So it turns out moving on is easy. Letting go is not…
♫ Labrinth “Jealous”
Hi I just started following u I love ur blog entry’s & u remind me of myself. So I wanted to say hello Hi =) Hope u don’t mind if I follow ya “This too shall pass!!!” -Tiffany
thank you for the follow and for your comment, Tiffany!! “This too shall pass” and “I deserve to be treated better” are my two main matras (so to speak) at this point of my life… don’t seem to work for now lol… ah, well, it takes time I guess… hope all is well for you🙂
Страхотна! И празните рамки, и мъглата ( как я докара?!) , и позата… Браво Алекс!
благодаря, Анна!! точно позата си мисля. че е бая куца, тия ръце трябваше по-добре да ги позиционирам… мъглата е от gradient filter във фш + текстура…която обаче в малкия размер мн кофти се е пикселизирала… нищо, важното е да се пробват нови неща…🙂 много се радвам, че ти хареса кадърът…
This is another beautiful shot as part of your Absence series. Wonderfully composed, and great post-processing. Half light, half dark…half optimisitc, half depressed. I suppose that’s how we feel when we go through challenging times, our emotions pulling us left and right. Letting go is the hardest thing because sometimes memories are always at the front of our mind… Hope you are doing well and positive vibes to you. Always your photos and I feel them❤
thank you so much for this comment, Mabel… this is exactly what I wanted to express here, moving on is one step forward, two steps back for me these days… torn between past and future hopes… still not willing to step out in the light tho…
thank you for being so supportive ♥
I see especially your presence.
Ти си красива жена.
The absent are always wrong.🙂
thank you for your compliment, Phil… I am happy to see you are learning new phrases in Bulgarian🙂 unfortunately appearance has nothing to do sometimes with feeling happy… and yes, the absent are always wrong… that was sweet🙂
hope you are enjoying a wonderful weekend…
I don’t know a single word of Bulgarian but “GoogleTranslation” seems to know a lot !😉
Добър уикенд !
A very powerful photo and the lighting is beautiful, depressing yet somehow hopeful at the same time.
yes, exactly, both depressing and hopeful… thank you so much, Andy… you’ve decoded the mood so well, as always… it’s when you realize you have to let go and still can’t …
Simply stunning! You do well with the series🙂
thank you so much, Indah!! am happy you follow the series, means a lot🙂
Brilliant photo Alex. I love the empty frames on the wall (and you’re looking fine).
am happy you like the empty frames! these could be a metaphor for past memories… or future ones, that are yet to be written…
“fine” as in “fine as wine” or as in “fine, but not great”? just kidding lol😀 but given the lousy posing, it surely is the second one🙂 I needed to experiment more with the pose here… next time!
thank you so much, Viking, have a fabulous weekend!
Fine as in beautiful woman. The frames are a great metaphor. My first thought was that it had been something there, but I like your future approach better – it’s more optimistic.
yeah, I know, it’s a good sign there is some optimism in this photo, right?🙂
thank you kindly once again, Viking🙂
ps. a woman is really beautiful when she’s loved… I’m not… but that was so very kind of you to say…🙂
If a woman is really beautiful when she’s loved, I guess the same goes for men.
I guess so🙂 you know when you fall for someone and they become “your kinda perfect” … this is also exactly how that other person feels too🙂
Beautiful image, Alex. I love how light is flowing into the room..illuminating it slowly, but surely..Life is full of hope and possibilities..sometimes it just takes a while for the room to light up🙂
thank you so much, Uday🙂 I experimented with lighting here, took the shot in a dimly lit room with the last light for the day coming in from the window… it sort of created this natural flow and gradient transition of light (and mood) , which I then highlighted a bit in postprocessing, which is not very good btw, but I’m still learning… and yes, I think it creates this half-hopeful feeling about the photo… it’s a period of transition for me, still very much dealing with depression, yet starting to have better days too…
Contains everything that fits that mood!
I’m exploring the concept of absence and how to express my moods related to it… so it’s a process of experimentation and learning… good to know you like how this one turned out!! thank you, Herbert!!
ps. am still trying to figure out what should be the size of photos posted, this one looks completely blurry and out of focus in the size I’ve posted it here… can you remind me once again the size of your photos posted? thanks…
For web publishing (serving all that different pads/phones/PCs) that resolution is absolutely fine. Maybe the blur comes from scaling.
right, I remember you mentioned scaling before too… I may have to check out other wp themes too then, to see how it works there… thank you so much for your reply!!
Абе ти си някакъв феномен, Алекс! Трудно е да се продължи напред без да пуснеш нещо да си отиде. Но понякога не е нужно…важното е да можеш да живееш с това нещо, без да ти пречи. А снимката е перфектна, композиция и светлина и субект, всичко!!! Много вдъхновяващо!!!
феномен на глупостта в личните отношения съм аз…
за снимката, изглежда прекрасно в голям размер, тук обаче резолюцията я е смачкала, изглежда без фокус, текстурата е пикселизирана и въобще съкс биг тайм… то не е важно, въпросът е, че исках да пробвам такава по-драматична светлина, интересно беше, в смисъл как се заснема, кои са трудностите, какво настроение носи… a субектът е най-големият недостък на кадъра, ако питаш мен лол😀
и благодаря за милите и мъдри думи, Боби…🙂 хх
В личните отношения има винаги две страни, ти и другите. Ти можеш всичко много “умно” на направиш, и най-честно да постъпиш и пак да се получи накрая някаква каша, често болезнена, и най-вече за теб. Мисълта ми е, че грешките в личните ни отношения не са винаги по наша вина или наша отговорност. Не можеш всеки път да направиш от чудеса от храброст, но важното е да се опиташ. Победата е именно в опита, дори и резултата да е провал. И спирам с мъдрите мисли, обаче да, живей с вдигната глава и гледай на тези “глупости” като на трофеи🙂 А за техническите подробности, те имат значение ако снимаш за да те оценява някой академично; много често ефекта е по-силен и важен от перфектния фокус! Прекрасно е всичко!!! Целувки!!!
аххахх, трофеи вика😀 голяма си скица… и много се радвам на нашето приятелство, макар и само виртуално… засега ♥
Ah, so sad, Alex…..
more like pathetic, if you ask me… ah, well, I live and learn…
thanks for stopping by, Lois!!
such a gorgeous shoot love it
thank you so much, Bernie!!
A very moody and dramatic photo, Alex. And the associated words are so apt. It makes me want to reach in and give you a hug. You’ll have to accept a virtual hug in the meantime.
I’d like a hug, Lignum… a real warm hug… that would put an end to this series…
thank you for the virtual hug too in the meantime🙂
Cool comme auto portrait !
merci, Thierry🙂 bises!
Those empty chairs and frames . . . . not to mention the haunting light. The photography of poetry.
it’s the photoraphy of my inner darkness and haunting insecurities…
