A Photographer Disappears
Theme #24: A Photographer Disappears/Evaporates
I really struggled with this subject, trying to figure out a brilliant way in which to show myself disappearing/evaporating after an exhausting (but FUN) 24 hours of shooting…
So I sat down on a bench in the shopping street, just to ponder what now…
Then my eyes fell on the photo store across from me, that was going out of business and I got my photo.
It also concluded my Fotomarathon with almost 3 hours to spare!
I didn’t dare go to sleep though, being afraid I wouldn’t wake up in time to hand in my last pictures…
A Sleepy Picture
Theme #23: A Sleepy Picture
It’s the second to last picture I shot, and also the second-in-competition.
I managed to capture exactly what I wanted in this picture, and I’m SO happy and proud that others can see the qualities as well.
Funny story: I actually considered making this shot for theme #4: City Life, as a pun on the not-so bustling life that is Esbjerg at times.
Full Of Pep
Theme #22: Full Of Pep
What the hell does that mean?
I was most definately not full of much else but weariness at this point…
But I guess if you’re to find anybody full of pep, The House Of Sports would be a good place for it.
My personal opinion of this particular interpretation of the subject? Full of Shi… ooomething else! ;-)
Theme #21: Straight Lines
06:02 in the morning (a beautiful one at that, I might add) and less than 4 hours and three photos to go…
I’m happy I’m still seeing straight (lines)…
Theme #20: Breaking Barriers
Yes, I’ve been dragging a severe depression along for some years now… I hope you guys already know this?
I think quite a few people knew this before I did myself!
It took a loooong time for me to realize how bad a shape I was in and to acknowledge that I had a problem… A problem I couldn’t deal with on my own!
Going to the doctor’s asking for help and getting medication, and seeing a psychiatrist, it all meant breaking a lot of barriers for me.
I’ve also broken down personal barriers by talking to frieends and family about how I feel, as I always thought I could deal with this on my own… But in the end I realized I couldn’t.
In fact there’s no way I’d be where I am today, if it wasn’t for the amazing support and love I get from my family and friends… And not just my closest friends: From EVERYBODY…
It’s amazing and leaves me speechless and shows that it’s definately worth the risk, breaking down a few barriers once in a while :-)
Theme #19: New Life
When issued, the Gasolin’ Box Set, gave new life, not only to the albums and songs themselvews, but somehow also to the vinyl albums.
I just love the way the CD’s are made up to look like the original vinyl albums… Grooves an’ all!
Thing is, of course, that all this “New Life” is already all but extinct, with the advent of mp3’s and streaming music…
Time flies and life renews and reinvents itself all the time…
A Well-deserved Rest
Theme #18: A Well-deserved rest
It’s 01:20 at night and I’ve been out shooting for more than 15 hours, so it’s safe to say I’m having a bit of a crisis at this time!
So, I’m “suffering” from blurred vision and tired legs, but I didn’t dare to go to sleep, as I’d probably not wake up again until after the deadline of the contest ;-)
