Olga and I went for a short walk today. For some strange reason, I’ve been seeing ‘X’s all over the place. I’ve seen an unfinished building with lots of ‘X’s in it, a sign pointing into direction of Xception cafe, a photo studio Kodak eXpress, and few others. Not all of these were photographable, but I managed to make a couple of shots. Check them out here.
I have also noticed that ‘Picture of the day’ project does improve my vision of things. I have started to notice photographs everywhere and I started to care about thing around me much more. Olga and I were sitting in the cafe, eating ice-cream, and she was so beautiful that I wanted to make a picture of her like this, but somehow my eye noticed by itself that there is a closed umbrella behind Olga that will look ugly on the photograph and that there is an ugly tungsten lamp on the right of her, which would spoil the picture too. I than tried to rearrange the frame mentally, but by the time I was done, the atmosphere was gone. At least I haven’t made yet another disappointing picture and saved the web from another portion of crap. Good me.
