192/366 Ne spunem povesti. Facem schimb de cadouri. Editam poze.

We tell stories. We exchange gifts. We edit photos.

193/366 Cum realizezi un cliche fotografic? Pai… o intrebi pe mama de inel, iei o carte, pui inelul, bagi profunzime de camp mica, bagi si o sursa de lumina si gata cliche-ul. Ah, si sugestia mamei sa nu mai fie cliche: sa scrie ceva cu trimitere la inima. Gasit-am in Biblie, bineinteles. “Pazeste-ti inima mai mult decat orice.” Clar. Dar cum sa faci asta, cand deja ti-ai pus inima in joc? Nu poti sa te opresti din iubit. Cum faci asta?

How do you make a photographic cliche? Well….you ask your mum for a ring, you take a book, you put the ring, you select a small depth of field, you find a light source and the cliche is ready. Oh, and mum’s suggestion to not make it a cliche anymore: there must be something written that has a connection with the heart. Found it in the Bible, of course. “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” Obviously. But how to do that, when your heart is already at stake? You can’t stop loving. How do you do that?

194/366 Poza asta mi se pare ca ar merge intr-o revista, reclama la ochelari de soare.

This picture seems fit to be published in a magazine, as a commercial for sunglasses.

195/366 Nu cred ca imi gasesc cuvintele in momentele in care trebuie sa exprim multumire, pace, recunostinta, dragoste si asemenea. Dar sentimentele sunt acolo si candva, vor iesi la iveala, intr-un fel sau altul. Astazi ies la iveala prin aceasta fotografie. Multumesc pentru ca imi citesti blogul si ca esti langa mine la film, la teatru, in parc, la fotografii, la diverse proiecte traznite (uneori nereusite – vezi pinhole), uneori in comunitate, alteori singure de capul nostru. Multumesc, multumesc, multumesc!

I don’t think I can find my words in the moments when I need to express thankfulness, peace, gratitude, love and the like. But the feelings are there and, someday, they will surface, one way or another. Today, through this photo. Thank you for reading my blog and for being there beside me, at the movies, at the theatre, in the park, while photographing, doing crazy projects (sometimes a total failure – see pinhole), sometimes surrounded by the community, sometimes just the two of us. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

196/366 Chestia cu inghetata… e ca se topeste.

The thing with ice-cream…it’s that it melts.

197/366 Versetul din Biblie pe care l-am accentuat mai sus… l-am auzit si astazi, intr-un alt context. M-am speriat, pentru ca de obicei nu mi se intampla astfel de coincidente. Dar ma bucur. Pentru ca si pe altii ii preocupa mai mult sau mai putin. Referitor la fotografia de mai sus…. Cred ca un cadou este o extensie a sinelui. Indiferent de forma, pret sau compozitie, intotdeauna va reflecta un pic din noi. E felul nostru de a ne arata sufletul. De-ai arata celuilalt sufletul nostru. Ar trebui sa fie o mare onoare pentru celalalt, care totusi adesea se uita la un lucru material, in loc sa aprecieze substanta.

The Bible verse I insisted upon above… I heard it today, in a different context. I was impressed, because coincidences like these don’t usually happen to me. But I’m glad. To see that others are worried as well, in a bigger or lesser degree. About the photo above… I believe a present is an extension of ourselves. Regardless of shape, price or composition, it will always reflect a part of us. It’s our way of showing our soul. Of showing the other person our soul. The other should feel honored, but more than once he or she looks at the material aspect, rather than the substance behind it.
