially Hamlet is one of my favorite plays and it is flattering to hear someone saying that a photo I took kind of reminds them of it, so thank you. I appreciate that, and I am glad you think so.
stunning i can't help but like it at first i wasn't sure wether to watch you or not but when i finished watching your gallery and compared what you've done in the past and what you've been doing now and after i saw your beautiful improvement i said to myself : i'm about to watch one of my future favorite artists. You are one of my favorite artists and i must say: such a beautiful expresion and the colors are just amazing
