btw, Merry Christmas if you celebrate!
In Russia people mostly celebrate at Jan, 7th. But I love to remember my visit to the relatives at the end of December and they celebrated this holiday. They sang Christmas carols in Hungarian and German all the day. And in evening many people were gathered in the house for the dinner and they told so many family stories. Since then I felt that all these traditions are very precious for me.
But I wanted to say another thing. I noticed again that feeling of fresh aspiration to do art, when everything seems interesting and new, and you want to try, to experiment, to search. And to find another people' wonderful ideas, images, and moreover, their persons, their life, expressed in photos or art. I always preferred not very complicated (technically) shoots but experimental ones, which could be executed with simple but unusual effects, in usual habitat but from odd point of view. I loved to discover those worlds in the corners of my room, etc. And now I feel to continue those investigations again. I was lucky someday and it was easy to catch all necessary effects, to catch some ghosts or to embody those imaginary persons.
But all those investigations became slightly out of date. It seems I need to explore myself again.
In these moments I went to dA and I'm glad to see this world still exist! This world of forever young minds which love to play, to dress up, to fool around and to be serious, to express their passions and complex philosophical thoughts.
