Two Quotes.

This shot was done in Frankfurt, Germany in the summer of 2003.

I've been browsing through my archives and decided it was about time to upload some of the things I've done in the past that were just there, gathering dust. My Flickr stream is quite diverse anyway, just because I haven't uploaded anything based on specific or chronological dates. I upload what synchronizes with what I'm feeling, according to my mood of the day, and since I have a particular fondness for everything I've posted here, time becomes irrelevant, and disregards -in a way- the styles that I have adopted or have influenced me throughout my career.

Some of the oldest images in this stream are from 1989, when I was only 15 years old and started considering the camera as my everyday companion. I'm still trying to put the correct dates on them - it's not an easy task. But anyway, the images live forever, whether they were done today, yesterday or 100 years ago.

I found two quotes that seem particularly interesting regarding this matter and make me wonder about the time I've spent being a photographer:

“It’s weird that photographers spend years or even a whole lifetime, trying to capture moments that added together, don’t even amount to a couple of hours.“– James Lalropui Keivom.

“Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop” – Ansel Adams.

Both quotes, incredibly true and brilliant, leave a question mark in the air. But the time for answers floats around as well, and cannot be grasped either. Either way, loving what you do will send a whisper in your ear again, right before your time has come.
