What is Abstraction

This photograph was clicked in a garage, and it’s not really what it looks like. The whole thing is a lie, to be honest. If you were to ask me, I’d tell that this is an aerial shot of a river passing by the mountains on the moon. The one we have. It really is that to me.

Abstraction is a friend of mine that I get to play with in my photographs. I never really want the pictures that I click to be obvious in the story that they tell. What’s so fun in that? You wouldn’t like a trailer that gives you the whole plot of the movie in as little time as possible. I wouldn’t watch that movie.

And, here in this photo I see that the movie might just never really present itself to me – making it impossible to ever come to a conclusion.

Would you be able to live with that unmet feeling forever? How long would it take for you to stop being okay without knowing what you see? To me, it’s just okay to never know. I mean, that’s the point of these concepts that you’ll never fully understand, never come to conclusion with. That’s their whole point. And, I’d say they’re doing a great job at being sources of confusion, anxiety and uncertainty.

Abstraction is just that to me. It is to approach a concept with an eye that’d basically defy all the meaningful stories you could possibly associate with that concept.

To the moon.

Dear Reader

How are you?

I just wanted to sit down and put this on the blog. I have lots to say, and yet I don’t know which messages to pick. I’ll just keep on writing and everything will fall into place. Because, that’s what I know as a solution to everything. Maybe I am wrong, maybe I am right. I know it heals me. I know it nurtures my growth. I know it’s my home.

So, how are you? I hope you’re answering me.

I know I have written many times about how this blog is changing and why. But, this time it’s different. Like all the times, to be honest. This time I just bought my space on the internet – this domain.

I always like to see myself as a creator of art. I don’t know how to be humble on this subject. And, this blog is my creation. My everything, as an answer to what I can create. So, I will only hope to give it my all. There are no spots for negligence when it comes to creating something. You have to give it your whole heart. You have to be so in love with what you create, that you’d find it hard to live without creating it. Passion, only matters to me.

And, this blog is in a way my method of life. This is what gave me a purpose when I had nothing. Or, when I felt like I had nothing in my life. It presented me a chance. Seeing people respond to my words, like what I do and most importantly making me heard, only made me live. Building a sense of community drives me. This blog saved me from what I never saw as something that needed saving.

I want to make people feel at home with my words. Let them choose the stories they want to be a part of. The internet is weirdly capable of creating connections that once seemed impossible. I want to put it to the right use.

What to expect from this blog?

I have given way too much of my time thinking of what this blog’s theme should be. I never realised that I had already faced the answer when I first started this blog. Photos.

I started out to put up the photos that I click and write about them. I believe every photograph has endless stories to tell. So, I am falling back to my roots this time. I am sticking to what feels home. Having loved photography since I can’t remember when, and my passion for writing will be the core of this blog. This will help me in perfecting my image-making skills, my story-telling and most of all – it will help me find that audience I have always been looking for. I hope so.

How often will I post?

I don’t want to make any promises to me or the internet. All I know is I’ll not leave a chance untaken for me to put something on the blog. I click pictures very often, and hopefully it will keep me hooked to the act of posting here.

End notes.

That’s all I wanted to say. It feels good to be back online and talking to my followers. Hopefully we get to create our family out of photos and stories. Please let me know, what are your thoughts on this shift.

I hope you find what you’re looking for.

I heard you edit photos

Unfortunately, not editing photos daily makes me get better at it. I take that back. It makes me feel better about them. I hope they bought it. All photos except Leo were clicked by me. Fortunately, Bruh Vinci gets it. See more!
