From the Room in the Dark to the Light of the Day
As a “modern” photographer, i mostly use digital cameras… Yet, when i have the chance, i love shooting films and processing them myself in the darkroom for the magic that happens in there has no equivalent in the digital world. These are a few shots i took and developed a while back.
For i know that someday, somehow, true love will come along with locks that fit my imperfect keys and keys able to open my solid locks.
Alleys scare me. During the day, some of them seem ‘okay’ to be cut through, but at night, they turn out to be the most frightening places ever created for you never know who or what is going to come your way.
I know there’s nothing more common than seeing a plane in the sky… Yet, i often think of the people who are up there. I wonder where they’re going, and why. Maybe it’s because i am an immigrant but when i see landings at LAX, i imagine that many of these passengers are coming here to realize their American Dreams and i can’t help but to identify with them and feel empathy.
Keep your spirit high and fight those who try to imprison your dreams – always.
“At Opposite Ends“
They say opposites attract but sometimes when i think about what we’re doing to our planet i wonder.
The place is silent – for now. In a few hours, happiness and excitement will fill the atmosphere; and proud and moved parents will watch their children receive their so long-awaited and hoped for diplomas.
“Passing of the Seasons“
Even though the passing of the seasons is scarcely noticeable in Southern California, time flies and our only option is to keep on dreaming and trying because one thing is sure: it won’t wait for us. And before we know it, winter is here.
